A few months ago my 8 month old began randomly shaking his head from side to side. Then he would just continue on playing with his toys.His Grandfather assumed it was because of his noise maker machine is always on, so we stopped using it. After that he continued to shake his head randomly. Lately I haven't seen him doing it. So should I worry?
If it is something you are really concerned about, it never hurts to bring it up at his next well check which should be sometime around 9 months. But head shaking/ head banging is considered a normal behavior and a form of self soothing, and it is more common in boys than girls. If you have a copy of what to expect the first year, that book has a section on it.
