He rocks his head from side to side

Hi, I have noticed that sometimes mostly when my 7 month old baby is tired that he rocks his head from side to side. What does this mean?

Answer: Hi , This is a common behaviour for babies. Your son has learned this new action which is fun to do and he is testing it out or gets comfort from it. This activity will eventually stop, but he will undoubtedly be left with the typical "bald spot" on the back of his head! Again, this is normal and will change in time. All the Best! Sally-Anne
