Q.

NERVOUSNESS &  1 YEAR OLD

Hi Doc,

My son is 1 year, 1 month old. When he was a few months old, I noticed if anyone made a loud noise, he would get a fright but that has seemed to have gone away. I now notice sometimes when he wakes up, he is bitting his finger &  is somewhat shaky &  nervous - is this something to worry about? I was under alot of stress while I was pregnant.

Please help me,
Thanking you
Charlene

This is not anything to do with your pregnancy. Your baby's behaviour can be perfectly normal.Does he attend a creche?is he on any medicine which may cause this as a suide effect?If there is nothing obvious that is causing your baby to be a bit nervous then his behaviour is probably normal.
