So when I feed my 10 month old dd baby food, she sometimes starts shaking uncontrallably, only last for a min or two, i dont know if its cuz she excited or she may have neurological problem? I am not sure what to make out of it, and she doesn't choke on the baby food that she eating (she only eating stage 2), so any advice or if i should talk to her pedi on monday, what do you all think?

Definitely talk to the doctor .  Is it a full body convulsion where joints get stiff or just waving her arms and legs around?

her body doesn't get stiff, its more of i think what you said about waving arms legs around as the rest of her body shakes too, but never stiff that i have noticed

Waving arms/legs tends to make the torso shake as well.  Try it for yourself.   Still talk to her doctor though about any concerns.

Take some food along and feed her with the doctor watching.

Check with your doctor. It could be a seizure. I worked with kids and some seizures are not the full on the ground shaking. One kid just nodded his head when he had a seizure.

Ask her doctor. It's probably nothing more than her getting exc9ited about eating but you definitely want to know for sure!
