Lo keeps punching herself in the head!


When she's having a bottle or when she's tired, i have to pin her arm down! Does anyone elses lo do this or have any ideas why she does it? I feel bad watching her smack herself lol

I took to swaddling my son again because he does this if he is tired, or he pulls his ear/face.
Maybe you could try it. Archie is asleep within 2 mins if he is swaddled.

Mine used to do that too, he eventually stopped, but now he'll sit there and whack himself in the head with toys for fun.

Mine went through a spell at around 6 months of whacking himself with his rainstick rattle on the leg. He would cause himself bruises! It worried me, but Ive only remembered he did it after reading your post, so it can't have gone on for too long. Hope it's the same for you xx

i suppose it could be frustration but she is very calm while she does it? I suppose it will pass eventually like all the other little phases they have x

Randomly, my lo punches his head when he has an ear infection, could this be a possibility?x
