    I might be worrying unnecessarily but Ryan keeps doing this...

    http://www.onetruemedia.com/shared?p=47 ... m=text_url

    (you'll have to wait a bit to see what i mean but the whole video is only 1 minute - he starts doing it from about 30secs onwards and a big one at 46secs)

    He keeps arching his back and making grunting noises. Is this ok or is he in pain/wind? He always does it :? don't know if I should be worried? He seems frustrated somehow but I don't understand what he's trying to do...

    To be honest it doesnt look like he is distressed in any way and it seems like he just likes to push on his feet :think:

    Ryan looks like he's trying to move bless him, he's looking back to see where he may end up if only his feet and legs would let him get there :D He's so cute, he looks fine, and strong and just very active, he's lovely :hug: very best wishes :hug:

    Isaac sometimes does this before going to sleep, but he gets frustrated with it, I have to hold his head or he likes to snuggle under something :think: I've heard babies like pressure on their heads, as it reminds them of being in the womb.

    Lola does the same thing if she's on her changing mat i think she's trying to push herself up but can't becaause of the padded bit. If i move her down to the bottom of the changing mat she's fine untill she get's back to the top again :D

    Evan did this all the time, i used to worry as well cuz back arching can be one of the signs of meningitis. Your little one looks fine. I would say this is completely normal.

    Jake does it too, he has from a really early age. I think he just wants to move about. If he hasnt already he will probably start what me and OH refer to as moonwalking where he moves himself about by lying on his back and pushing his feet to slide forward. We had to stop putting Jake in the feet to foot position in the cot as he would just slide to the top of the cot and out from under his blankets.
