Is this okay??

My son (11 mos. old) recently started shaking his head back and forth really fast (like 'no'). Sometimes he does it really (scarily) fast and keeps his eyes opened and laughs. Is this something that he is discovering and having fun with, or is it like a mini-seisure??

  • I don't think thats a seizure my son, also 11 months dose the exact same thing he's been doing it for about a month i think it's just a stage some kids go through i've seen other kids do it to.

  • Alot of kids do it, it makes them dizzy and they like it. LOL. My 16 month old still does it, but now she also associates it with the word "no"... which is her favorite word. LOL.
