Most of us assume that twitching is a sign of responding to dreams, but that is
not the case. According to research, twitching is an indication of development
of limbs and motor skills among babies. If the baby is twitching in sleep, it
means the brain is sending information to other parts of the body. This helps
babies to understand how to use their bodies when they are awake. Twitches in
hands and wrists indicate that the child will now be able to start reaching out
to things around them.
