OMG! Finally. My daughter started stiffening her limbs while crossing her ankles & crossing her wrists at about 3 months old. She does this in her highchair on the floor and in her stroller. She is now 22months and continues to do this. Sometimes this behavior slows down and then out of the blue resumes again. I as well have talked about this with the Dr. several times. It drives me crazy because I don't know whats wrong or if she is in pain. As a small infant she would fuss & cry when she did this however she never cries when she does it now. I have been afraid that it hurts and maybe she just got use to the pain. Our Dr. says it isn't seizure related because we can brake the behavior and move and bend her limbs. She is a high energy child that doesn't like to sleep as long as the typical child. She has been this way since she was very tiny. She has a huge vocabulary and acts older then her age. I can't believe that no Dr. can help any of us with this odd behavior.
