Hi Tshepy

It is probable that there is nothing wrong at all with your baby, and this may be normal behaviour. There is some evidence that very active children may later on develop ADHD, but that is something for the future. If there is no other behaviour while he is awake that concerns you I would advise to watch and see how this develops. If there is other behaviour that does concern you I would suggest you see your local GP who could refer you on to a nuerologist if necessary.
