My ds, 12 months, has taken to a habit that bothers me greatly. While sitting in his high chair he will bang/slam his head backwards against the back of the high chair repeatedly and violently. It doesn't seem to hurt him, but it drives me crazy and seems like something he shouldn't be doing. He slams back so hard that he scoots the chair across our dining room despite all 4 wheels being locked (granted, we have wood floors, but still). I've tried redirecting and other measures to get him to stop to no avail.

Any advice? Is this normal? He has been known to bang his head purposely on occasion in other places.
