So, DS will be 5 months old next week. He's been figuring out his hands, and he rubs his eyes when he's tired and stuff. In the last week or so, he's started punching himself in the head while he nurses. Only with the right hand, so only when he's nursing on my right side, and if I try to hold his hand, he gets REALLY ticked with me. I thought he only did it when he was tired, but today he's either been tired all day, or he's just doing it all the time.

Any thoughts? Please someone tell me their baby did this.

Mine's been doing this too for the past few days, but with his left hand, and he smacks himself on the belly.

DS does this when he's tired with his left arm, we call it his Dr. Strangelove arm. (he's almost 4 months)

Mine's also got insane arm & crazy hand going on. He'll whack anything, especially his face when he gets it going. I think he's getting it ready to roll from back to front cuz he's almost there.

Heather, ds Dante (12.28.07) and due in April.

My mom said that DS rolled from front to back last week, but I didn't see it so it doesn't count.

DS is 7 mos. and sometimes will punch the back of his hand with his fist while nursing in the side lying position. Has only recently started to do this...just a few smacks and he's done
