Question: My baby seems to move all the time. Is that normal?
Answer: Every baby is very different when it comes to fetal movement. Some will seem to be very quiet, while others are very active. Try to see your baby's movements as a sign of well-being. As long as you are getting enough movements a day, I wouldn't be concerned with the movement that seems to be frequent. Ask your practitioner if you are really concerned.

Frequent movements by your baby is not a sign of attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
