Rapid Eye Movement In Babies
My four month old baby son seems to have rapid eye movement at different times during the day. Is that normal. It's not very fast movement either.
Rapid eye movements may be entirely normal in infants HOWEVER THIS is the kind of observation your Pediatrician will NOT be annoyed about if you question him/her......suggest you check this out....
Hope this is helpful

Flutter: Fluttering eye movements may be an oscillopsia or blepharospasm.
