This can't be normal?...

God love him but my son is so clumsy! He's 19 months old and smart as can be but he hits his head all the time! Whether it be get out from under the table or just from falling. Should I be conserned, should I purchase a crash helmet? I'm afraid someone will say something one day because he has so many bruises on his head. It's a constant battle my son versus the table or some other piece of furniture!!!!

AWW... I am not sure if that is normal or not... I cannot remember my daughter doing that, but we did tell her to watch a lot when she go into things... So maybe a crash helmet for a little bit unless it gets worse...

I don't know if this helps or not, but my daughter who will be 6 next month is the most clumsy person i know.  She has always been that way.  Her kindergraden teacher even asked us about it.  LOL

My daughter is 4 and does the same thng. My brother has always told me I jinxed her by naming her Grace but I guess its normal.

My 2 year old still does it. She also walks into walls cause she's not paying attention.

I would say that it is very normal.  Bryce was very clumsy at that age and Noah is 18 months now and some days I wonder how even manages to walk he is so clumsy.  LOL  He doesn't go a day without hurting himself somehow.

i think that its normal because my almost two yr old does it all the time. there is nothing wrong with him. but hes just a boy and thats what he likes to do, i dont encourage it but he just doesnt look to see where he is going or what he is doing. so its ok as long as he is not doing it to make himself bleed.

My son is 12 months and is constantly hitting his head.  He doesn't even react anymore because he is so used to it. LOL!!  For about 2 months he walked around with a huge goose egg on his forehead.  He bumped his head and then when that knot went away he bumped it again.  You wouldn't believe the stares.  We also had a lot of parents tell us that they went through the same thing so that made us feel better :)

From the looks of the other replies our children are not abnormal. Cheyenne has done this a few times also. She is only two. I think the main problem is the are so busy playing and so young that being safe is the last thought they have. Lol, Cheyenne even gets upset with me when I stop her from what she is doing to stop her from hurting herself.

Poor kiddo- mine was the same way.  I had to like OCD style child proof my home.  Meaning the coffee table went to storage and other end table type things.  Child gates were at every door way- and my friend actually made a cover for their fire place because her boy fell right on the corner and gashed his head :(  I would say get all of the little gadgets they make to child proof stuff and just pray- LOL!  I'd tell your doc too- but I bet he'd say he's a boy and this is what they do- LOL!  Good luck!

   Yep, thats my Dustin too, smart as a whip, but he inherited his mothers "grace" gene! We don't worry too much, we have self stick pads on the worst of the corners and just hold our breath w/ the rest! He still knocks his noggin, but I think its all part of growing up!
