    The response of neonatal tremor to a suckling stimulation test was investigated in 102 healthy neonates born at full term. In 84 the tremor resolved immediately; none had hypocalcaemia and only one had mild hypoglycemia. Eighteen in whom the tremor continued had either hypocalcaemia (n = 13) or hypoglycaemia (n = 5).
