My almost 10 month old has started licking everything? He licks windows, people, toys, dvd cases, you name it he licks it!!! Why has he started this and when will it stop? Should I try and discourage it? If so how?

Haha, thats so cute. Haha, I think its ok. I think the less you make of it the sooner and easier it will go away. Hes just figuring out stuff his own way!

Haha, my 6 month old daughter likes to lick everything, from the floor to my leg. And it tickles! I wouldn't worry, they're both at the age where everything goes to their mouths because that's where they have the most sensation.

My daughter did the same thing. They stop after awhile. It's similar to them putting everything in their mouth....it's their way to explore the world around them. Even though it's gross, LOL!
