Hands And Feet Often Move Like Spasms In Newborns?
my son is 45 days old. Since birth Sleep often moves arms and legs like a spasm. At the age of 1 month I took it to the posyandu but the midwife did not dare to give immunizations for fear of any abnormalities. Dangerous? What caused it?
Sleep patterns in infants are different from adults, so the condition of the baby during sleep can only make the baby's arms and legs move so that it looks like a seizure, but actually it is a normal thing. Does your child have a fever? Does the seizure always occur every sleep?
Some diseases can also cause seizures in infants, such as:
peripheral nerve disorders
therefore, it is recommended that you immediately check your child directly to the pediatrician, so the doctor can examine the condition of your child further. Maybe later additional tests will be carried out such as blood tests, or EEG if necessary. It's important to give enough milk to your child.
