Sometimes shake his head side to side? He seems like he is doing it for fun because he is usually laughing and smiling when he does it. I am freaking out. Please help!

My 17 month old does it all the time. It's a really fun game for them :) Don't worry about it, totally normal.

Sure. It feels cool and makes the world go all dizzy. No different than when kids spin in circles to make themselves dizzy. My sister and I use to think it was fun to throw our bodies back hard against the seat while in the car and say "Oh Oh! Speghetti-Ohs!"

As long as he is not exhibiting any other 'concerning' behaviours such as developmental delays, social delays, or physical delays... I'm sure it's completely normal.
