My son is 11 months old and he has gotten into the habit of banging his head on the couch or the back of his car seat while he is sitting in the car and it scares me is this normal for his age

The reason I ask is my son also did the same and at about 2 years old he was diagnosed with Autism. If you are concerned se your local doctor just to be sure.

my son does this aswell - i don't know if its normal or not but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with my son. He is 16 months old now & has been doing it for 4 or 5 months now

My son does this too, sometimes its when he is having a tantrum but sometimes he just does it and laughs.I'm not worried about it as he knows he is doing it and he now knows it gets a reaction from me too so he will probably keep doing it.It might be the same with your child, he sees that you react to it so he will keep doing it!
