My 11 month old is making jerking movements with his head. Either from side to side or up and down. He has been doing this for about two weeks.

He doesn't seemed phased by it at all but it's worrying me because the only people I've seen do that have some degree of mental retardation.

I was also thinking that he could just be exercising his neck muscles er something...just like when he jerks his arms or legs?

What are your opinions?

My son, now 11 months old has been doing this from about 4 months on. He shakes his head as if he was signaling no. I think he does this because it adds an interesting effect to everything. Its like psychedelic.

i don't think he's trying to communicate...he does it sometimes when we (dh and I) are "not paying attention" too.

it doesn't seem like he has control over it. maybe he does though.

babies are weird
