When will she stop putting everything in her mouth?

My DD is 15 months old and still puts everything in her mouth - and has now started licking things. I understand she needs to explore her world and part of that means tasting things, but how long does this go on? I'd love for her to draw with crayons rather than eating them...

  • Good luck! Just keep working with her on it and hopefully she will eventually stop. I still catch my 2.5 year old tasting crayons. Yuck! lol.

  • She'll stop when she start learning what things are wihout having to taste them first.

  • my dd is 22 months old and she still put's every thing in her mouth! If you wants her to color with crayons just sit beside her and when ever she goes to put it in her mouth then tell her not yucky! and show her she has to color with it! Good Luck!
