Finger’s crossed this is a normal part of development, although it is starting to worry me a bit!

My little boy is 2 at the November. Speech isn’t completely brilliant which may explain this new ‘phase’ he’s going through.

In the past couple of weeks he’s taken to banging his head against things. Usually it’s his pram or could be the table when we sit down for dinner. It’s not hard enough to cause bruising but every now and then he does say ouch and hold his head. No real trigger to it, doesn’t seem to be a when he’s tired or hungry for example.

Has anyone got any experience of this and shed any light on it? We’ve been telling him no and putting our hand under his head when he starts but I really don’t want him to hurt himself!

My little girl use to do it all the time in temper, I'm talking on tile floors and everything.. I use to either leave her to it- I figured she'll soon learn when your head gets sore or I use to move her to a carpet and let her strop it out... Needless to say she doesn't do it anymore!
