My daughter is almost 10 weeks old and since day one of bringing her home I've worried about seizures. I've worried about her breathing too. I worry a lot. A few days ago I was talking to my mom on the phone when i caught my daughter "startle" in her rocker, but it wasn't her normal startle. Her arms were closer to her sides (kind of in a "come at me, bro" gesture) and her eyes got big. (she does tend to get wide eyed often though) and they seemed almost blank. She did it again, but much less pronounced and then nothing.
Then yesterday I attached her hanging toys to her rocker and was rocking her when she did a normal startle, but after did 3-4 tenses. She just tensed her arms out at her sides a little and spread her hands open, but each one was less pronounced. my bf caught the last one and said he thinks I'm being silly...
Then this morning she startled twice on my lap, but she was falling asleep. Shes also very jerky. She twitches and jerks around on me before she falls asleep or if she wakes up. Kind of like thrashing about. She also jerks around a lot in general. Is all of this normal??
Also I used to change her on her pack n play changing table, but switched to her actual changing table and when I did she would startle multiple times and cry until I had my bf come hold her hands and she would clutch him and then settle down while i changed her. She doesn't seem to do this anymore, but it still scared me now that i'm thinking about it because she would continue to startle without and thing to trigger it because she would be laying flat and I'm always gentle with her when i lay her down....
