Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My toddler and extreme repitition

10 answers
1 year ago
My 2 year old (will be 3 in Feb), does some things pretty repetitively. Nothing serious, normally. I've just noticed that he'll do a statement (he's not fully talking yet), gibberish over and over again, with the same emphasis, tone, volume etc. something like, 10-20 times in one sitting. He's not asking for anything, just making a statement of some sort. He also, when he finds an act that's fun, would probably do it 100 times + and not be sick of it. It sounds normal as I read this, but he does it exactly the same each time. He wants to watch the same movie, over and over again. A couple of weeks ago, he would stick his finger in his ear, wiggle it and make a weird sound and he would do it time and time again, exactly the same each time. Maybe he's just a repetitive being .. which I suppose isn't an issue. Does this all sound normal?

It sounds normal to me. Sometimes kids just want to be heard, they want to make sure people are paying attention to them. Especially if they have younger sibblings.

It does sound pretty normal. My daughter just turned 4 a couple of months ago, and all summer the only movie she wanted to watch was Megamind. Over and over and over. My 2 1/2 year old son was the same way with Cars. My daughter also repeats a question or statement over and over until we acknowledge her, even if she's telling us right in our faces. (It's soooo irritating!) My son constantly jumps off furniture until we tell him to stop.Little kids are just like that. They find something they like and only want to watch/say/do that thing. It seems crazy to adults, because we like cariety. But kids like routine, repetition, and comfort. So they stick with what they know they like.If you're really concered, there's no harm in calling your pediatrician.
