Still Banging

stillbanging

This is sort of a remix of my previous "Banging to Sleep" video. It has some recent footage in it. Maddy was about 11 months when the first one was shot. She is now 17 months and still at it. Check it out!

I couldn't help but laugh when she had her back to the bars of the crib and was banging her head forward (towards the center of the crib). But later, I noticed she was in sync with the music, for a short moment, which was hysterical because it looked as though she was dancing to music.

Why she does this totally baffles me. I assume she doesn't hurt herself.

Perhaps she'll grow up to be a dancer!

Great video though!

She is going to be a rock n roll star-- I can feel it.

Wow, that is hilarious. She must be loving that sensory overload. And I have to agree with Josh, the baby monitor was genius.

Cheers,

And to think I sucked my thumb to calm myself. She is so adorable. She's a fidgeter, I can tell. She'll be the person who's shaking their legs and causing a ruckus unintentionally. I should know, I'm one.

I'm glad I just went to the restroom or I would have peed my pants laughing! I love how you captured all thid - the baby monitor and all - she will enjoy this when she gets older :)

In all seriousness, you might want to consider looking into "Sensory Integration Disorder."
Some children seek out input to their heads (or feet) to give their brain "input." It actually calms them down and organizes their sensory system. There's a great book called, "The Out of Sync Child" you might want to consult, as well as your daughter's pediatrician.

Thanks for the concern anonymous :) We were concerned at first too. Rest assured, we've talked it all over with the pediatrician several times. She has no other symptoms of anything suggesting there might be a problem. It's just the banging. She seems normal in every other way. I just learned recently that my mother did this exact thing as a child as well. Maybe it's genetic! It's usually only when she is tired and about to go to sleep in her crib, or when she is swinging. Thanks for visiting :)
