There is nothing to fear if the baby develops spasms or convulsions. But if proper concern is not exerted at the earliest it may lead to deadly consequences. It is never the same case for the babies and elder children when it comes to the subject of spasms. The symptoms of spasms are quite dissimilar in the case of babies. For instance, the eye balls of the baby may turn up and it will begin giving vigorous shakes with its arms and legs. This is particularly because of the asymmetrical tensing of muscles. The reasons for spasms or convulsions in a new born baby can be ascribed to an injury in its head portion during the process of delivery.
