madami din pala dito kapareho ng anak ko. sabi nga ng sister ko na nag-aalaga sa kanya saka lang daw niya ginagawa yong pag-uuntog ng ulo niya pag andun ako. minsan tuloy napapalo ko sya kasi sa sobrang pag-alala ko baka kung mapano yong ulo niya o magkaron ng blood clot kasi lagi niya inuuntog lalo na pagnanagalit sya, pag may gusto sya na di ko agad maibigay sa kanya o di masunod yong gusto niya. malay natin kung sa paglaki nila saka magkaron ng masamang epekto yong pag uuntog nila ng ulo di ba? minsan nga nagkakabukol sya pag malakas yong pagkauntog niya. ang pinaka iiwasan ko lang talaga yong likod ng ulo niya yong iuuntog niya kasi delikado daw yon. ginagawa ko pag aaksyon na sya na iuntog ulo niya kinakarga ko na lang agad o susundin na lang yong gusto niya though alam ko di maganda yon kasi makakasanayan niya yon.. :(

ganyan din baby ko for 2 months. pag hindi nasusunod or pag hindi niya nagagawa yung gusto niya, iuumpog ang ulo or papaluin yung ulo. ang ginawa ko, hina-high 5 ko pag pinapalo niya yung ulo niya and ihug ko sya kung iiumpog ulo niya and i'll advise her to have more patience. ayun, after 2 months, nawala na.. she is 2 years and 9 months now.

 :( :(   bumalik na naman yung ganitong bisyo ng baby ko. nawala sya for some time, dahil iniiwasan ko talaga na magalit sya or mairita that would end up banging her head on the floor. but there are just things na hindi niya dapat gawin, like yung petroleum jelly gagawing pomada (natulog kami last night na ang lagkit lagkit ng hair niya). tapos yung uubusin ang baby powder sa floor at gagawa ng snow angel, at naku ang popscicle 3x a day. nagagalit sya pag hindi nasusunofd ang gusto niya o pag sinasaway.

in 4 days time, sunod sunod ang bukol niya sa noo. kanina lang meron na naman, halos same spot lang nung nabukulan the other day.

again i'll ask you moms.. up to what extent do we ignore them once they throw tantrums. kasi nga sa case niya, habang iniignore ko yung toyo niya, e mag-uuntog ng ulo sa floor. kahit child proof ang house namin, gagapang sya sa tiles para gawin yun    :(

Use the following tips to stop your toddler's head-banging for good: (By Catherine Johnson, a yahoo! contributor)

Tip 1: Do Nothing. Simply ignore your toddler. He will stop head-banging when it hurts or when he gets bored.

Tip 2: A visit to a trusted doctor or pediatrician may be in order. A serious anger issue or a health problem may be the underlying cause of your toddler head-banging.

Use the following tips to stop your toddler's head-banging for good:

Tip 1: Do Nothing. Simply ignore your toddler. He will stop head-banging when it hurts or when he gets bored.

Tip 2: A visit to a trusted doctor or pediatrician may be in order. A serious anger issue or a health problem may be the underlying cause of your toddler head-banging.

Tip 3: Catch it before it happens. If you see the situation flaring up to the point you can predict that your toddler is going to act out by head-banging, tell her you know what is about to happen, and that this behavior is no longer acceptable. Direct your toddler's attention to something else.

Tip 4: DO NOT give in to your toddler. If your child is head-banging in anger or retaliation, she knows exhibiting this behavior really bothers you. So your child did not get her way for whatever reason... she needs to understand that head-banging is NOT the get-out-of-jail-free card. Each time you acquiesce to head-banging, you are only encouraging this behavior.

Tip 5: Removal. Remove your child from the head-banging zone. Change the scenery; try moving her outside. Or remove yourself. Walk away.

Tip 6: Warn friends and family of the possibility of your toddler head-banging. Do not let them be blindsided by your tyrant. Stop the play dates with other children (who can't defend themselves). Your child will soon get the picture: he must stop head-banging for friends and family (aka, society in general) to enjoy being around him.

Tip 7: Give more positive attention when your child is NOT head-banging. Your child may be crying out for attention and, although it's negative, head-banging (in your child's mind) is the only time you notice her.

Tip 8: Tell your child TO head-bang. How? In Making the Terrible Two's Terrific, John Rosemond suggests to, matter-of-factly, inform your child that when he head bangs, he must go to his room to do so. Even draw a loop on the wall, and tell him to make sure he bangs his head inside the circle. Crazy? Maybe... but once your child figures out that the head-banging behavior does not get under your skin like it used to, the novelty will wear off.

Tip 9: Reward the child when he DOES NOT head-bang. There will come a time when your toddler will get upset and not head-bang. Immediately, reward your child appropriately. Tell your toddler you know she is angry and you are proud of her showing her feelings in a way other than head-banging.

Tip 10: Eliminate something. While your toddler is playing, get on his level, and explain the type of behavior you expect. Let him know that it is OK to get upset, but NOT alright to head-bang. If he head-bangs, for any reason, he will lose a toy or freedom (choose something that will mean the most) for a set period of time. Then follow through with your promise.

Yun kapatid, nung bata pa siya, inuumpog niya ulo niya sa sahig pag nagagalit siya.  So far, he 37yo wala naman effect kaya lang walang tiyaga magaaral dati pero super techie at parang scientist at business minded pa.

Grabe din magtantrums si baby. Last month ko napansin na kapag hindi nasusunod ang gusto niya, nagpapapansin, napagalitan, or frustrated sya, iuuntog niya ang ulo niya sa kung san pwede iuntog. I asked pedia about this and she told me na iIgnore ko lang daw. She saw kasi one time etong gawain na to ni baby nung nasa clinic kame. And sabi niya, wag ako maggive-in sa gusto ni baby kasi it's a way daw of him to manipulate me. Wag ko daw pansinin at bigyan ng pillow or anything soft para dun sya mag head bang. Sa ngayon, hinahayaan ko ang gawain nyang to. Sana mawala na din to.

me too.. my son who just turned 1 last june, mahilig din mag untog ng ulo - sa crib at sa wall.. at first kumbaga parang dinuduyan duyan niya lang then kagabi, napalao ko sa puwet niya kasi inuuntog na niya sa wall - as in nadinig ko yung malakas na pag bang ng ulo niya.. worried kasi ako baka later on maging cause pa yun ng mga sakit sa ulo.. im not thinking na this is his way to manipultae us, make papansin or what in fact sagana siya sa pansin kasi nga napaka bubbly, smiling face at super cuddly siya kaso pag nag he-head bang siya, nakaka alarma na.. what do you think mga sis, will this trait will just go away or dapat na bang ipacheck agad or deadmahin na lang..

will this kind of attitude ba magkaka cause ng sakit sa ulo, i mean yung meningitis ba yun?.. nag woworry kasi ako eh.. feeling ata ni baby, kahoy or bato yung ulo niya.. tsk tsk tsk...

^ I think there are a lot of reasons why babies do this, but being the mother and knowing your child best, you are the best judge as to why your baby does it.

In my case, it was not because of an illness or manipulation, although I also considered these. It started when my daughter noticed that her head bounced off the wall when she bumped on it the first time. Instead of crying, she sort of "tested" the wall again, this time bumping her head on the wall slowly. Natawa pa nga sya. Para sigurong tumatalbog yung ulo niya sa pakiramdam niya. When she did it again, I reprimanded her. She stopped, but she did it again the next day.

Sinasaway ko lang sya. I was telling her to stop the noise, para hindi niya maramdaman na worried ako :D  When she did it again the next day, I decided that I'll just pick her up, carry her for a while, at libangin sya para makalimutan niya yung dingding. This strategy worked :)

Hay naku mga sis, marami palang kaparehas ang baby ko. inuuntog niya rin head niya sa pader or sa lapag namin kapag may gusto syang ipilit sa akin. Kapag mahina, hinahayaan ko pa, pero kapag malakas na inaawat ko na talaga or pinapalo. Nagawa ko na kasi sa kanya before yung patakas na maglalagay ng unan pra dun siya manghead bang kaso nabubuko niya, kasi walang tunog. hehe. Ang kulit lang talaga, may time nga na sasabihin ko pa na... gusto mo ako pa mag-untog syo? lalakasan ko pa para mas ok. hehe
lalayo na yun sa akin. Or minsan sasabihin ko, "kapag di ka nagstop na iumpog yung head mo, magagalit si mama. Gusto mo bang magalit si mama?" sasabihin niya "ayaw po" sabay magsasabi na Love mama.. love mama... tapos yayakapin niya ako then kiss  ;)

I's good to see this thread kasi I've been worried too for m son. Just like the other moms, he bangs his head to anything kapag galit and sometimes he bites anything too if he gets too frustrated. I have noticed that my baby is so impatient. Sabi ko nga i think pag laki niya he has to undergo anger management.

Mommies, is this something serious that I have to worry about? Is it best to see a a child behavior specialist to have it assessed? I am worried with this kind of behavior eh.. TIA
