I banged my head as a child until I was about 5 or 6 years old, and I always rocked myself to sleep, as well. I stopped the head banging, but still have rocked myself to sleep (as well as during sleep) every night and I am now 38 years old. I understand most people grow out of this, but I never did. Would love to know if anyone knows what this is called, what causes it, and if it is something that needs to be corrected. Thank you.
