Why Does My Newborn Baby Twitch While Sleeping?

Answer

If you are wondering why your baby appears to twitch while sleeping, relax, it's nothing to worry about. Everyone does it as they dream, even animals like cats, dogs and horses. It's just the natural reaction of the nerves responding to something in the dream state. This does not mean they have a medical condition. The only time you should worry is if it happens constantly and triggers seizures or convulsions.
