Hi, I stumbled across your Blog because I am trying to figure out what is wrong with my daughter. she had a MRI come back neg,yet is having what I believe to be Spasms. She is 5.5 Months and She does not have them every day. My Husband is fighting with me telling me that our 2 boys behaved this way and that it is Normal. She also was Born with a Post Wine stain. Super confused that these Spasms are the start of Something more. Your Children are Gorgeous BTW. Any advise will be helpful.
Thank you,
