    Default 2 year old shaky hands sometimes

    Iíd really appreciate some advice and hopefully some reassurance.
    I sometimes notice that my 2 year old son hands shake very slightly when heís eating or holding something. I noticed it first 6 months ago and since then have been so aware of it, I am always looking for it and it really scares me when I see it. I hadnít noticed it for ages but today he had a temperature and I noticed it again and now Iím back watching for it constantly.
    He doesnít do it always, just there he had dinner and was holding his fork and it was totally steady. But after dinner I noticed it once when he was holding something. I asked him to hold his hand out with the thing he was holding in it and then There was no shaje at all.
    Iím hoping that itís jusy part of his fine motor skills developing and heíll grow out of it but I am scared it could be something serious.
    I am a very anxious mum and anxiety often gets the better of me.
    Has Anyoneís baby donw this?
    Iíd love to hear from you
    Thank you

    I would ask the pediatrician for a referral to a pediatric neurologist, just to look into it. That's the best way to get reassurance if it's nothing to worry about.

    Definitely get it checked. Thereís a familial tremor that runs in my family. I donít have it, and my children donít seem to have it, but my mother, sister, and young cousin all do to varying degrees. Itís annoying but in no way health threatening. It could be something like that, but thereís no way to know unless you investigate.

    Get a video of it if you can, will help so much when talking to the ped or neurologist.
