  • I kind of remember my kids shaking a little. Like a light tremor when they are about to fall asleep. I think it's normal.

  • A small amount of shaking is quite normal, I do it too when I'm absolutely exhausted, so I think it's quite normal.

  • I asked my Dr. about this because I was pretty concerned. He said that it's actually caused by a little bit of reflux when they're drinking and dozing. He said not to worry about it; that it's perfectly normal!
