    Default My baby hurts herself when I say, 'No'.

    My baby slaps, punches, her head when we say, 'NO'.

    Why is she doing this?
    We only say, 'NO', when she is running near a cupboard and we don't want her to hurt herself we try and tell her to stay away so she won't go near it, or if she goes to grab a glass off the table I'll say, "NO". She always stops straight away and when we first started using the NO technique she would respond with a bashful look and make a sad whimpering sound. But now she's turned it into an angry whimpering sound a long with a punch to her own head.
    Sometimes she'll shake her head repeatedly which she learnt from me no doubt, but I have never slapped/hit my baby nor do I slap my dogs.

    I'm just at a lost, no idea where she's picked this up. Maybe she picked it up from when we've been out shopping and we've noticed another family using slap method but could she be using it as a trick, maybe she thinks we're going to feel sorry for her and give her attention which is exactly what we're doing. LOL
    Gosh she's got us wrapped around her little finger, Any advice?

    Possibly, it's an immediate response, whenever she see's that she's in trouble she does it.
    Just a big tap to the head and she has a bit of a whinge then continues doing what we told her to not do and then she'll hit herself again when we say No.

    She is at an age where she wants to communicate more than she can, some kids can find it very frustrating. I know when I am frustrated all I want to do is break something!

    Oh, Ruby used to head butt the floor when getting in trouble at that age.

    That makes a lot of sense.
    Oh and me too, I usually bottle it up then at the end of the week grab a pillow and scream.

    Yeah its frustration so maybe try explaining to her why you are saying no. She may still only be little & not totally understand but she may suprise you. Also distract her from the behaviour may also help to stop it.

    Boof used to be a head butt'er in cases like this & i found ignoring the behaviour as long as he was safe was the best thing to do.

    Poor mummy, poor bubby

    I found that being in a house with hardwood floors instead of carpet fixed the head butting problem right up
