It is very normal for babies to put things into their mouth. This habit can continue till they are 3 or 4 years sometimes. My tips for you: Please be patient. Keep safe and clean toys around her. Keep some pieces of silk or cotton cloth for her to chew on. She may like different textures. Keep away things dangerous stuff. She will keep coming back to biting things. Use a calm voice, remove the toy and distract her. Tell her good /very good when she plays with something. Instead of telling her not to bite, tell her what she can do. This is a natural phase and very slowly children will get out of it. Also please check with a pediatrician if she needs to be de-wormed.
