My daughter is 6 months old. She was sleeping on my chest this afternoon and sometimes when she sleeps on me and i move she will cry cuz i moved her a bit. Well today i went to turn off the lamp beside me and she started crying but then she started to shake. Really bad. Like jerking. Scared me so much i jumped up, blew in her face so she would catch her breath and tried my very best to calm her down. When i calmed her down, about 30 seconds later she started doing it again. She was jerking and crying and her lips turned purple. I yelled at my husband to call 911. I was so afraid. He told me she was just fine and that she just got scared from a bad dream or something. It didnt seem like that at all. I know my baby...that wasnt a bad dream. I took her outside to get some fresh air. She has been fine since then.
Should i call a doctor tmrw and get her checked out just to be sure? Or am i just worrying too much? I know she has been going thru a growth spurt cuz she is eating a ton and sleeping a LOT so i thought, maybe she got some kind of leg cramp but didnt know how to react or respond and it just freaked her out...what do you think?
I just got off the phone with a doctor at Children's Mercy and they said that it very well could have been a seizure, but because she is doing fine now and that it lasted under a minute that that is very reassuring. But she said if nothing happens tonight, to defintely bring her in within the next couple days just to check her out and make sure everything is fine. Which was my orginal plan.
Thank you ladies so much! I really appreciate you taking the time out to help me. Your comments really have made me feel a bit better in dealing with this. I honestly had a feeling like i was going to lose her when i saw her face and the way she was acting...
thank you so much...Answer Question
