19GENERALLY PRETTY CHILLED OUT
Newborns have jerky movements. They don’t yet have coordination and so their movement aren’t smooth. If your newborn is agitated, she may be jerking around, trying to move and wriggle, on a regular basis. Even being comforted by mom, lying in your arms, might not be enough to relax her.
It may indicate that your newborn might develop into a happy baby if she’s pretty docile, meaning that she doesn’t wriggle around uncomfortably and isn’t easily agitated. Everything is new and scary – it’s a big new world to a newborn. So, if she’s able to stay pretty relaxed, it’s a sign she’s comfortable about things.
