Self Injurious Behavior

Lucy - posted on 05/15/2016 ( no moms have responded yet )




My grandson is 6 months old on the 17th and he displays self injury when drinking his bottle or eating pablum. When his mommy would breast feed he would lightly tap his face and head at the start. Now he scratches his eyes or rubs them when he eats. He doesn't seem to like to eat. He does have a bit of reflux and the doctor started a low dose of stomach med. He also gets oval and gripe water. He sucks and bites his arm sometimes too. I am worried. He is at the low end of birth weight but high end on height as we are a tall family. Do you think the behavior is because of pain in his belly?
