He only started this today and he hits his head with both hands, am worried and I don't understand why he's doing it shock

Probably nothing, might be worth getting his ears checked though, just in case he has an infection that is making his head sore.

Thanks for your reply SharkyandGeorge, ds had earache a couple of weeks ago when he had a cold and kept putting his head to one side whilst screaming. He hasn't done this since, but do you think that has something to do with it? It's quite upsetting to watch sad

To be honest i really have no idea but would be the first thing I would think of getting checked if my 7 month old started doing it.

I don't know how likely it is to be the cause or what else it could be if it isn't.

Maybe he is just doing it because it's a funny sensation for him or he likes the noise that it makes.
