Not sure what to do with our little guy. Within the last couple weeks he has starting banging his head on things. The floor, me, his toys, cupboards, walls, whatever. He doesn’t do it hard but he does it alot. He will also hit his own head with his hand when he is frustrated and mad. Sometimes he does it just to be funny because when I put his hand down and say No, he smiles and does it again. He doesn’t do it very hard but it still worries me.
Yesterday was his worst day ever. Both of his naps were interrupted thanks to our loud neighbors and one nasty poopy diaper. So he was working with only 2 short naps instead of his 2 long naps. Around 645 last night, he had a MAJOR meltdown and was so upset and crying so hard and when I got his jammies on and took him into his room, he was calm and quiet. I laid him in his bed and he was out within 10 minutes.
I worry, because with his history of stroke, they say he could have a slightly higher chance of autism. Some of the places I have checked out for the head banging say it could be a sign of autism.
He is hitting every milestone and is usually a very happy boy. He doesn’t do well without his naps though.
I am so worried. I have a call into his Dr. but I thought I would post here to get some real moms advice.
