Normal?

So my 7mo has started this thing where he shakes his head (like hes saying no) repeatedly. Especially when hes in his car seat, crib, etc. This is my first baby so I dont know, is this normal? He does it alot. Its also causing a bald spot in the back of his head.

  • my dd did it too... I thought it was normal! like she had an itch where she was balding... it drove my hubby crazy!!! But she seems fine!! It stopped when she started being able to sit up by herself and crawling and such. The bald spot grew out! I thought it was normal...

  • He can sit it and crawl. He does it when his head is against something (ie crib, carseat). Does anyone know why babies do this?
