at approximately six months old I noticed my son would occasionally just sort of space out. His eyes would just have this pensive fixed gaze like he was off somewhere in his precious little head. It scares me so much. Does anyone know about this?
Do all babies do this?
Is there something wrong?

my baby does. i think she's just thinking because she will come out of it and usually look at me and smile.

does your baby engage with you? does his face go slack when he doe this? how long does he do this for?

i had a friend who had the type of seizures where she wouldn't twitch she would just stop focusing and her face would lose expression. she said it was like being in a dream, she could see what was happening but not move. fwiw, she took some meds and was fine.

eh. who needs a signature?
