If it is that severe, I would probably check with her pediatrician. If it's to the point of leaving physical marks, and esp. to the point of lasting upwards of six hours, then it could be indicative of something more serious going on. Hope that's of some help to you-- they may refer her to a behavioral specialist, or they may think it's just a phase, idk.

I researched this awhile back because my now 16 month old was constantly doing it! From what I found, it shows that they are highly intelligent and very frustrated due to language barriers (because they don't have the vocabulary we do, but know what they want to say). Also, it said to just let them do it and ignore them when they do--they will only do it until it starts to hurt, not until it does hurt. They have their limits, too! lol. My son still does it some, but not to the extent that he was. It took a couple good months of ignoring him for it to stop. Good luck!
