Why does my baby engage in headbanging?

Is something wrong with him?


Answer by  DrColbath (103)

Headbanging can be a self-soothing behavior or a means of attention seeking. A large proportion of toddlers will headbang at some point in time, but most outgrow it.

This is fairly common and nothing is wrong with him. Some babies perform headbanging because they may be frustrated, experiencing pain or simply wanting your attention.

Many young children, babies and todddlers, will do this as a sign of furstration. It can be a sign of sensory issues as well as aspergers or autisim. Watch for other signs and speak with your doctor to rule out anything serious. Also make sure you try and distract him when he does these activities.

No, there is nothing wrong with him. He could be learning how to hold his head up on his own. It looks like headbanging when they do this.
