    Ear fetish

    My little niece loves ears! Whenever someone holds her she goes right for their ear and picks at it continually. She is now 2 1/2 and has always done this. Other than this strange habit, she seems perfectly normal. Has anyone ever heard of something like this?

    I seriously doubt that this really would turn out to be some sort of major issue,or kind of obsession.It could be that she just sees peoples ears as rather fascinating.And she IS afterall sitting right there looking at them.you will find that when it comes to children,espescially toddlers,they can find the most ridiculous and unimportant things just incredibly fascinating.i doubt there is really any sort of a problem brewing.One day,she will just stop her exploring and move onto the next newest thing that catches her eye.Kids are just,well, wierd when it comes to all of these new and exciting things in their world.Just watch and enjoy the show.have fun while they are at this stage,god they grow sooo incredibly fast.my youngest 'baby' turned 18 this year,wow,where DID those years go?Marcia

    My 21 month old is obsessed with feet. Her feet, my feet, daddy's feet, the cat's feet...you name it she loves em, lol. I think your niece's ear thing is just a passing phase....every child has something they are fasinated with. I agree with feelbad.

    Re: Ear fetish

    Thanks for your replies. It eases my mind. One member of our family suggested that this might be a sign of autism but since she acts like any typical toddler, I didn't really think so. Thanks again.
