  • My guess would be adrenaline... I shake sometimes when I get upset/excited.

  • LOL...reminds me of my son when he was that little. Depends really if she shakes them herself back and forth or if they shake on their own. You should be able to tell the difference. But for right now I would say that as long as it isn't affecting her in anyway, giving her discomfort I would just assume it could be from the overwhelming sensation the emotions give her and it is normal. But if they shake on their own and end up causing issues down the road then I would consult your doctor about it.

  • My cousin's baby does the same. I don't think it's anything to worry about. She's probably just easily excited, and can't contain herself.

  • My son started doing that when he was a baby. He is three and still does it.

  • My son's lip would quiver whenever he was afraid as a baby. It stopped when he got older.
