My son is 11 months old. I have no reason to think he has anything wrong with him, but just wanted to hear where your child is/was developmentally at this age.
He pays attention really well. Notices EVERYTHING, even the smallest little details, and sits quietly watching how things work...and then will try doing it himself...like turning on a light switch or pushing a button. He is very happy. Smiles a lot and laughs too. Rarely cries. Only takes 2, 30 minute naps a day if I'm lucky, but sleeps more than 10 hours straight at night. Is not walking on his own but walks holding onto something. Started crawling at 9 months. Everything goes is his mouth. Cries when I leave the room or set him down sometimes. Seems to bang his head on things when he wants attention or is tired. Says Mama and Dada. Recognizes his own name, the word DOG, LIGHT, and BABY.

I would have two concerns, sleeping for 10 hours at night and head banging. It is very important for brain growth that the brain has food. The longest it would take for breastmilk or formula to digest if you feed a baby right before sleep is 4 hours. At that time blood sugar would be low and the baby should wake to eat and that gives the brain the sugar it needs for growth. If a baby sleeps for 10 hours not only is blood sugar low but the body starts using other ways to feed itself that aren't healthy. I would wake a baby at least every 4 hours to breastfeed.
Head banging is never normal. If a child is getting attention they don't have to resort to abnormal behavior "to get attention". If he is tired you or someone should hold him, not allow him to bang his head.
