Welcome to the board.

I would suggest maybe putting him in his bed and letting him bang his head on the pillow.

Not to alarm you but I have also heard that is a sign of Autism. You might want to mention that to your doctor.

I would perhaps try some re-direction. Try and find out why he's not happy. It could be that he just can't communicate his needs and gets overly frustrated.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

Totally agree with MellieB.
Sometimes it does happen with kids as they are not able to speak their words or they are feeling uncomfortable. So only thing we can do for them is to become aware what they are looking for or what are the deals that bother them most. These could help you out.

My DD used to do this when she was younger! What we would do was pick her up so she couldn't hurt herself (usually pretty difficult to do because she was so angry) and hold her. We would tell her we understood she was angry but we couldn't help her until she calmed down and told us what was wrong. She would fuss for another few minutes but the time got less and less because she learned the routine.

I'm sorry it is happening to you- I talked to DD's ped and she told me it was a result that she had something to say but didn't have the words to say. It made sense because it calmed down around the time she had a vocabulary explosion.

Good luck dealing with this fun part of toddlerhood!
