Was just wondering about this...
She used to tremble a little bit, like the quivering chin and shaking legs, but it seems to be getting more pronounced, especially when she's upset or seems tired. The trembling gets kinda strong, especially in the legs and face. Anyone else dealing with this?

I remember Peanut doing trembling every now and then when he was a newborn. I never knew why he did it though.

Audrey does this too, and yeah, it does seem more pronounced when she's tired.

DS does this (and did it in utero)...sign of a devoping neuro system. DD never did this, so I was a bit freaked out. I've heard it can last 2-4 months.

Ds did this the first 3 weeks give or take. And Ds1 did it after he was born. We asked at the hospital and were told it was nerve related as well.

My DS did this when he was born for a few weeks. My pediatrician said it's because he was slightly premature (36w3d) and the coating on the nerves are sometimes not completed in premature babies. I can't remember the term (something that starts with a "m"....myla-something???). Anyway, it eased up when he was about 3 months old and was completely gone at 6 months.

That being said, it is always a good idea to talk to your own doctor about this sort of thing.
