Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.


The movement of the baby's hands and feet can be a natural thing as a process of growth and development of the nervous system and muscles. However, because the process is not yet perfect, sometimes the baby's movements appear rough and fast as if shivering.


But this also does not rule out a sign that the child is shivering. Shivering is the body's response to increasing temperature, it can occur in response to certain infections which are usually accompanied by fever, such as flu, lung infections, urinary tract infections, etc. Shivering can also be a warm response to the body in cold conditions.


And also to be aware, the repeated movement of the child's limbs can also lead to abnormalities in the central nervous system that cause seizures, for example, febrile seizures, brain infections, brain hemorrhage, epilepsy.


For that, you should confirm the cause of the baby's complaints by checking your child with a pediatrician so that it can be examined directly. If necessary, the doctor will perform blood tests to trace the cause.


Some of the things you can do:



Do not stretch the baby, let the legs and hands move to optimize the development process of the limbs
If there is a fever, compress the baby with a warm cloth
Give breastfeeding regularly and adequately to keep her immune system good

That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful :)



Regards,
