Before I start, I *did* call the ped. on this one as well.
This morning while nursing my 4 mth old DS he started shaking--upper body (arms on up). It lasted less than a minute and he did not break his latch, cont'd nursing then fell asleep on me. I called the doctor, he woke up a little, resumed nursing and did a lesser version of the same shaking. While shaking, I held his arms but that did not stop it. After, he came off breast, looking alertly at me and smiling. There have been no other changes in him in any way. He has been extremely alert and active since birth--tracked very early and rolled bsck to tummy consistently at 11 wks. I say this because the ped is sure it was not a seizure but normal newborn tremors due to undeveloped nervous system. I just think it's odd I'd be seeing this now for the first time at 4 mths. Yet if it had been a seizure, it seems like it would be hard to maintain nursing the way DS did.
