  • Both of my boys legs use to shake when they streched but you should ask about it when she goes to the doctors to ease your mind. =)

  • Use your phone to video this happening. Then you can show it to the doctor of the nurse. Remember that babies are not quite finished when they are born. This should settle down over the next month, but at least you will have that video to refer to, just in case.
