Hello, thanks for the question.
The habit of sticking out the tongue and shaking his head in infants does not always indicate neurological abnormalities or developmental disorders. This can be a normal reflex of a baby or a reflex to express yourself. But sometimes this habit is only done because they like it. Apart from being a normal reflex in infants, these recurring habits may indicate disturbances or signs of certain diseases, such as tic, autism, down syndrome, and others. If you suspect a strange habit in an unusual child or you are worried you should consult a child's doctor. The doctor will conduct an examination and suggest the provision of appropriate treatment. The examination is done by observing the child and with the help of a questionnaire, and can also be done as a blood test, CT scan, EEG, MRI, and others as needed. It is better to keep stimulating them to stimulate their development, talk to them, eat healthy and nutritious foods, give ASI and complementary foods, and make sure immunizations are fulfilled.
Hopefully that helps.
