Last night after 20 month old DS fell asleep his legs starting doing a spasm/shaking type thing. They would spasm every 20 seconds or so and then he would kick and be still until the next one. This went on for about 3 hours. It didn't matter if I was hold him or he was lying in bed. He woke up several times in this 3 hour window and seemed happy and normal and didn't have any issues walking or didn't complain or act like he was in pain. I rubbed them with Traumel and he acted like one leg was a little more sensitive then the other (but both were shaking). After about a half hour they finally stopped and he slept good the rest of the night.
He was overtired- he went to bed late and didn't get very good naps yesterday (but still about an hour and fifteen minutes.) He is still breastfeeding at night, but I was wondering about a possibly dietary defiancy? Or maybe he was dehydrated?
Any ideas?? I am going to contact my pedi and also my alternative health chiro today but thought I would see if anyone had any similar experiences.
