Q.

Tapping

Hi doc

Just want your opionion on the following:

My baby (5 months old) is constantly tapping his arm.
Is this normal?
Should I take him to the paediatrician to have it checked out?
He will be going for his 6 months check up in January.

Paediatrician

This may be quite normal, but it is rather unusual for a baby to do this. You should ask your paediatrician to see your baby.
