I'm a 22 year old female, and I have this habit of rocking myself to sleep. I can't go to sleep unless I rock myself, and I find it so comforting. Will I be rocking myself to sleep forever? And is it normal?

I've rocked myself to sleep since birth. Destroyed my crib. As soon as my head hits the pillow I'm off. It just feels normal to me. Some nights when I couldn't sleep, instead of counting sheep, I'd count rocks. I've been well into the thousands before I quit or fell asleep.

I've never met anyone else who does it. Or admits to it.

When I get a GF that I'd shack up with I'd tell them that I do it in my sleep sometimes. But they all eventually figured out that I do it before I sleep. Much to my surprise, not a single one of them has ever given a shit. They've never said anything or made fun of me. That goes for my wife as well.

So if you're a rocker like me, don't let it bother you. No one really cares.

Btw....I'm 45

I'm the same. I need to roll my head from side to side to fall asleep. I've been married 26 years and my other half doesn't care, in fact I had to spend a couple of night in hospital and he couldn't sleep because there wasn't a rocking motion. I've always done it and I'm 47 now. Both my daughters do it as well. I can't sleep if I don't.

I had a friend who had to bang his head into a pillow, rhythmically. He called it "bonking," and couldn't sleep without doing it. Sleeping over sucked, until he finally fell asleep.

He grew out of it in his twenties.

I'm 30 and I have done it for as long as I can remember. I remember my mother said I used to sit on my elbows and knees in bed rocking back and forth, banging my head on the headboard. Thankfully the headbanging stopped pretty soon and there wasn't any permanent damage (although I am going bald).

Why? Well believe it or not this is actually the first time I have ever thought to look it up! I found this:

"More primitive mammals cling to their mother or ride in a pouch, but humans must be carried. Rocking simulates being carried by the mother as an infant. To our primitive ancestors, the instinct to awaken and cry if movement stops gives an unpleasant stimulus to the mother and kept many a child from being left behind, so it became an evolutionary imperative."

Which is why the majority of humans like being rocked to sleep; be it in a hammock, on a swing or in a rocking chair. Maybe as babies we weren't held enough, so we self-soothed by rocking ourselves and this carried on into adulthood. I don't really know it's just a guess but it's certainly better than the so-called 'equilibrium'! So be thankful you come a from a long line of rockers!

Thanks for posting wileycat1. I'm a 35 year old male and have been rocking myself to sleep for as long as I can remember. Just like you I only recently decided to look this up. It seems to be more common than I thought. I was in a relationship for 4 years so couldn't do it but found that tapping at least one finger or foot constantly gave roughly the same results. Now I'm single again I rock my self to sleep every night without thinking about it. It's nice to hear that I'm not the only one to do this. It personately dose not bother me, just a part of who I am I guess. Rock away dude!

I'm a 23 year old female and have been rocking since I was a toddler. I do it every night and I used to feel ashamed of it in my 2 year relationship but eventually I couldn't hide it anymore. I'm glad to see that other people do it too.

It is called Rhythmic Movement Disorder RMD, I am 50 and I have been 'rocking' since toddler-hood. I am a substance abuse counselor and I have spoken to many professionals about this issue. Live your life and do not worry about what others think. You are as NORMAL as everyone else!!

Rhythmic Movement Disorder is an involuntary neurological condition. Rocking yourself to sleep is super voluntary!

Hi guys, my names Jen and I'm a 29 year old rocker! ( As my username might suggest)! ;)

I have rocked for as long as I can remember and always thought I was weird. Like a few of you have mentioned, I also hid this from many boyfriends out of embarrassment but the few who I felt comfortable enough to do it around were absolutely fine about it and even tried it themselves to see what all the fuss was about. It didn't stick for them but I suppose it's just habit.

I struggle every night to fall asleep and find that the only comfort is to rock myself, however, this can go on for hours upon hours and although my body is relaxed and soothed, my mind continues thinking and worrying which keeps me up for hours. I've tried hypnotherapy, sleeping tablets, even smoking weed to try and ease me into a nice sleep. Nothing works. I tend to sleep during the day out of exhaustion and rock away for hours at night trying to regain some what of a normal body clock.

Bet you fellow female rockers out there agree with the morning hair blues too! Jeeeez! Sometimes my hair can literally look like a birds nest on my head. My fiancé finds it hilarious but trying to get a brush through it is a nightmare!

I cannot tell you all though, how pleased I am to know that I am not alone. It feels like I have been living in a bubble my whole life and now it has been popped and I have seen what's out there in the world. Keep rocking folks, but remember, a good conditioner is essential! ;)

My son whos 12 yrs old rocks himself to sleep every night. He has been doing this since he was 5 months. He puts his arm in the back and rocks. Now i've read most of the things that r up. But i'm afraid if i go let him sleep out that he'll get made fun of. What should I do?

Sadly, your 12 years old son will get made fun of regardless how he falls asleep, that's teenagers for you. Just support him, everybody's different!

Oh My God!! It's the year 2016,and I just finally decided to google what my condition was called.Yup...I'm a rocker.I've been rocking since I was an infant,my family has always made fun of me when they catch me doing it,hehehe(they still do).I've never rocked with any of my boyfriends,I just always tried to make myself so busy and tired for that day or days so that at night I would just sleep right off and not think about rocking.I never told any of them that I rocked cause I was ashamed and thought there was something really wrong with me psychologically.When i googled it,it mentioned that it can be neurological or due to a head trauma...when i was a baby learning how to walk,i would always fall on my head first...i would never break my fall with my hands,it was always with my head...my mom said there was a time it became too frequent and she was scared that i cracked my forehead...i was okay...so i dont know...its probably all a maybe.Rocking makes me feel relaxed and calm...if I don't rock my whole body back and forth on the bed or move a leg like a wiper I wouldn't feel calm.I'm so happy I found this website and topic...I've always thought I was alone.I'm a university bachelor's graduate,I'm 26 and I'm a rocker.

actually thats pretty normal alot of your body functions are determened by your equilibreum and the rocking motion has a soothing effect on our brains most likely you can talk to a doctor or therapist about having trouble sleeping and they could offer some alternatives that are more comfortable and convenient but for the most part totally normal.

I did this as a kid, and do it sometimes when I have insomnia. Put my feet against the wall and push with them to rock myself to sleep. Not sure why, but it feels good.

Sounds weird and definently a double standard (good for you, bad for me) but girls in general can get away with doing this. However, I suffer from insomia so if it would help me sleep, I would do it. Good for you and it is rather cute from my perspective.

I'm 44. As a baby, I used to rock forward and back and bang my head on the wall. As I got older, I switched to the side to side rocking of my head, which eliminated the jarring and disturbing (to others) sound of banging of my head. When lying on my stomach, rocking my foot back and forth also worked. I have also liked the light dizzy sensation in my head when playing on swings or rocking in a rocking chair. It's relaxing! When I left home for college and moved into dorm life, I worked really hard to stop "rocking" at will. Eventually I learned to go all night without rocking voluntarily. However, rocking while asleep still occurred: during sleepovers, friends and bedmates would wake me up to tell me to stop rocking because it was disturbing their sleep. At 44, I still rock my head in bed to calm myself, even voluntarily. I have resolved that it is normal for me to rock my head, it calms me, and I am not hurting myself by doing it. I have a theory that this habit is why I don't get seasick easily.

I'm 17 years old. I've rocked myself to sleep ever since I can remember really. I would just "rock" myself to sleep by kinda banging my head against my pillow (not violently) rhythmically until I fell asleep. I don't know why. I would keep a steady pace and until I slowly dozed off. When I was younger and smaller I would also climb into a chair and sit in it (Indian style) with my legs crossed and rock my whole body back and forth and close my eyes and just concentrate. My family would give me a hard time about it and my siblings would tease me but I had no clue why I did it. When I spend the night at my friends houses I have to resist "rocking" my head against my pillow because it would seem weird, but I've found that just tapping my leg against the bed or moving my hands in the same rhythmic kind of way helps me to call asleep as well. Either way, I am 17 and I still rock myself to sleep. I don't think it's a problem and I think it's just a normal phenomena that doesn't really effect you, it just helps me sleep. Other than rocking I'm just an average everyday teenager. Hope this helped in some way, at least in finding comfort that there's others out there!

Hey Anthony, My name is Larry and I am going to be 56 in April, and I have rocked all my life. When I had a partner in bed I had no need to rock, I would just cuddle with him and fall asleep. But when I am by myself I have rocked for over 8 hours trying to get to sleep. when I was in the Army I had friends tell me I must have had a really bad dreams because I just kept moving back and forth. I do it to relax and get everything out of my head. so sometimes it does take along time, I also suffer Restless Leg Syndrome, which can be a real bitch, so Anthony just relax your are normal.

I'm 35 and have rocked myself to sleep since infancy. This is the first time I've ever decided to look it up and I am stunned to read so many others also do this. I grew up being picked on by my siblings. Shared a room with my older sister and I had the squeaky trundle bed and she complained I kept her awake with the noise. I only rock while lying on my right side it feels like work/effort on the opposite side. And it feels like work to NOT rock while lying on my right side. It's natural and soothing and comforting. My grandmother used to tell me no one would ever marry me if I couldn't lay still in the bed. At family gatherings someone always asks, "do u still rock like u used to"? Yes. When I stayed the night at friends' houses growing up I would try to hide it. I had to focus on not moving. Usually rocking my foot helped. I can remember as I child I use to also hum while rocking. Comforting myself I suppose. I did recently spend time with someone new and even if I am not going to sleep, and I'm just lying there watching tv for. While, I will want to rock some. So, this person saw me rocking and got closer to me. I needed room to rock so I moved awY a little. He kept getting close again. So I asked him to give me room. He asked what was I doing. I said nothing. I just need some room to move. He acted so stupid, "what are u doing, what is this,?" I told him to just leave me alone and let me do it. I told him it's comfortable and I always have done it and needed to have some room. He was a little bit insulting. It's cool to see all these others who have done this too. In the car on long trips I also (much less frequently/urgently) would rock a little front and back motion. Let's have a rockin' sleep over and hum each other to sleep and wake up and go swing on a swing and lay in hammocks lol bliss

I'm a 56yo male and have also been rocking my whole life. I still feel weird, but it's nice to know there's others out there. When I was really little, I would sometimes call out "Mom" over and over with each rock. Fortunately I outgrew that part. It's kind of a hypnotic experience for me. I rock only occasionally now.

Feeling embarrassed about it in the past, when sleeping with or around other people I would sneak little tiny rocks, hoping I wouldn't be noticed. Often I would wait until I heard others snoring. But, with everything going on in the world today, I'm not sure this is really a big deal. And if it's weird, that's even better.

I even used to rock while holding my siamese cat. He really liked it and would never try to get away from my arms. There's just a little trick to getting it just right.

Thinking about it, I believe those who rock may really be the super special, highly intelligent, and very funny people that everyone wants to be near.

ALL ROCKERS MATTER!

I'm 18 and have too do this in order to fall asleep. I got to bed at 9 u start rockin and eventually fall asleep around 1 am. I feel weird because o this. My own family has made fun of me for this. I'm glad I'm not the only 1 out there as for a long time I thought I was. I don't think I'll ever grow out of this. But hopefully I do. I've heard ppl rock back and forth because of not being held enough as a baby. I find myself very sluggish in the morning and hyper later in the day.

I'm 23 and I've been rocking and moaning since I was in a crib. I find I only feel the urge to rock now when I'm stressed or if I have a lot on my mind. I'm sure it's tied to ADHD but I haven't seen a doctor about this yet. Do you rock every night?

I believe the answer to your question is a resounding Yes! Most people seem to rock every night but tamp it down when they have to share a bed with someone. That is what I am gathering but I would rock every night and every morning if I could.

Hey, Im 22 and Im commenting to let you know that you are not alone. I love to do this and I find it very soft and calming after a long day at work or ESPECCIALLY if I am stressed out. I would find myself using a rocking chair, softly laying on my side rocking, or using my back hammock if I am really adventurous. DESPITE WHAT PEOPLE SAY I want to let you know that there is absolustly nothing wrong with you or the rocking that you do, as it is very thereputic and it is used as a calming technique by adults all the time, and is being studied in science more often than we may be led to beleive. I hope this helps. Have very sweet dreams

I have rocked since a baby, every night for 15 to 30 mins. I am 46 now. The only time i do not rock is if someone is in bed w me. However i will need to go to bed early or have to take a nap during day if i miss too many nights. Surprisingly no one has ever said anything about it.

To all my rockers out there..no pun intended... :) Have you ever rocked so much that it doesn't help you fall asleep as quickly anymore. Is that normal. I am 23 and I have rocked since infancy and now I will rock from 9 to 1 am finding it hard to fall asleep until I lay still. :(

I'm a 22 y/o male and I do it too.. I've been rocking from the cradle and I hate it so much... Over the years it has caused me a great deal of depression and I find it difficult to sustain a relationship anymore because im so scared that when she realises that I rock myself to sleep (EVERY NIGHT!) she'll think im a freak and move on... Anyways guys I think the medical term is RMD (Rythmic movement disorder). There is also variations, if that makes any sense, such as RLS (Restless leg syndrome) which of course is a constant movement of the legs (usually) during wake and nocturn hours. My brother used to bang his head also but that fits in with RMD. Aswell, just to clarify , its linked to autism but dont worry because it isnt directly linked and im unsure wether there is any evidence to suggest that this theory is positive. (I'm not autistic anyway) I just wanted to know why I rock thats how I ended up here - wileycat1 - I partly support this theory although there is no evidence of that (Yet).. Ive read that somewhere. Peace out to all the rockers!! Such a unique species :P

I'm a 43 year old male and I've always rocked,banging my head on the wall as a child so my mum moved my bed to the middle of the room,now I rock every night,just had a hip replacement,not sure if it's to much rocking,I only do it when I'm in bed alone

Another option is that you are hyper when you are going to sleep. I'm saying this because I'm ADHD and I have too much energy when I go to sleep, so I rock my head, or sometimes my who body to go to sleep. It was I habit I got in to when I was about 4, what id suggest doing is listening to music while trying to sleep without rocking, as it gives your mind something to concentrate on while sleeping.

I am 18 , I've never had a serious boyfriend. As a child I rocked my crib apart and ususlly during car rides I bang my head against the seat . My family always joked around with me and made fun of me . I was so happy to have found people like me because I never knew it was normal . When I go to friends house or they come over mine I used to find it very embarrassing but now I just laugh at myself and tell certain friends. I sometimes hum and count numbers. Sometimes when I am just bored I will sit there and just rock away for hours. I find it very soothing . Nobody has really ever been mean to me about rocking and if they are then they are not worth my time . I say to keep rocking and be happy! Rock on rockers ;)

Any of you suffer from tinnitus (ringing of the ears)? I rocked myself to sleep every night as far back as I can remember. The rocking gradually stopped when I learned to manage the tinnitus (maybe mid-teen years). My family ridiculed me for this as well.

Hi everybody! I've been rolling my head to fall asleep it from the crib right up to today.

When I was still a baby, my mother used to be very anxious about me doing it, fearing some obscure neurological condition, so she consulted with several pediatricians. As it was obviously too soon for me to confirm that the head-rolling was voluntary, some doctors suggested invasive pharmaceutical treatment. She finally consulted a sleep specialist that went to this admirably simple workflow with her:

1. Does it help him sleep? (yes)
2. Does he seem to enjoy it? (yes)

The clever doc said something like: “Well, then, let the poor child be, for God's sake”, so my mom chilled out about it, and I turned out perfectly fine. I'm a 24-year-old male with good social skills (no autistic/Asperger-like condition). Throughout my teenage years, I had to learn to fall asleep without doing it (e.g. when I had friends over at home, or when I started having a girlfriend), but I still enjoy doing it when I'm alone. It makes me feel the "rollercoaster" effect other people in this thread have mentioned, helps me let go of uneasy thoughts and fall asleep quickly. I rarely "stop" doing it voluntarily, rather falling asleep directly in the process.

Moral of the story: people have some very unique habits and pretty much anybody does something special that people are quick to diagnose as a super obscure neuro-mental-social-linguistico-autistic condition, but this particular thing is probably a remnant of the soothing movements from your time in the womb, when every micro-movement of your mom would “rock” you in the amniotic fluid. It is also the reason why the head-rolling is so common in babies at the age where they are forced to figure out techniques for falling asleep without their mom's help.

Why shouldn't people be allowed to rock themselves to sleep once in a while?

40 year old male here whom has rocked them self to sleep also while sleeping will rock back and forth.
My twin sister and I both did it while we were kids till about 8 years old then she stopped, as far as I know.
One thing I read years ago was that there were a correlation between the rocking and one of the parents being an alcoholic.
No sure how true this is but I do know that my mother didn't start drinking till after her first 5 kids. I now know that she was drinking and smoking whilst pregnant with my twin sister I. We are the last of seven
Of course we were born premature as well.
Just throwing my personal life out there to see if any of it sounds familiar to anyone else on this thread.
I also have RLS which is currently very active my doctor and I are trying to combat the RLS which seems to be working however the treatments are not working for the rocking in my sleep.

Can anyone else relate ?

Rock on

I am a 39young male and I have rocked my head since I was 1 or 2 yo.my older brother slept in the same bed and loved when I rocked my head cause it helped him to sleep.only a very select few family members know this and I found out my aunt who was born def also rocks her head to sleep.now I read all of these and makes me feel better that I'm not the only one.wished I could find someone with this same habbit because it would make it so much easier to sleep instead tossing and turning all night.

I could cry. I am 35 and have swayed my entire life. It caused me much grief growing up as I remember sleep overs being an issue of contention and I was always embarrassed.

As a kid, I would sway side to side 24/7. I never realized I was doing it, I had no control over it, and I grew out of it by the age of 13. To this day, however, I will lay on my stomach and sway myself to sleep slightly propped up on my elbows with a small pillow tucked under my chin.
I have done this for 35 years and cannot stop. It was to the point where I would have love interests sleep in another room or on the couch so I could sway in peace or not explain. I played it off as either I couldn't share a bed with someone else or I played it off as a dominance card on boyfriends (depending on the situation).

Thankfully I have a husband of 7 years who sleeps like the dead and I am okay with swaying next to him.

There is just something so comforting about it and not being able to do it actually stresses me out.
Does anyone daydream while they sway?

I have always rocked myself to sleep every night since I was little (2,3) , but the difference is that I'm a side sleeper, so I lay on my arm to fall asleep. But another strange thing with my *condition* is that I need to listen to music, otherwise I get lonely and one of my biggest fears is being lonely. So is it right if I fall asleep listening to music (its automatic)? Please tell me. I'm a 19 year old and I'm pretty used to it. Thank you.

I am 42 and I have been rocking myself to sleep since I was an infant. Like everyone else, I am so relieved to know about others who do the same thing.
I rock my whole body one side at a time (left or right). I try to distribute the rocking evenly to both sides and I not only rock to go to sleep but also after waking up to enjoy some peaceful contemplation about life issues.
I began as an infant by rolling across the floor of a room before knowing how to crawl and also rocking in my crib. My mother would find the door of my bedroom blocked by the crib because I rocked it over and blocked the door.
I have often wondered if this behavior started because I was not held or paid enough attention to as a baby. My mother was an alcoholic and I have a brother who is 1 year older than me so the narrative that made the most sense to me was that between drinking and dealing with my older brother, that my mother didn’t give me enough physical attention during the first year of my life. The interesting thing about this behavior, that I am sure others could agree with, is that there is no way to go back and understand or analyze the origins.
Fast forward to the present and I have been married 15 years and I do not have any problem with my wife knowing about this behavior but I admit that I try not to expose her to it. I generally do not rock to sleep because I would disturb my wife’s sleep but when she gets up in the morning to shower for work I rock and love every second of it!
I am software developer who is unemployed right now. I may be starting up a blog or website to for us rockers. We need it. We are special because we have the ability to access or induce endorphins without the need for drugs or meditation. As soon as I rock back and forth about 3 or 4 times I feel positive and calm internally. It is borderline addictive. To me this is a great benefit and gift and with that I just have to say: Keep Rocking Folks!

Totally normal..

My preschool (in Belfast) used to have naptime at midday and I could never get to sleep.. one of the nursery nurses taught me to rock my head, and it worked.. I think it's a combination of the rhythmic movement and the white noise that does it for me..

I was about 4, I'm 43 and still do it..

The bad hair morning happens to guys too :)

I always thought I was the only one.

It has always take me very long to go to sleep. I am 17 and love rocking, have always been worried about how it might affect my future wife lol.

Now I'm learning it's completely normal. I secretly love it and listen to music and rock before I sleep, it's my favourite. However I only fall asleep after hours of rocking ah oh well

OMG....This is not the 1st time I've gooled " Why do I rock", previously I saw threads about RMS and typically children grow out of this in their teens, I'm 43 and still do it. I concluded this was quite isolated and I was one in a million...too embarrassed to go to the doctor as don't want/ need pills or talk about why, I do it...because I like it and agree its addictive/ habit!!!

I found this thread having seen my 10 year old Daughter rocking this week whilst closing her bedroom door and didn't want her to worry about this when she is older. Yes I've seen her doing this many times over the years assuming she'll be one of those who grow out of this.

I too hide/ refrain from the voluntary/ soothing rocking as I was often woken up or shouted to stop by my parents when camping or sharing a room and since many times find myself rocking when awakening, alerting myself to stop, cutting my sleep short.

My current job has meant working away a lot so I've been free to rock away, with or without music and its conjusive to a great rest/ sleeps but when at home at weekends I've felt like a coiled spring making any excuse to go to bed early (to rock and fall asleep before being joined), stay up late or go out so as to have a reason to sleep in the spare room to rock and fall asleep, not conjusive to a physical relationship.

I mentioned to my wife (whilst writing this post) about finding our daughter rocking and she said "she gets it from you"...WTF...I've been married 14 years and thought this was my unique hidden thing (my weirdness / secret) Clearly this is not been an issue for my wife as neither of us have acknowledged this but like snoring a better night sleep is had alone but when sharing there needs to be some consideration and acceptance that we are all unique and have our little ways.
I can't believe I've bottled this up and thought I was alone with this, at what point you raise this with a new Partner/ soon to be wife/ Husband I'm not one to ask...but the earlier we are accepted in a relationship warts and all the happier,open and honest that relationship will be!!

Good luck

p.s. I don't even like "Rock n Roll"....At least I can make fun of myself!!

Wow! Thank you! I thought there was something majorly wrong with me. I no longer rock myself to sleep, but I did, right up until I got married at 24. That was 43 years ago, so you know how long it's been on my mind.
