Why does my newborn shake?

HI, I have a one month old baby boy, he sometimes shakes his head , hand, or foot. This will happen only when his asleep it looks like a twitch. It does not last more than one or two seconds. I have already ask the doctor as well I asked the nurses when he was born and said most babies to this because their nervous system is still immature. Can you please tell me what you think it might be. Anyone who might have experience something like this thank you.

Dear Doctor, My son is 60 days old and he is crying continuously for the past 3 days without sleep.Because my wife was not producing more milk, we used NAN Pro1 since 22nd day(min 1 feed(30ml) per day and max 2/3 feeds per day)We went to a doctor nearby and the doctor had prescribed the following The baby is crying due to a gastric discomfort.Hence he had asked to immediately stop NAN Pro1 and continue to do breast feeding. He had prescribed crocin drops and after consuming the baby would sleep in 5 minutes. Also, he had suggested Nasal spray incase there is any choking in the baby s nose. We administered crocin drops last night, then the baby slept for 2 hrs.After then, the baby is still crying. Can you please suggest considering the above mentioned scenario. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
