  • Because he is a baby? They don't use much logic, they just do

  • Because he/she is exploring the world, and lotion probably smells good.

  • My guess would be because it smells good. My 2 year old daughter ate some grape scented chapstick tonight, not too much of it cause I caught her. She was hiding behind a rocking chair in her room...but it smells yummy...surely it tastes yummy too.
