  • thats funny cuz my ten month old has done that since she could sit up. She used to suck her thumb (now a binky) and rock back and forth, I believe its fine. It is probably just like adults tap their foot. I think they're just rocking unconsciously, just as if we were tryin to sooth them, we'd rock back and forth or side to side right?

  • I would consider that VERY normal. Most 3 month olds start sitting up on there own about this time. And rocking back and forth is a plus! Its his way of comforting hisself, its soothing to him.
