I am a bit worried about that, because he started doing that after his MMR and does it several times a day, especially when he is tired or is throwing a tantrum. Just wondered if anyone else is experiencing this and how do you react. Do you tell them not to do it, do you ignore it or do you think I should start to get worried that it's something to do with autism?
Not had personal experience Booklover, but have heard that many toddlers go through this phase - after all, it's a guaranteed attention-getter!
I watched a Baby Whisperer programme where they dealt with a little boy about the age of yours who did this. They had wooden floors everywhere too - ouch. They got a big floor cushion, and everytime he started headbanging they put him on the cushion, without giving him any other attention (so his tantrum wasn't attracting attention IYSWIM). After a few days they had broken this cycle of behaviour. HTH.
