At what age do children become aware of smells?
Our 6yr old told us tonight that he can't smell his own farts.
I kind of figured that because it doesn't seem to phase him when he's sitting in a cloud of them and the rest of us are dying.
But when asked a few more questions he says he can't smell anything.
Recently my DS2 sprayed perfume all over himself but when I asked DS1 why he didn't come tell me, he said he didn't smell it.
Is that normal?
I always thought children could smell but just weren't as bothered by pongs like adults are.
It's just that he's a really bad eater too and I'm wondering now if the two go hand in hand.
DH asked him tonight to describe the taste of his food and he described the texture instead.
Am I worrying about nothing?
