8 month old head twitching/dropping....anyone familiar with this?

He does this mostly when he is holding himself up (on a toy, the couch, coffee table) He will drop his head to the left repetitivly for a few seconds. He does not seemed bothered by it, he will be looking at me smiling while its happening. It does happen multiple times a day. I have seen video of infantile spasms where their arms extend and the babies become agitated. What my son is doing does not look like that. I am set to see the pediatric neuologist but they won't see me for a month! Can anyone tell me if they know what this might be?
