I have a 7 month old and we have noticed head tremors for the last 5 months. Occasionally it seems like his arms may tremor too, but weare so panicked with each occurence that it is hard to tell. They occure mainly when he is having a bottle (or nursing) and falling asleep. Once it happened while he was falling asleep but was not nursing or bottle feeding, just sucking on a pacifier. I spoke to our pediatrition and he thought it was something he would out grow. He did not feel that it was seizure related since it was only his head. He said not to worry about them and there was no need to interrupt them. They have tapered off over the last month or so because he has been eating more solids than bottles and he is not falling asleep while eating. They really freak me out and I can't help but get scared and worried about them. No one I have spoke with has experienced anything like this with their own children nor have I with my previous two. Can anyone give me some advice?
