  • Normal development, she's repeating the headshaking she's seen others do & learning what the word means.

  • She's exploring new sensations and new abilities. It's a good thing. :)

  • lol, she's finding out she has some control over her body. If she does it and frets while doing it then have her ears checked but if she's happy then she's probably fine and just checking out her body and how it works.

  • My daughter did this early on (does it now at 14 months but it definately means no now) I was told they are learning they have rhythm I was also told they may bang their head against a wall and it is for the same reason....it passes and it did and she is a normal kid.
