Hi ladies
I always know I can come on here for support
My baby boy is 7 months now and whilst I know it can be normal for newborns to be 'twitchy' I'm wondering whether this is a range of 'normal' for a 7 m old .

He's developing well and everything
He is very twitchy when falling asleep which I know can be normal but today I noticed it when he was relaxing too jut awake watching tv... I could just see little twitches not big repetitive ones just his body looked restless and I could see his hand and foot twitching a bit. He was consious and breathing fine . It didn't seem like a seizure I know there can be subtle ones .

He does if sometimes when falling asleep on bottle or boob too .

I'll ask the ped but wanted to know ifany babies are twitchy like this? Can a baby be twitchy when relaxed ?

Does he settle after a bit? I read that all babies twitch a bit...the odd leg or arm etc. If you're worried you'll have to see the GP as it won't go away;ll keep looking and fretting. But having said that, some twitchness is normal in all humans as they fall into a deep sleep.

Here's a link with some info but the Dr is the best port of's probably nothing...we all get anxiety about our babies. I was convinced both of mine had various things when they were tiny.
