    Since our daughter was around 6 months old she's been doing this strange thing where she lies down on the floor belly-down and crosses one leg over the other in a sort of stretching motion. She is staring into space and does this until she's done - about 5-10 seconds. If I try to interrupt, she gets angry. Sometimes she has to stop playing to do it and lately she's been doing it more and more which concerns me now that she's 2. Should this be cause for concern? What do you think it might be?

    Sometimes kids do things that we just can't explain. I wouldnt think the worst and consider this being a type of seizure because typically, you wouldn't be able to get a response from her if she was seizing. More than anything, its probably a comfort thing that she has learned to do. She might had even done that in the womb.
