Hi DS2 is 9 months old and sometimes when I am giving him a bottle and getting him down for a nap or to sleep for the night he hits himself on the head, DH thinks he is just trying to keep himself awake and I wonder if he is right or he is having referred pain from teething or both. The Dr didn't seem concerned, he is a very happy baby and doesn't seem behind in any milestones but I just don't know what to do about the hitting.

My guy did this and has grown out of it (he now plays with his ears and hair instead!). I tried holding his hand while feeding so he couldn't do it, but if he really wanted to there wasn't much I could do. I also tried telling him to be gentle but think he was a bit too little to get it.
Not sure why they do it but I would worry.

my ds was a head whacker. When he was a tiny baby he used to shake his head when he was falling asleep. when he got older he used to hit his head on the side of his cot or on a wall, not hard, just repetitivley. It was disturbing to watch and I did take him to a doctor who assured me that there was nothing wrong with him and he would grow out of it..... which he did.

My Did does this, and I realised it is her trying to suck her thumb while feeding if she is tired. It usually ends up in her ear... hahaha
I've found that if I put my hand near the top of the great she'all grab my finger. It doesn't work if I try to make her hold my finger though.
