6 day old baby rolls eyes and weird noise

I've just been holding my daughter, and noticed a couple of things that concerned me a bit, I'm wondering if someone can advise me on whether it's normal.

Firstly she seems to keep rolling her eyes into the back of her head. I'm less concerned about this as from reading a few pages via google it appears this can be normal as babies don't have much control over their eyes.

However, occasionally she's also making a strange noise which is hard to explain, almost like a prolonged hiccup or gasping - it's the same noise I tend to make during the night due to my sleep apnia, where I wake up gasping for breath after stopping breathing. This concerns me the most, particularly combined with the rolling eyes.

She seems quite happy, she's currently wide awake and appearing to smile (probably wind ), but even now (i.e. while awake) she occasionally seems to roll her eyes.

Is this something I should go to the doctor about, or is it common? I don't remember either with our other daughter.

I'd appreciate any advice.

My cousins baby did this and he was having seizures. I dont want to scare you but I would talk to your pediatrician about it. My cousin didnt know what was going on. The baby had to be put on daily seizure meds. He would do this several times a day. It was very strange. Again I am not trying to scare you and your child is more than likely fine but I would ask the doctor about it.

Thanks, will get it checked out definitely. We've got an appointment on Monday so will ask them to check her over.

Re: 6 day old baby rolls eyes and weird noise

i too immediately thought of the possible siezure activity too? if you do not obtain any real satisfactory explanations from her ped doc, i WOULD most certainly ask to be referred to an actual pediatric neurologist for more in depth types of testing? the problem with children and siezures or alot of other types of medical issues is since they cannot actually 'tell us' what they are really feeling, testing just IS really much more crucial here in really finding a true dx of any real medical problem? but with infant/childhood types of siezure activity, it would almost HAVE to be actually really occuring at the time of her visit with her ped doc in order to even begin to get and idea of what these "episodes' really are from at all, you know what i mean? a simple scan or brainwave testing in most siezure patients would at least possibly show some levels of abnormal brain activity even without an active siezure occuring. and that just realistically IS why its really important to just even get her to that peds neuro. they just already KNOW what to look for and test on any child with what yours is experiencing here at all? most regular primary and peds docs really are pretty 'basic' in their overall knowledge of ANYTHING that is more rarely seen in our children. this just IS where the specialists play that crucial role.

i do hope you can ge the answers you need here and everything is simply okay with your daughter. but DO see that peds neuro for the very BEST possible evaluation of 'her' and her symptoms from someone really experienced in that particular area. please keep us posted hon, marcia
