J has started banging his head into things, smacking his face on things, or throwing his body into the back of the couch. I talked to the pedi about it and she said it's normal and to ignore the behavior if he's on the couch and redirect him to the couch if he's banging where he can hurt himself. It's so tough to ignore the behavior when he slams his face into something and then comes bawling for hugs and kisses. How do you tell your crying baby that you can't kiss the boo boo because he did it to himself on purpose.
The pedi says the new baby didn't cause the behavior but will probably cause it to continue for awhile. Any other LO's banging into things for attention? How are you handling it? If it's stopped, how long did it last? As always TIA ladies! You take such good care of me
