You can call it that: if baby is otherwise normal in terms of development and eating, sleeping, social interaction, and tremors stop when you hold the hand or when baby is sucking, it will eventually go away. you could call it immature nervous system, but it is just a natural part of the infant‘s development, along with all the other fun reflexes and curious things babies do
