My son Preston likes to punch himself repeatedly in the head while nursing . It's a constant thing now which started about a week ago . Is this normal ? Will this behavior stop soon and what do suggest I do if it is habit breaking ? Thanks !

It's probably a self soothing mechanism. Many kids will twirl their hair (or a lock of mom's hair). One of mine used to plant a foot and sort of rock himself. if he is hitting hard enough to leave a mark, you may want to gently take his hand and hold it in your hand. How old is he?
