my little boy loves to scratch surfaces!!! — The Bump
Babies: 6 - 9 Months

my little boy loves to scratch surfaces!!!

he must love to texturize with his fingers but he loves to scratch sheets, pillow, boppy, clothes, arms, legs, etc.

anyone else have a baby that does this?

  • All the time!  He uses his index finger to feel everything!

  • Yep, he does it all the time!  He scratches his sheet when falling asleep.  I can hear it over the monitor.  He always scratches my clothes, too, and the furniture, walls, etc...

    Ditto.  I can hear him scratching in the middle of the night while he's asleep!!

  • YES!!!  DS has been doing this for about a week now....he wants to touch my face constantly while trying to drink a bottle.  And then wants to grab at my shirt and pants.  And then he will check out the chair and the pillows.  I think he is just figuring out that he can grab things and they each have a different feeling to it?!?!
  • YEP, everything...even our faces! :)

  • Totally! DH's theory is that he is an alien from another planet and the scratching is his way of testing materials here as alternate fuel sources so that when he returns to his home planet, he can tell his fellow aliens whether there is anything worth invading Earth for.

    Your DH is very creative, he should write children's stories!

    Tegan scratches everything, touches everything, grabs for everything and LOVES my hair. I love seeing her explore her world, but I think I'll be happy when she finally understands the word, "No"

  • P does this all the time. When he's sleepy he starts scratching above his eyes and the back of his head. It cracks me up.

    Yup, and he often splits his thumbnail from all the scratching!

    OMG this exactly... and he scratches his face when he's about to pass out if were holding him, if he's laying down in his crib he scratches his sheet.
