Constantly moving Arms??

My DS is always moving his arms when he's awake! We took a video of him last night and for 5 minutes solid he was using/moving his arms around. Is this normal? I am just wondering if he's trying to tell me something?? Paranoid new mom here...

Re: Constantly moving Arms??

Hi Mommie-2-B

I don't think you're being paranoid, you're just being a normal mum! My DD is also always on the move. I think it's perfectly normal, in fact my child development book said that from about 3 -4 months babys are 'perpetual motion machines'!

Re: Constantly moving Arms??

He's not even 2 weeks old yet!! I mean, this baby is REALLY active when he's awake!!!! But when he's put down to sleep, he sleeps! He doesn't cry unless I'm changing him!! That's it. He's such a good boy and a true blessing.

Re: Constantly moving Arms??

Well that sounds just like my DS who is now 4 weeks old. When he's awake his arms and legs are constantly moving, he likes to lay on the floor and just kick his arms and legs. He also doesnt cry unless he's not feeling well, we're battling constipation with him right now so he'll cry now when he's constipated otherwise, he only grunts a little bit when he wakes up from sleeping which means hey mom i'm awake feed me some more!!

Mommie-2B, my son does the same. The way I was told is that its their nerves moving their arms and legs. They don't have much control that early on. My baby was so active and is still (he's 2 months).

Re: Constantly moving Arms??

Ds has never stopped moving. I joke that from the first time i felt him move at 14weeks he hasn't stopped. But actually, that's pretty true! He wiggled in the bassinet thing at the hosptial, and buy three weeks, his legs and arms were going all the time. And now at 7 months he actualy never stops, he even moves in his sleep!
I don't think you are paranoid either, I have gotten worried over alot of stuff too, alot of really really crazy, lol.

Re: Constantly moving Arms??

My son made 4 months today and he is doing the same thing. I can't wait till he gets more coordinated and can start grabing things. He is not doing that yet. I would't worry about the arm and leg movements, if they weren't moving much at all then I would worry.
