my Ds is 11.5 months and in the past few weeks has started to stick his fingers down his throat. he does it until he gags and thn smiles at me. I have stopped reacting to it as initially i would say don't do that but i think that just made him do it more - hence the smile when he's done it. He doesn't make himself sick but i am worried about why he is doing it. Is this normal? Is it just a form of exploration?
sandy mine does this too - he's 13m now but has been doing it for a couple of months. We look at him and say "No!!!!!" and like yours he just takes them out and grins. The little b**ger! Think it's normal, altho DS1 didn't do it (he just sticks his finger up his bum and smells it. Yuk! That's boys for you.)
