firmly tell him no! the head banging if hes doing it to himself like on the floor just dont pay attention to it as long as hes not actually hurting himself he will stop when you dont pay attention to it babys do that as a stress release and once they dont get the attention they tend to stop .. but if hes head banging you then when he goes to do it stop him if you can and tell him no that hurts mommy when you do that or if he does do it tell him no that hurts mommy .. always tell them somthing hurts if they are hurting you its a phase .. i know thats not what you wanna hear but my daughter when through it about the same age and alot of other kids i know did to she got out it fast once we told her it hurt same with the biting
