Seizures may describe frequent jitteriness lasting seconds or mild fits that cause the limbs to twitch.

These may do little more than startle the baby, occasionally causing crying, and tend to happen more often when the child is going into or coming out of sleep.

They are called myoclonic jerks and are caused by an excess of electrical activity in the brain.
