Why is she shaking her head?

Hi, my baby girl is 9 weeks old and has just started to shake her head side to side, she does this often and varies her speed sometimes fast sometimes slow or both can you please tell me why she has started doing this?
Thanks Nikki

Answer: Hi Nikki, Thank you for your email. It is difficult to understand what your baby may be doing when I am not there on a day to day basis. It could be good to make a diary to see if you can see a pattern as to when your baby shakes her head. If you are worried, I would recommend you to visit your doctor to fully understand what your baby is doing. Jackie
