Many possible causes: First of all, you want to make sure that your baby is having true epileptic seizures and not some other non-epileptic events. Causes of seizures depend on age and situation. There are many possible causes including fever, metabolic changes, prior abnormal brain development, brain injury, tumors, strokes and hemorrhages, and genetic causes. It is best to seek expert advice from your doctor(s).
