Does your baby??

Manage to find the smallest spec of ANYTHING to put in their mouths??? ugh.. I swear I could vacuum this house 10 times a day and my 8 mo old dd would STILL find fuzz or something to put in her mouth! THe other day she crawled over to the couch and was picking lint off the couch and eating it! lol

  • My neice was like this but thankfully my son never was. For the most part he was always good about not putting things in his mouth, he was just into everything else lol. But yeah my neice on the other hand at anything and everything! It's not uncommon.

  • Saddamarie- thats what dd does!! she just digs and digs at teh carpet until she digs up *something*, which is usually my hair lol. it is crazy! And she is stubborn too! if I take something away from her she tries to get it, or she just finds the next best thing.

  • Yep. They are lower to the ground with better eyesight, bottomless curiosity, and endless drive to explore. They are little exploring scientists. They are doing their feild study intership and do not like to have their samples tampered with or confiscated.

  • Yes my son just turned 7mo and he is the same way. I clean the floor at lest 3 times a day (just before I put him down) and I lock up the cat (so I can have at lest 1 cat hair free room for two hours) And he STILL will find something to pick up.... even when I am crawl on the floor with him.
