5D iv single point spot focus jumping around

Hi, I just got a brand spanking new Canon 5d iv and I'm having an issue with the focus system. I am a newborn photographer and sometimes when I am shooting over the top of the baby looking down my manually selected focus point moves on its own! It's driving me nuts! One minute it is where i set it the next it has jumped to some completely random focus point!

I have the settings set for

Case 1

single point AF

one shot

Selectable autofocus points cross type

Orientation linked AF points separate point only

....and all the other stuff is as it comes.

The only thing I can think is happening is that the camera is getting confused and is mixing up my points thinking it is vertical/horizontal but as far as i can see its random and never the same focus points.

Has this happened to anyone else? any help would be greatly appreciated!
