My baby is now nearly 8 months old and from about 4 months old, he has insisted on hitting his forehead when he is laid down and trying to get to sleep. Sometimes he is just tapping his head so I leave him as it does help him get to sleep but other times, he is hitting himself so hard that I have to stop him or he would hurt himself. He is not angry or upset when he does this and in fact, sometimes he is actually asleep and is just continuing for a little while once he had dropped off. Is this normal? Should I always stop him, even if he is just tapping? Does anyone know what this is all about?
