I think the movements your son is making are perfectly normal. My son used to do the same thing especially when he was excited. He is now 7.5 months old and has more control.

I am sorry that your doctor wouldn’t at least hear you out. It might be worth getting a second opinion to get rid of any worries. 

By The Way, Your son is adorable!

I’m no expert, but I think those…episodes? are just a couple moments of him losing focus/getting bored/short baby attention span. He is adorable though! But I’m also a big believer in mommy’s instincts, so I think if you want a 2nd opinion for peace of mind, do it! I do think it’s a little rude that your dr. won’t even watch quick to allay your fears.

@mrsgg21:  you are very welcome! I definitely understand being worried! It’s normal when you’re a mom! 🙂

also wanted to tell you that there are a lot of Bees over at hellobee.com. It’s baby/mommy centered.

TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS. If YOU as his mother think something is off, or you’re seeing something that doesn’t seem right to you, get a second, third, fourth opinion until you are satisfied enough that your fears are alleviated. I took my daughter to 3 different doctors who all told me she had a cold when she was 6 months old, turns out she had pneumonia and was immediately treated once I took her to the ER and insisted on a test being done. Never feel paranoid or weird about needing more information.

idk man… Im not a mom but I do not think thats normal. It seems like its a complete change in those few seconds, and its the same movements and blank face. I dont mean to worry you but Ive never seen a baby do that.

Change doctors, honestly. He should not be this dissmissive of your worries.

@mrsgg21:  I think he looks fine. When DS was little he was extremely active and would always be moving some part of his body. He would jurk around like crazy. He is now 3.5 and is a WILD man 🙂 He is very very busy. I think little boys are just more active even as babies. Don’t worry yourself he seems completely healthy just an active little boy.

I checked out the video and I must say he’s HANDSOME!  I’m not an expert or a mother (I’ve been around babies all my life), but your DS seems to be very active!  =)  I don’t see anything too alarming.  I suggest getting a second/third opinion just to put your mind at ease.  No doctor should dismiss you so quickly to begin with.

I don’t see anything concerning about that video.  Just a very active, happy, handsome baby.
