Hello, My Baby Woke Up From A Nap In Her

default
Posted on Tue, 2 Feb 2021
Question: Hello, my baby woke up from a nap in her car seat today and started vibrating her whole body. I grabbed her arm to see if it would stop and I could feel her vibrating. She acted totally normal. Just a little fussy in the beginning. But I picked her up and she wrapped her arms and legs around me and still vibrating but acting completely normal. She vibrated probably 60 seconds total. Any idea what this could be? She’s 10 months.

Brief Answer:
Need not worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Welcome to Ask A Doctor service

I have gone through your query and understand your concern.

If the baby was acting completely normal during the episode, and there was no frothing from mouth or up-rolling of eyes, this is not a seizure and we need not worry. Also, in seizure, baby will be very drowsy and sleepy after the event.

This might be from hypothermia or cold stress, where body responds by shivering to keep core body temperature normal. So just keep her well clothed and avoid exposure to cold. This can be from jitteriness also. Nothing to worry as of now.

I hope this answer will help
