Why is my son banging his head?

Why is my son banging his head? My 15 month old son keeps banging his head. He will go up to something and bang his head against it eg wall, cupboard, floor, this morning was a banging a toy, so it hurts and he cries. Lately it has been banging his head on the floor over and over. Keep asking him to stop as it is going to hurt him as he starts to get upset but keeps doing it. Is this just a phase?

    it is not a stage I am familiar with so I would discuss with the GP in case there is a medical reason for this

    I would be worried myself – I’d advise just speaking to your doctor.

    Might be that he has an ear infection or headache, my daughter does that and we think she might have a headache and we give her some baby neurofen and within 20 minutes she stops doing it and so each time she does it we give her the medicine.

    I have seen this before, but I think it is just a phase, hope it does not last long for you.

    it s just a phase and he isn’t hurting himself or he would stop. just ignore him when he does it and leave the room and he will probably cease

    Discuss this with your gp but I am sure it is a phase. One of mine did this for a while too

    I would take him to your GP just to rule out any real problems.
    If the GP says all is fine then hopefully he will grow out of it and all will be well.
