Q.

Hitting head

My daughter is 16 months old and she keeps hitting her head with her hands, can you tell me why?

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

This appears to be a form of head banging which is usually an attention seeking behaviour. Give her lots of love and make sure she feels safe and secure. Gradually this behaviour will fade away.If it persists have her checked by your paediatrician.

When my son was doing that it turned out he had an ear infection.
