Is it a norm for a 8 month old baby to put toys into their mouth? I read that that is how baby senses n explore the things around them. Their mouth is like their senses . Is it true? Cos my baby will be gg to infant care this fri and I worry that by putting toys etc into his mouth , he will fall sick easily. How to prevent him from putting toys into his mouth ?
