Complaints about your baby 5 months of experiencing tremors while drinking milk or waking up is a normal muscle vibration found in infants aged 5 months. This condition is related to the baby's muscular abilities that are not yet perfect. Babies still continue to grow and develop in their daily lives.
The development of the baby's muscles will follow the neurological or neurological development of the baby, so the baby's nervous system continues to develop rapidly from birth until 6 months and up to 5 years later. So you will often encounter certain muscle movements, certain body reflexes, or maybe the baby's development in getting to know their environment. At the age of 0-5 years, infant development will continue, both related to cognition, linguistics, social, emotional and motor functions. Therefore, there is a complaint of shaking in your baby when you wake up and drink breast milk is probably a natural complaint that occurs during the growth and development of your baby.
