My 6 month old son has been jerking his head side to side sometimes but others have been to just one side. I videotaped it to show to his doctor but am waiting to get an appointment. I have been worried about this for awhile but I have gotten even more worried today. He was sitting in his exersaucer and he started. It lasted for a few seconds then he stopped. He started again a few seconds later. This went on for about 5 minutes. His lip went down to the side while he was doing one of them. I feel like a worry wart mom because about 4 out of his 6 month life we were in and out of the hospital. He has laryngomalacia. It is better now because when he was 2 months old he had surgery on his throat to help. My mom has epilepsy and that is all I know about my family history because I am adopted. So I guess I am a little cautious. Any thoughts might be helpful.
