My baby wants to stand on her head - is this normal?

My baby is constantly wanting to stand on her head, is this normal? It is usually when she is tired, has gas pains, feeling bored but I'm wondering if this is normal and is it safe for her to be upside down all of the time?

Re: My baby wants to stand on her head - is this normal?

How does she stand on her head? Is she still using her toes and then making a V with her body. Head down and toes down, butt in the air? If that is the way she is doing it then my son did that all of the time. I think he thought it was exciting to do something new with his body.

Re: My baby wants to stand on her head - is this normal?

my almost 13 month old went through the same thing when he was about 11 months, he would stand on his head and look between his legs all the time, and he still does it every once in a while.
my husbands great great grandmother used to say that when a baby does that, it means another one is on the way. thank God that is just an old wives tale or we would have hundreds. i think it is pretty normal, i also have a 4 year old that done the same thing when he was that age. i think it is just something new and fun to do, and they have found a way to look at things from a new angle.

DS does that ALL the time, it is sooo funny, in fact I was going to start a thread about it! I thought it was because MIL is teaching him to do Sumersaults (she holds him in the air and flips him). He was doing it at the beach to the point that you couldnt' even see his face for the sand.

Dd is almost 11 months and will stand on her head and look between her legs. It's hysterical to watch. I wouldn't worry.
