1 Answer:

Hi.


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:

epilepsy
electrolyte disturbance
brain infection
peripheral nerve disorders
certain tumors

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.
