    Hi, im a stay at home dad with my 2 year old boy. As he falls asleep he is searching for my elbow and starts pitching at it. Often he climbs it and rubs his private parts on it. Same thing on some mornings. Is it a normal behavior? Sorry for the bad english, not my native language. Thank you

      Hi Andrei,
      Thank you for checking out The Baby Sleep Site! Yes, this sounds like a relatively normal behavior for his age. If you have concerns, please do check in with your pediatrician!

    My soon to be 2 year hits the walls on our house all day ( with his hands) he sometimes does it while we are out. Is this something to be concerned about?

      Hi @Melissa – Thank you for writing to us! We do hear about toddler behaviors such as this, though for your peace of mind, you may want to talk to your pediatrician about this and give the doctor the specifics! Thanks again for writing Melissa! Good luck!

    My 1 year old girl has been rocking back n forth, straining, before naps n sleep time. She has been ever since she’s little. Otherwise, she’s a bubbly girl hitting every milestones. Is it normal?

      Hi @Sue – Thanks for writing! Yes, rocking back and forth before sleep is a common self-soothing behavior! if you’re concerned you can always ask your pediatrician too! Good luck and good sleeping!
