Plugging his ears..

Lately my 20 month old son is walking around with his fingers in both ears. He isn't acting like they hurt and he is not running a fever. Sometimes when he does it, he talks to himself. Is this just a new trick he's learned?

  • He's figured out things sound different when he plugs his ears. Id say it's a normal behavior of him discovering how his body works.

  • My kids all did that around a year and a half too - very normal! (And funny, IMO!)
