My baby bangs her head to sleep. Is it normal?

Many parents are concerned when their baby bangs her head, moans, or rocks to sleep. It’s actually quite common. It is just a rhythmic motion that soothes the babies. About 50 to 80% of babies bang their head to sleep. As long as your little one is not hurting herself and she is not doing it during the day during non-sleep times, then there is nothing to worry about.

If your little one bangs her head while awake or when she is upset outside of when she is falling asleep, be sure to consult with your health care provider.
