Why does my baby want to put everything in her mouth?

In brief: The mouth is...
...The major sensory organ for small children, and since food is close to the top of a very short list of needs that babies have, the question, "is it edible?", is a very important one to every baby.
"is it fashionable to wear" and "does it have 4g" are questions that come up at a somewhat later age.

In brief: Exploring
Babies use all of their senses to explore their environment.
Remember, your baby is encountering things for the first time. Babies use their mouths to explore new objects- it's a normal developmental stage- enjoy watching it. Just make sure that the objects they are putting in their mouth are safe! the link below is for choking prevention: http://www.Cpnonline.Org/crs/crs/pa_prevchok_hhg.Htm.
