    downs syndrome baby with sleep problems

    downs syndrome baby with sleep problems (6 weeks old)! Waking several times during night eyes wide open, arms outstretched and shaking. What could be cause for this?

    I'd have the baby evaluated for Infantile Spasms, just in case. Kids with DS are at greater risk of seizure activity.

    Good luck!
