Shaking A Baby
My stepmom was rocking my 8 month old baby in her car seat kind of vigorously. Baby was laughing. It worries me.Could that cause shaken baby syndrome?
She should be fine: but you are right to be careful with a baby. It does not take too much to hurt a baby's brain but it would be obvious. Given that she was laughing and I assume she is fine now.....she will be OK. ...Read more

Query spasmus nutans: "Nodding spasms" is a rare condition that includes nystagmus, titubation, and torticollis (head tilt).

When is a baby girl expected to walk?My baby is 8 months and she takes steps really well but holding onto a couch or a chair....
6 months: Younger babies normally do not drink water. They just drink breast milk or formula when they get thirsty. Water is a thinner liquid than milk, so babies sometimes have trouble drinking water (but they drink milk just fine). With older babies that are already on solid foods, they can try a bit of water sometimes during mealtimes. If a baby likes breast milk or formula, plain water isn't needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dreams: She is likely just dreaming, causing her to twitch which is the most common cause of twitching like this. I know you're probably worried if she's having seizures or something more serious like that. There's an entity called Infantile Spasms but she doesn't quite fit the criteria for that either.

Mrs is 89 after eating breakfast while cleaning up she gets a tremble feeling it also feels like a shiver and a feel of falling backwards?
Symptoms after meals: Symptoms after eating can sometimes be brought on by the workload on the heart caused by the extra blood flow needed for digestion. It's also possible that symptoms are brought on by standing (lowering of blood pressure on standing). Taking medications first thing after getting up can cause symptoms that begin shortly after breakfast too. Best to talk to your doctor and get blood pressure checked. :). ...Read more
