    Shaking his head?

    Advertisements
    Carters new habit is shaking his head. He shakes it side to side like hes saying no. Except he does it kind of violently and it freaks me out. I swear hes going to hurt his neck or something.

    Is this a normal thing for babies to do? Ive never seen this before.

    Granted he has a lot of weird habits But this one is just odd. Hes 7 months now.

    My friend's toddler did that with his head for the longest time except it was up and down. Turns out he has autism. I hope this isn't the case for you. Ask your Ped. next time you guys go.

    I remember when my kiddos did this. I would say it is pretty common. But from what I googled, it can also be a sign of an ear infection.

    Matt does that when I try to put him to bed. So it's almost like he is saying no but I don't think he knows that's what it means.

    My niece does this up and down with her head (2 years old). I'm pretty sure she does it because then she hits her head, and cries, and gets attention. SHe's a sneaky little thing

    My daughter started doing that at about 6 or 7 months, and she still does it sometimes at 15 months, lol. If it isn't normal, then I have issues too, I guess, lol!

    ETA: I don't know anything about ear infections though, she's never had one!
