my 20 month old toddler always has her hands in her mouth! even when not teething they still are there, she plays in her mouth, or something??? does anyone else have a toddler that deos this, or know why???? i thought it might be a nervous thing, but she does it even at home alone too.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

My 18 month old stil puts his hands in his mouth but at least its not everything in sight anymore!! I don't know when it will stop, although I have read around age 3, but I bite my nails, chew pen caps, always need a piece of gum in my mouth, so maybe it won't stop........be a stickler about hand washing!! :)

Oh, she's probably still teething. They continue to put stuff in their mouths until almost 3 years old. I still catch my 4 year old chewing on things occasionally (blankets mostly). Totally normal. :)
