My little boy sometimes gets this weird leg-shaking thing when he's nursing - he'll be latched on, going to town, and then his leg just starts involuntarily shaking. He doesn't otherwise have seizures or anything like that, and the ped (clueless as she is) said not to worry about it, though it is kind of freaky.
I don't know?
My son did this at around that age. It went on for a couple of months. I took him to see our doc after it started happening and he said it was probably just an immature nervous system thing and that he would outgrow it. And he did! It only ever happened while he was nursing (or taking a bottle while I was at work) and juuuuust about to fall asleep.
