Hello moms!!

Noticed a strange behaviour in my little one..Today while breastfeeding his head and hand were twicthing for few secs..also few days back,one of his legs was shaking while breastfeeding (happened twice on diff days)..Quite worried after these incidents..

What could be the reason? Is it alarming? What could it be??

How old is your baby ?

Small babies do like that many times.. keep a check if you feel something then consult doctor once.;; One they are adjusting to new atmosphere after birth.. don't know it's true but elders have told babies can see their past so that why sometimes all this happens... Nothing to worry

Richa Chowdhary - He is almost 5 months old..

Check if baby is feeling cold or may be because of some loud sound small babies do like that... if you feel it’s regular then check with your doctor..

If These jerky movements happened for few seconds, dont worry.; Babies get startled and also have dreams that make them twitch and jerk up suddenly. However, if this happens for prolonged periods in a pattern,; talk to the doctor.

Not regularly neither for s long time.. the twitching thing happened just once today for the first time.. and shaking of one leg some few days back.. it stopped as soon as I put my hand on it

It looks like normal,i don't think it's happening all by itself. Your bab6 must be doing it purposely like playing with his own foot. My lo does that a lot,keeps kicking,twitch hands and legs. But if you observe anything out of ordinary,wont harm to rev8ew with paed once!

ritu singhal - neither of it looked intentional actually..it was diff from the usual kicking.. but it stopped soon after I put my hand.. hopefully it won't happen again.. fingers crossed

Great,👍 keep observing,if in doubt do check!

Thanks Richa Chowdhary , Satarupa B Kaur , ritu singhal;
