Is this a thing that they do?

I've never seen it before. 22mo DD will walk around with her eyes closed. She squeezes them shut and totters off. Sometimes she asks to be led around by the hand, sometimes she just walks - or runs! - into things. I have never come across this before. Anyone else?

I've got a 19 month old who puts blankets/wraps over her head, giggles like a maniac and then runs around the room (inevitably running into things)... other than that she seems pretty normal, so I figure it's just her being silly and messing around.. almost like experimenting with her sight etc.
I probably wouldn't worry about it too much!

Same as Zigwah - my 20 month old will put a blanket on her head or even pull her shirt up over head and run around - she thinks its hilarious!!

Sounds like your DD is a bit more advanced 0 she has worked out she can close her eyes and doesn't need to put something over them

Yep all mine have done it, ds (2 1/2) still does it occasionally with a blanket over his head

They all walked backwards and on their toes as well, not at the same time though wink.gif
