my baby who is 16months old playfully keeps hitting his head against the wall sometimes from behind or sometimes on his forehead ... is this a sign of serious issue since my paediatrician did say it's common among his age group. of children but refrain him slowly from doing so... I'm so worried about him please suggest

Here are some of the things you can do which can help in reducing the head banging: 1. Give your toddler your attention — but not when he's banging. 2. Protect your child from injury. 3. Show your child's love of rhythm in other ways. 4. Start a soothing bedtime routine. 5. Consult a doctor if your child's behavior becomes worrisome. Hope this helps. Take Care
