I realise its normal and many babies do it, but does anybody know why my 7 week old shakes his head from side to side a lot? Its when he's just sitting, minding his own business, not when I'm trying to feed or play with him.

my daughter is 13 weeks old and has been doing this for a while, she seems to do it when she is getting hungry or has a little trapped wind
hope this helps xx

My Ds has been doing this for a while now and is 7 months. Didn't know it was trapped wind, thought he had the hump with me! Haha xxx

My 8 month old has started doing this in the past couple of days - mainly when she's in the highchair and also when I've been changing her nappy. She's been ill and I wondered if she may have had an earache / infection but the doctors couldn't see anything yesterday. So I'm not sure what it is.

my 10 month old went through a phase of doing it all the time, I was worried he could have an ear inection or something but when I phoned to spoke to HV she said it was normal and that he probably just liked the slightly dizzy feeling he got when he did it x he doesn't do it as much now so seemed to stop after a few weeks x x

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
