Newborn response: The obvious answer is that they are cold, but if they are very young, under 3-4 months, they are likely having a moro reflex, a primitive muscle reflex where moving them a little bit or jostling them causes the arms, legs, or jaw to "quiver" as if they are shivering.

My baby is 10 wks, he caught cold & has a bad breath, the dr gave him ventoline syrup bt since i gave him it his leg is trembling, am worry is it normal?
