My 10 month old son Lucas is obsessed with tags on things, from toys to diapers etc. He sucks and chews on them and always manges to find tags on everything. I was very concerned the other day when he actually chewed off a tag from on of his soft toys. Should I be concerned or is this my son just being curious and exploring?
LOL I thought my baby was the only one who loved tags!!! The tag on my boppy is almost ripped off from him playing with it! He also can find the tags on anything--from blankets to toys.For some reason he just loves tags!! I think it's pretty funny, and definitely not something to worry about.
Of course, if he is able to get a tag completely OFF, he could choke. And then YES, that is something to worry about. But if you are right with him, and he is just playing or mouthing the tag on an item, then I think he is just fine.
