  • Just make sure to move things out of his way. My son LOVES to spin around. He will even sit on the floor and spin around. LOL It makes him look like a little monkey the way he does it-leans forward to his hands and then spins and sits again, kind of hard to explain it, but it's too cute. Just enjoy it and keep your little one safe!

  • no. My older son is 5 and he still walks in circles for "no reason" lol

    Typically, they like the sensation of being dizzy.

  • Um, no. Does everyone think that these type of things could be a potential sign of some disorder?

  • No its how they make their eyes develope. Sounds like his is doing it a little early, but that's ok. :) Let him go for it! They all do at some point.

  • Both my 3 year old and 20mos old do it and have been doing it since they figured out they could. They enjoy the dizzy feeling. I apparently did it a ton when I was little too...benefit was later on when I was dancing I could do turns and pirouettes all day without getting dizzy.

  • We rarely go half an hour without a spin session at my house. My son will be two next month and gets such a kick out of it.
