Why do babies love tags so much?

posted in: Lifestyle 6

What is up with babies and tags?! Does anyone know?

If Haddie spots a tag across the room, she will b-line for it like a bat out of hell. Once she gets there, the tag is magnetically drawn to her mouth; she just loves sucking on them.

Sucking on a delicious tag

Last week she found a small one on the bottom of a footstool, and put her head on the floor floor to eat it until I pushed the tag under the stool so she couldn’t see it.

Of course, I want to give her the best of the best, so I decided to splurge and buy her a Mary Meyer Taggies toy with a dozen tags on it for her to suck on. Let me tell you, this toy was not cheap – $30! Of course, to this day she has only sucked on the one real tag out of all the fake tags – how does she tell this difference?

There is so much in the world for her to try and eat, why go for the tags??! Does anyone know why babies are obsessed with tags??

    Hahahahaha! This is amazing! My baby LOVES tags to this point where, if this keeps up, I’m going to throw her a tag-themed birthday party.

    In short, no. I don’t know why they love tags so much. Thanks for steering me away from the tag monkey!

      I really tired getting her to love that tag-monkey. But, she saw right through it’s fake tags.

    I realize this is a year later, but my son (6 months right now) loves tags! Big tags, little tags, soft tags, rough tags. All of them! He too can tell the difference between an overpriced tag toy and a genuine product tag. I just gave up and make sure the tags are attached well and let him go to town with a close eye.

    My grandson is obsessed with Tags as well. There doesn’t seem to be any answer. I worry about the ink, but the pediatrician says he will be fine. We too have spent s100s of dollars on fake taggy toys and he will ONLY suck the REAL tag. Simply amazes me.

      Interestingly, my son wasn’t as obsessed with tags as my daughter was.
