See Your Doctor Now: Reassurance that this is normal behavior cannot be given at this time. More information is needed. It is very important to know how long this behavior has been going on. Additionally your child's medical history, pre-natal, natal, and postnatal history are crucial to know as well. Recommend video recording your child during episodes and have doctor review now. Early intervention is best.
