So my DS is now 18 months and with this age has come with some gross new behaviors. I'm not sure that I've ever heard of my friends kids doing stuff like this or maybe they're not admitting it
-during nappy change reaching down to get bum cream or baby powder on his fingers then quickly pulling out his dummy and licking his fingers.
-mostly during clothes/nappy changes but not limited to, inspecting his feet and picking off anything on them and eating that.
- we've had to take away his bath toys as he is using them as a cup and drinking his bath water.
He's well fed and also is being given his sippy cup in the bath to drink from if he's thirsty. Maybe this is normal for some kids but I'm pretty disgusted.
Is this normal?

Is this normal or is my DS just gross.

My DS was always keen on drinking the bath water around that age. He stopped doing it pretty fast and I never really bothered about it (except to say that's gross).
If I told him now (at age 4) that he used to do that he would be horrified :-)

Drinking the bathwater was pretty big here too! That sounds pretty normal (albeit gross!) to me for an 18mth old.

My 2 year old likes drinking the bath water. Thinks it's great, doesn't seem to bother him if I remind him he's peed in it either, he's not as keen on drinking water with bubbles in it.

DS drinks the bath water. I tried to stop him but I gave up when I realised he wouldn't stop.
He doesn't get cream or anything and lick it off but it wouldn't surprise me if he tried.
Never seen him inspect his feet like you say your DS does but DS does chew on his toes on a regular basis.
He also likes to play and try to drink out of the dogs water bowl outside when I'm not looking, he gets over it.
He's a gross kid lol oh well.

I think all kids try & drink bathwater.
My Ds grabs the baby powder container and licks the top.
Actually he licks a lot of stuff lately that i think is gross mostly cause his sisters laugh at him which eggs him on
