Hi can I get a private post please?
My little boy is 19months. He has done this thing where he bangs his head/head butts things and he’s done it since he’s been about 8 months old. It’s not because he is bored or wanting attention I really don’t know why he does it, he does it when lying in bed he will bang his head of the wall, he does it in the bath, he will stop whilst playing and run over and head but the stair gate or radiator? I need to constantly move him away from whatever he is banging his head on and tell him no that he can’t do it. He’s eve done it whilst we have been out for lunch he’s leaned over in his highchair and head butted the table. I’ve mentioned it to my hv a couple of times before as sometimes he will leave a small red mark or bruise on his head and it worries me. Because it must hurt but he keeps doing it. They say it’s a phase and he will grow out of it…. has or does anyone else’s little ones do this 🙈 I don’t know if I’m being paranoid or should I mention it again to hv or maybe even take him to the Drs about it? Thanks in advance x
