my ds is gunna be 6 months old in a few days (how did that happen!! lol) and for the last month or so, he will get a tremor while he is nursing, maybe once every few days. today it was longer and more noticeable. it only happens when he is nursing, half asleep mostly. it maybe happened once when he was sitting on my lap. my dh thinks it has to do with when he is trying hard to support his body in a certain postition when he is fatigued (kind of like when someone has a lazy eye)...but when he is nursing I am holding him and he seems relaxed. mostly his head shakes, and his arm...the one he just had his whole upper body was shaking and it lasted for maybe 10 seconds, maybe longer. it looks like someone with Parkinsons, like a rhythmic, uncontrollable, mild shake. almost like he is caught in a loop, if that makes any sense.
we see a pediatrician infrequently, and last saw him when ds was almost 5 months and i brought it up and he asked alot of questions and seemed concerned, but then just said it was a nerve impulse and should go away. I know newborns can do this, but he is a big boy and has excellent control of his body usually...been holding his head up since a few weeks, rolling around the floor, does a bit of light crawling....etc.
he is a drug free, homebirthed, non vaxed non circed 20 pound 5 month old. (I think thats all his vital stats
He has never been sick or ever had any health concerns yet. One thing is when he was born, he was crowning a very long time, maybe 10 or 15 contractions (about 1/2 hour) and his head was 15 inches, about. He had very bloodshot and slightly crossed eyes his first few weeks, because of the pressure from crowning my midwife said. the pediatrician wasnt concerned and it all healed fine.
okay, thats the background and situation....now i am ready for the moms to say 'oh, my dc did that all the time and he is 20 years old now and fine' lol.
