Baby shaking head from side to side

I know this can be worrying, but honestly it's very normal. They may be imitating you or they may just like how it feels.

The only time to worry is if you notice they seem to be uncomfortable or are pulling on their ears when they do this. It may be a sign of something like an ear infection.

    I agree, this is very common, especially in the first six months or so.
      Hayden just figured out the back and forth motion and she shakes her head so violently sometimes it makes me nervous!!! But she laughs as she does it, and it's quite clear it is an intentional movement so I try to stay relaxed!
