Infants Aged 13 Months Are Still Shocked?
Hello, my child is 13 months old, but why are you still so shocked? Is it dangerous?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Shock in babies is usually described with both hands suddenly raised, only a few moments later return to the side of the body. This shock condition in babies can occur even though he is sleeping. This shock in babies is called the Moro reflex, and is normal if it occurs up to 6 months of age.
So that in the case of your child, with your baby still being shocked at the age of 13 months, this is something that should be given further attention. Among the possible disorders that occur are disorders of the central nervous system or signs of certain developmental disorders.
Our advice, take your child to the pediatrician for further tests, and in the meantime, still meet your child's nutritional needs, try to hold and calm the baby whenever he is shocked, as this may reflect the feeling of fear he has.
Hopefully answered your question.
