head banging babies and toddlers
« on: June 19, 2009, 09:13:34 am »

hi mommies... question lang.  ginagawa din ba ng children nyo yung inuuntog niya yung ulo niya?  minsan sa sandalan pag nakaupo sya, minsan sa ulo ng may karga sa kanya.  worry ko lang kasi minsan napapalakas yung untog niya kaya nasasaktan sya.  tapos baka magkaron ng crack ang skull kakauntog.  e soft pa naman ang bones nila.  :-[

minsan ganun din sya sis. pinapalo ng toys niya ulo niya.  tapos ipapakiss sa kin yung ulo niya pag nasaktan sya.  pagka-kiss ko, papaluin ulit tapos papakiss ulit. ay naku, inuulit lang ng inuulit!  kakaloka!

@ Mommy kielsky:

Hi po, You need to investigate when the behavior occurs and what causes it. It could be sensory, a way for him to communicate or a manipulative behavior.

to eradicate this behavior...technique: Systematic Ignoring. To prevent injury, try putting something soft behind them without them taking notice,divert their attention then throw in something soft.

No eye contact or slightest hint that you care that the behavior is occurring.Min. to No eye contact as they are really good in reading body language and facial expressions.

"Always ignore the behavior but not the child" ;)

this may not be true to all kids/babies, but it does happen. the son of my friend has this habit. i guess it can also be out of curiosity on their end. have you consulted with the pedia regarding this? they may have insights on how to prevent this and how to protect your child in case the habit is still there. you should ensure that the environment your son is in conducive and safe, in case the it takes time for your son to get rid of the habit.

pag-tinotopak si iza ko or pag-hindi niya makuha gusto niya, nagse-self destruct siya. hahaha!  like, inuuntog ulo niya or she would pull her hair.  it's not new to me, ganun din kasi ako before. hehe!

but if your baby would just do that for no reason at all, then, he might have some pains in his head that he isn't able to tell you.

i tried to tell him (while looking at his eyes; talagang eye to eye contact) that he should not do it again kasi masasaktan lang sya at magkakabukol.

tapos tumingin talaga sya sa akin - titig na titig. then the next time na gagawin niya uli yun, i interrupted him and just said "no baby, no" masakit sige ka magkakabukol ka nyan (sabay hawak/himas sa ulo niya)

tumigil naman sya...nakakaintindi pala? ;)  takot din siguro masaktan  :)

Hi! My daughter went through that phase too. Just ignore the behavior. Observe when they do that. Is it when they want something? Or when they get frustrated? Or maybe it's just their way of manipulating you. Don't give in. They are very smart. If they see that it worked and you gave in, they will do it again. That's what I did. And one time, she banged her head really hard that she got hurt, she never did it again. Hope it helped. Good luck. ;)

I had observed na mas nagiging fussy ang baby ko pag maraming tao or mas malakas ang loob niya mag lupasay if nandyan ang lolo at lola niya (my in-laws) kasi namna to the rescue talaga ang mga in-laws ko at baka daw masaktan pag inuntog ang ulo at masama daw yun pabayaan...  :(

Pero pag kami lang dalawa or sila lang amg-ama, nd naman sya masyadong maarte  ;)  Pero mas maarte sya pag nandyan kami mag-asawa plus his ate.. :o  idagdag mo pa kapag dumating ang lolo at lola  :-*

But in fairness, if nasa labas kami (mall, doctor) hindi masyadong tantrums niya...

ganyan din baby boy namin.

nung una kasi na.uuntog dahil di pa niya kabisado like pag nakatayo sa wall (gumagabay) & playing.. now, parang dahan.dahan niya nilalapit head niya para malaman kung gaano kalayo sya sa wall para di mauntog :-)
