My youngest has started shaking his head back and forth , like he's saying no, only his eyes are rolled up when he's doing this. I though it was just a new thing he figured out how to do, but he'l be in the middle of eating or crawling around and stop and his head starts shaking, if he's crawling he'll fall right after...this makes me glad he hasnt started standing yet. Should I be worried?

 Call your pediatrician.  They will decide if its something worth being seen for.  They will probably say its involuntary as some "new movements" are as kids first learn them or will have you keep a log of when it is done.  Just call ... it will ease your mind a bit.

I would definitely have it checked. A couple a years ago they tested my oldest son for seizures. Apparently there are a type of seizure that kids can have and you don't even know its happening. It has more to do with the eyes and is sort of an internal one. It's been a while and I don't want to give you incorrect information. It could be nothing but it is always better to be safe them sorry. Good luck!
