Hi all,
My 18 month ds keeps head butting anything the floor, the sofa, cushions, chairs oh and us. I have no idea why and he ends up with bruises because of this. It's slightly worrying as he can really hurt himself.

He is teething, not sure if that makes a difference.

Thanks for all ur help xx

My DD does this in temper. I thought she'd stop when she learnt it hurt but she's 2 and still doing it!

My DS is 18 months and headbutts things and us too! If he head butts things, I let him get on with it. I have heard its soothing for them (very strange) he does it in a tantrum sometimes but he also does it when he is calm sometimes.

If he does it to me I say no loudly, and look very dissapointed. Ignoring him sometimes works too, depends how much it hurt.
