It is common in children of such age. try not to leave anything on the floor. keep out of reach from your child. you can only prevent his access to those things. as he grows up it will be fine.

A good suggestion from my side if you accept, you can apply bitter gourd juice to all the substances he puts in his mouth, this will develop aversion towards putting the things in the mouth.
