I need advice and reassaurance, I don’t know if I am being the cray worry Mom.
DS is 4 months old, about a month ago I started noticing that he would get stiff and back arch with some really jerky hand movements and sometimes get a “look” on his face. I talked to my Dr about it and he said the back arching is due to his reflux, though he has been on meds since he was 4 weeks old so not sure how much I believed that.
A few days later, I noticed he would get fussy and cry when these “spells” would happen. He would be all smiles and laughing and then just kind of spaz. So I took him back into the Dr with a video of it. Dr didn’t want to look at video, said he was fine.
I was super upset, not only with my Dr but my DH as he kept dismissing it and thinks it’s totally normal and put down my concerns in front of the Dr.
I worked myself into such a tizzy the following week that I made an apt again and insited that the Dr look at the video. He looked at 2 secs of it and again said he is fine. I said you didn’t get to the part that concerns me and he said he didn’t need.
Now 2 weeks later I feel hopeless, I have tried talking to DH about it but he thinks I am overreacting and that our son is fine. I show him the video’s and laughs. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know if I am just in a fit of worry right now to be thinking rationally and maybe I am overreacting because I have spent hours on the web freaking myself out.
I don’t know if me posting the video is going to work, I will try. But the main one I can’t show because DS is fully nakey.
IDK, anyones thoughts, anyone have experience with something like this? Do these movements sound normal? Other than what I explained, he is doing perfect, thriving, growing.
Here is a link of what I took today
