Is this normal?

My DD loves to eat paper! I can't keep it around her or she rips it up and then tries to eat it (I always take it out of her mouth and tell her we don't eat paper). This started when she was like ten months old and I found a piece of her book (there's a wocket in my pocket) in her diaper... Hadn't realized she ate it!
Any suggestions for getting her to stop?

  • I dont know what to tell you about how to get her to stop... I know DD and DS went through a stage... I honestly thought we had mice with DS cause he would nibble on EVERYTHING, I am pretty sure it is just a stage but if you are really worried about it call your ped and ask the medical assistant...
