For how long does a baby twitch and jerk in their sleep? Mine is 5/6 weeks old right now, and it is starting to freak me out. How long can this go on and be considered normal?
I don't know what to think; he jerks his arms, legs, head, etc periodically while sleeping. When did yours grow out of it?
bedsharing, knitting, toddler-nursing, nerdy, babywearing mama!
in his third month, he did it once or twice, then not after that...

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.
my ds was doing that at birth and he was called "jittery". He would jerk and twitch, rhythmically in his sleep, and my mom and mil both convinced me to call the ped, I got the immature nervous system answer, but it kept going longer and longer, and I brought him in video taped it, and he was diagnosed with seizures, almost constantly while he slept. It only lasted till he was 6 months old, he was on phenobarb.
Again that was MY experience, and it's probably nothing, but it's worth getting checked out, especially if your mommy radar is concerned
