The fact that your UI shifts suggests that the some static notifications are displayed inside a container with no height. I recommend using a fixed height container for the notification messages, just like in this demo:
Alternatively, you can use min and/or max height styles for the container.
On the other hand, popup notification messages have no influence on the remaining page content, so you can choose this approach too.
