Head butting

I do remember DS1 doing this. And I know he's just testing his limits but I was wondering if any other kids were doing this?

He just walks up to things and head butts them. Or when he's on my knee he either head butts me in the face/chest/nose or if he's facing away he throws himself backwards and head butts me. He really waked himself on a table earlier *sigh*

Aiden did that for a few weeks, but has stopped now. I wasn't so fond of it. DH thought it was hilarious. :roll: But he wasn't as home as much as me to get the receiving end of these as much. Blum 3

No head butting here. My dh used to do it and my mil tells me the same story over and over. I would think that after they really hurt themselves they would stop or grow out of it. My daycare kid used to throw herself back all the time. Drove me nuts..

He will do it in his high chair or against the head board of our bed mainly. He does it with the back of his head right now. I hate seeing it, and I try to put my hand at the back of his head, but he really doesn't hit it hard.

Rowan doesn't head butt (though she occasionally will lean against the wall while sitting and bang her head backward). She does bite herself though, and sometimes pulls her own hair. It's her way of expressing frustration, and it is usually a direct result of not getting her way - like if she wants to get picked up and doesn't get picked up immediately, she'll start to scream and then bite her hand. I think head butting is probably similar - a way of expressing frustration without words. I bet Tobey grows out of it when he is better able to communicate.

Aiden was using his head as a battering ram to knock stuff off, to open doors, to bang into me, etc.

we don't have headbutting issues here just slapping issues. Although he has calmed down a bit with that.
