  • DD used to lick the hot oven :/
    so yeah, i think its normal

    wait until they get into the "i am a dog/cat" phase and try to clean you- ickies :)

  • Yes. Babies have more nerve endings in their tongues. That's how they explore everything- shapes, textures, etc.

  • My 2-yr old son likes to pretend he's our dog or our cat and will come lick my arm or foot or whatever he can reach... It's very normal... kids are weird ;)

  • yes it is and I found that it was harder to get them to stop licking everthing so what I have done is find something they really really do not like and first I worn them if that still does not work I give them I finger full of the stuff that do not like and tell them ucky and I repeat it evertime they do it and they will evenchly stop doing that I have learned from experince, good luck friend
