Dealing with seizures in your child can be a very frightening experience, especially if you do not know what you are dealing with. Believe it or not, baby seizure symptoms can present themselves in a variety of ways. If you are able to keep a close eye on any changes in the movements your child makes of the overall level of vigilance you notice, you may start to be able to tell if there is something wrong. From there, proper diagnosis from a physician will help you to pinpoint what is happening and then you can begin treatment as soon as possible.
With neonatal baby seizure symptoms, or a child that is a month old or younger, you will often notice a seizure that is mild in terms of intensity and also fairly short in duration. Some of these seizures may be so slight in nature that it can be difficult to tell if one is actually happening. Some of the symptoms can include rhythmic jerking of the legs and hands, difficulty with breathing, repetitive chewing and/or sucking or the body tensing up.
