My baby is two days old and he seems to be shivering and random times. I know that babies don't shiver to keep warm, should I be concerned?

In brief: Swaddling may help

A very young baby can loses heat easily and shiver. Newborns also have normal shivering reflexes especially when they are placed for diaper change .
All thing being equal if baby feeds well is alert try swaddling for a bit
