Jerk movements

My LO has been doing this since she was born and is going for a EEG this fri to rule out seizures. It's always when she is in a deep sleep and usually on one side. Anyone else experiencing this? The neurologist believes she will out grow this in a few months, but still wants to perform the test since it does run in my family.

    Yup 3 kids and now I'm experiencing this with my LO. Can't notice something if I never experienced it. My LO also gets it bad to the point even when I hold her it does not stop.
  • What PP said. I have always known it to be normal. It helps prevent SIDS.

    @hswan91011, isn't that why they say to swaddle? Because the jerking movements wake them up.

    Even when she is swaddled it happens.

  • I want ice cream too but I can't have dairy.

    That didn't take long. Something this Serious you want to act a fool.

    Well I wasn't going to share this about my LO but it is a concern.

    Hope you now see what I'm talking about. It's just going to get worse.

    I just YouTube it and no it's nothing like that. It honestly looks like she is having a seizure in her sleep. I had to make a video for her doctors to see and the neurologist which is why she has an EEG coming up to make sure.
  • Good luck! I hope its nothing serious!

  • Good luck hope it is nothing serious. Don't worry about what people are saying. Obviously if you neurologist is concerned you have every right to be worried.
