For the past few days my 8 months old daughter has done some jerking while falling asleep.
They look like sleep starts, but she did 15 of them in a row; however, I can make them stop instantly if I wake her up with my voice or by turning the light on.
Do an infantile spasm cluster stop if the baby awakes? I tried to look for this information online, but I couldn't find an answer. It appears that sleep starts and infantile spasms can look similar, so that got me worried.
In any case, we have an EEG scheduled for next Tuesday, and a neuropediatrician appointment on Friday.
