Hello Iyan, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Babies are born with several types of physiological reflexes that can appear / appear when given certain stimuli. One of the reflexes that often cause parents to feel worried is the Moro reflex. This reflex causes the baby to look frightened or startled and tighten his entire body, including his hands and feet, often appearing like a seizure. This reflex can occur for no apparent reason, but generally occurs when a baby hears a loud sound, gets sudden movements (for example, being held when he is lying down), or when the baby feels a sensation like falling.
Moro reflex is a reflex that normally occurs. This reflex will disappear by itself when the baby is 4-6 months old. Some things you can do to reduce this reflex include:
Swaddling the baby while the baby is sleeping Turns on a constant sound (white noise) during the baby sleeps Avoid making sudden movements near the baby, for example when you want to hold the baby, you can talk to him first or touch his head or hands first avoid throwing or throwing make a dropping motion, especially if the baby's head is not upright
If you are worried that the condition is not normal, you can also take your baby to the pediatrician to see firsthand the movements of the baby you mean. If your baby has other symptoms such as a seizure and not a shock, the baby looks unconscious after experiencing a "seizure", there is a fever, the baby continues to sleep and is difficult to wake up, immediately take your baby to the hospital for further evaluation and treatment.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
