My daughter shakes her head

I'm sure she doesn't know the meaning just yet and I've had the doctor check her ears for ear infections. She had a check up today and her ears were fine too. Anyone else's kid make a hobby of the head shake at 8-9 months?

My daughter (2 months) also shakes her head no when she doesnt want something... weird how they instinctively know to do that...

My son is 7 months and anytime he is done with a bottle or full of food etc he will shake his head just to let me know he has had enough. If I try to give him a toy or something he does not want he will do the same thing. That is their way of letting us know. I don't think you have anything to worry about. I checked with my dr too about ear infections and that is what he told me

yes my son shakes his head too, hes 14 months now but was doing it at that age too, although not so much now, if he does it now hes laughs and thinks its funny.
