    Default hitting head against wall

    Not me, DS is doing this. I don't know what to make of it, sometimes he'd topple as he's sitting and hit the wall (softly). Then he'd laugh and start hitting his head against wall.

    Sometimes he also slaps himself in the head quite hard for no reason.

    Default hitting head against wall

    How old is ur DS catbox? My DD would
    Smack herself in the head when she was 15/16 months old. On advice from here we ignored it completely, had to almost look through her when she did it. And now at 17months she has stopped, I can't remember when she last did it.
    It would be when she was tired, aggravated, bored. Whenever she was trying to communicate but didn't have the skills to do so.
    Hope that helps comfort u a bit?

    I agree with PPer .. my respond would depend greatly on how old your DS is ..

    my son did it for a very short while - till one day he did it hard and actually hurt himself .. he never did it again ..

    kids are odd sometimes..

    I can't remember exactly the age, maybe 18monthish Jasper would head butt things, give himself a nice red circle on his forehead... we didn't make a fuss unless he actually hurt himself and he stopped doing it pretty quickly.

    I think sometimes they are just drying to fully experiment and understand what they can do with their bodies.

    though at 3.5 years he sometimes purposefully falls over and sometimes thumps pretty hard. I think he's doing it for comedy value. (falling down = funny)

    DS now 18mths has finally stopped! Yay!! Also took advice from mums here- we ignored sometimes cuddled if it hurt and explained not to but he did it for probably a good 3mths- he is persistent 😜
