Tremors in infants

My baby boy is now 9 months old. A few days back I noticed his lower jaw quivering when he was feeding from bottle. It is not continuous, only in the time of relaxing after sucking. It is not seen otherwise. Is this normal. He also shows jerking movements while in sleep.

When my 1 month old went in for his 2 week check up the doctor told me that quivering is completely normal. She didn't say why exactly though. Just a call to the pedi and I'm sure they'll explain. This should help also: http://www.parksidepediatrics.com/eResources/Newborn/AppearanceandBehavior/tabid/123/Default.aspx

visit ur nearest audiologist and go through Brain Stem Response testings to see whether its a cranial nerve impairment or not coz such symptoms may be sometimes due to some cranial nerve disfunctioning.

That is totally normal. Both my children did the same thing.
