Everything in mouth?

When do toddlers stop putting everything in their mouths?! My son is almost 11 months and has had 8 teeth for a couple months now. He still loves to chew and feel textures (especially fabrics?) on his teeth. Of course, ANYTHING & EVERYTHING goes in the mouth. When does this subside?! At what point will he not want to gnaw on my keys and cellphone?! Haha.

  • Well my son is a little over two and he dtill puts things in his mouth. It's gotten better over the past couple of months, but he still chews on my cell phone antenna and he has a bad habit of putting coins in his mouth... So I can say that eventually he'll grow out of it, but I don't know when....
