My dearest daughter (2.5 years old) has gotten into the habit of shouting lick lick loudly and then wildly licking absolutely everything and anything! I find it quite disgusting and when she tries to lick me I put her away from me and tell I don't like it. She'll stop after a while but then starts up again.
Please someone tell me this is a toddler thing and will pass soon or if you have some great ideas to keep her from it please say.
Imagine my embarrasment standing in a shop and discovering that she's licking shopwindows and merchandise =)
the bad news?
ds2 is 3.5 and still wildly orally fixated, except now instead of licking it's spitting, utterly utterly gross.
he also sticks everything in his mouth - yesterday he went a bit quiet, i looked over and he's got a lego brick (duplo) stuck in his gob.
DS 2.5 does lot's of licking, but only when he is being a dog (which is far too often). Have never had to deal with licking of random objects! It's usually my face. I refuse when he asks me to lick him, though
Ds2 licked everything in sight from 3 until he was 4.5 - even getting his tongue stuck to a freezer in Iceland didn't stop him. He seems to have grown out of it now (nearly 5) but he does still have the odd lick of the counter in the butcher's for some reason. Horrible while it lasts but they do grow out of it.
