Infants Aged 4 Months Are Often Shocked Like Seizures?
Afternoon, my baby from the age of 1 month until now the age of my child was about to step on 4 months, when he was shocked / sometimes not my baby’s whole body of my baby was throbbing like a seizure, but not in a state of fever or something else, more often in asleep, what happened to my child? Are these rights naturally experienced by babies?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Newborns up to 6 months old, have a Moro reflex. Moro reflex is one of the normal reflexes in infants, in addition to the hand reflex and suction reflex. Moro reflex is characterized by the baby raising both hands when surprised, generally babies are easily shocked when sleeping on their backs.
By pediatricians, infants aged less than 6 months are subjected to a Moro reflex examination by lifting the baby's chest and head and then dropping suddenly, then quickly being recaptured. This check is done in bed. The examination results are said to be normal if there is a Moro reflex (positive Moro reflex), ie the baby immediately raises to his two hands. However, if the Moro reflex is negative or the hand is raised just one side, there is a problem with the baby's nervous system.
Every baby sleeps, try to position the baby facedown, tilted left or right, do not lie on your back. Then give the baby a blanket covering the body to the feet. And give it to the left and right sides of a baby pillow, so the baby feels flanked (not alone).
If so the baby still looks shocked like a seizure, it's good for the mother to consult with a pediatrician. So that you can do a direct examination to find out whether there are abnormalities or not.
Thus hopefully useful.
