In the past few weeks my "baby", who just turned 18 months, has been having some rough days/parts of days where he seems to get VERY frustrated and slaps me in the face, bites me (on my leg, arm, shoulder), makes frustrated sort of choking noises, intentionally bangs his head on something to make himself cry....from what I understand, this is him expressing his frustration with not being able to control everything in his life but I must say that I make his life VERY comfortable and he has VERY few frustrations (I say "yes' 90% of the time or more). Plus, sometimes these episodes come on without any warning and not as a result of me saying "no". At first I thought it was teething (he used to bang his head when he was teething to create a counter pain) but I don't think that's what it is this time. I'm confused and a bit worried because he is generally a very happy and content baby, I still BF on demand, we bed share, I don't work and spend every second of the day and night with him! Any ideas what could be going on with him? Thanks!
