What is the deal with my 11 month old wacking herself in the head?

My daughter will sit here and take like the remote and just tap it back and forth on her forehead, Somtimes she hits it kinda hard ( doesn't hurt her tho) It is just so weird! Is it normal?
I mean she does bang in to things alot. When she crawls she puts her head down to go faster and hits things very easy.

She also rubs the side of her head alot when she gets tired.

  • Mine thinks its hilarious when she takes both her hands and whaps herself upside the head,lol. Don't know how "normal" it is but she's not hurting herself.

  • when my dd was that age, when she would get upset, she would bang her head into the wall! i think its 'normal behavior'...kinda strange, but as long as she is not harming herself, it will pass!
