Sometimes my daughter stares into space for about a minute, not really looking at anything and than snaps out of it. Is that a type of seizure, should I be worried? She is on phenobarbitol for her seizures. She is 7 weeks old.
I'm not totally sure if its a seizure or not--but i know babies do stare off into space a lot so I would think it probably isn't especially if shes already on meds to help control them! hope this helps relax you a bit... I know how hard it can be to try to not worry all day long and analyze every little things your sweet little angel does these days!
from what i remember, a seizure looks more like a silent hiccup with or without movement on the arm and leg probably on one side. if she is starring into space, maybe she is just looking around trying to discover new things... she is such a cutie !
