My 16 month old son is insistant on touching other kids on their face as he walks by them. Nothing aggresive, and sometimes it's like he isn't even aware he is doing it. Sometimes he is more determined than others. He grazes thier face and continues on his way. Any ideas why???

I have noticed all babies go for the face first. I always assumed it was bc the face is the most interesting thing on the body, it moves and smiles, has eyes and noses. Idk, I will check back to see what others say.

it is a normal part of development my daughter has been doing the same thing when we are in public I gently remind her not to touch and instead have her say hi to the children
