  • I'm just wondering how they could do it repeatedly on accident??? It might be a stimulation thing, soothing thing?

  • He has a rattle that he loves to shake over and over and will hit his face but then I guess one hit is harder than the others and it makes him cry. I dunno why or what it is?!?!

  • Is it intentional or accidental? When my son was much smaller, like 5-6 months, he would shake a toy and shake it too hard by accident and whack himself in the face. Once or twice he cried as a result of this. Take those toys away if he keeps harming himself with it until he gains better control over himself.

  • My son would always whack himself. He actually started flinching when he was playing because he knew he would hit himself in the head.
