Hi, I am a 28 yr old mom who has a 4 month old daughter, Ashleigh. When shes in her bouncy seat her legs are always moving!! Her arms move alot too. I mentioned to her doctor a few days ago that she feels awfully tight (her muscles). Even when the nurse went to measure her she said "jeez is this baby strong, i can't even staraighten out her leg" When I did mention the tightness in her legs to the doc he went through a series of pulling her legs apart, pushing them up, pulling them down etc...and he did the same with her arms. He told me she feels a little tight but nothing to worry about. But before he even did the series of tests he mentioned cerebral palsy. After he did the tests he told me not to worry but of course I can't stop thinking that maybe she does have it. What are the signs of CP and can you tell in a baby this young?? if anyone could e-mail me to help put my mind at ease that would be great! Thanks alot

Stacey
