Worries

Ok so being a mom when your child does something not normal it is very startling and very scary. Wed. at Zeke's 1:00 feeding I was holding him in my arms and feeding him his bottle. He started to fall asleep, which he sometimes does. Thinking I could get him to eat more if I let him sleep for about 15 minutes I let him. Well a few seconds later he started shaking. His head and his arms where just shaking. This lasted 10 to 15 seconds. Let me tell you that was the scarriest 10 to 15 seconds of my life. So crying I call the doctor but being Wed. my doctors office closes early so I get a hold of the on call nurse, I tell her what happened. She calls Dr. Marsh and then calls me back saying not to worry about it, it doesnt sound like anything more than just a baby with a immature nervous system but if he does it again let them know. Soo today about 10:30 I was holding him to get him to go to sleep for him morning nap when he did it again. Once again right after he falls asleep and shakes for 10 to 15 seconds. After it happens he is just fine, but as for me I am a wreck. So I am going to be taking him in on Monday to have him checked out. I found a couple of sites on the internet that other mothers had the exact same thing happen to them and thier doctors said it was due to an immature nervous system. So I am praying that that is all that it is. Im really scared and very nervous so just keep me in your prayers! It is the worse thing in the world to be holding your precious little baby and have him shaking and there is nothing you can do about it and you have no clue why it is happening!
