Dear friend,I am telling you if a baby is born with low brth weight he or she needs a little more time to cope with physiological adversity in the outer in your grand daughter's case she is physiologically weak.there can be various reason behind twitching of a small child, like glucose level fall in blood .so you need to take her to a child specialist for a check-up of her blood and developmental profile.if the report comes to you as normal then you don't need to worry much about her health.thank you.
