Baby what do you have in your mouth?

My 2 1/2 year old puts all kinds of stuff in his mouth. He really likes rocks. What can I do to get him to stop. I caught him with a light bulb in his mouth last week! So far he hasn't swallowed anything but I worry all the time.

  • id make sure nothing is within reach of him to be able to do so for starters.. and then id just keep an eye, at 2 1/2 he is old enough to punish him for doing it. id put my dd in time out for 2 minutes.. thats just me idk if you would feel comfortable doing it with your son though. good luck! im so glad my dd hasnt gone through that phase.. YET! lol

  • My boys have a fettish with putting rocks in their mouth too, one thing that helps me keep them out of their mouth is throwing rocks in a puddle or ditch
