What is head bobbing means.worried about that in my 10 m old otherwise normal healthy baby with development milestones met.ped assured not infantile s?

Though there are : many fairly benign causes of head-bobbing I'd be uncomfortable reassuring any parent without pediatric neurological & ophthalmological evaluations. Spasmus nutans alone, e.g., starts between 4 mos-3 yrs. & often resolves on its own. It's accompanied by nystagmus, rapid eye movements. Gastroesophageal Reflux is another possibility.

Jerking Episodes: HellCat262243. The jerking described is not typical. Infants, particularly newborns, have a startle reflex, but it passes after several months old. Any type of jerking needs assessment with thorough questioning and I recommend an evaluation by a Neurologist. Video taping the episodes can further assist the Neurologist.

If there are facial characteristics of fetal alc synd in a 6-mo-old but she meets development milestones & growth is good are there concerns?

If there are facial characteristics of fetal alc synd in a 6-mo-old but she meets development milestones & growth is good are there concerns?

Maybe: Obviously you have concerns because of facial features, but these do not have to be from fetal alcohol syndrome.The critical question is whether the infant was indeed exposed to alcohol during development. Any alcohol can be a problem!it is reassuring that milestones and growth are good. Keep close follow-up on these and follow healthy lifestyle choices-good diet once added, no smoking around child. ...Read more
