Is it normal for my 9 month old to be hitting his head all the time?

It is pretty normal.. I've heard about it and seen it a lot through mom's groups... Beware of giving your child attention when he's doing it - it seems they find it entertaining if you freak out about it...
Perhaps just redirecting to another activity when he's exploring that way. :)

I agree with Magen, I would check with your doctor. Most children do hit their heads once they realize they make noise, but it isnt constant, and normally stop once they hit it to hard and hurt themselves. If its a constant thing I would really talk to your doctor.

You should probably talk to his doctor about this. Is he hurting himself or is it just tapping? Does he do it when hes upset or frustrated? These are things your doctor will want to know. Don't wait you don't want him to hurt himself.
