    5 month old baby who shakes her head around sometimes, kinda bothers me

    I hope I can describe this so you understand what I'm talking about. The other night my baby who is just 5 months old now, was sitting in her little bouncy seat in the kitchen while I cooked dinner. All the sudden she started moving her head side to side and kind of letting her eyes go while she did it. She did it twice. Then she was fine. I mean she seems fine so I don't know if she was just doing it or if maybe something isn't right. I don't know it weirded me out a little because when she did it, it just seemed off. She sort of does something like that when she's tired or falling asleep but I don't feel like she was either of those. Any advice or anyone have something similar like this happen?

    Hi Mrg2009!

    I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are describing. However, I think a call to your doctors office would be entirely appropriate!

    I would also make a diary of when it occurs - time of day, what she was doing, etc. And if you're able to predict when it happens, and grab a video with your phone to show the pediatrician, even better.

    Good luck and please check back in!
