Obsessed with ICE..help

my daughter loves to eat Ice, i know it can be bad for her teeth, but I have started to break it up for her so she is not biting down on it! Why in the world does she like ice so much. She has all of her teeth but her 2 year molars so could it be teething. She will scream to me ICE and if I don't get it she gets so upset....I mean it is ridiculous. So is Aspen the only one with a ICE fetish or what? obsessed

  • My son is the same way. It can be a sign of anemia, so you may want to have her checked. I know I get the same urges to chew ice as my two year old little man does, but my teeth are too sensitive. We both take iron-fortified vitamins, and if your DD is anemic, her pediatrician can prescribe good vitamins. Best of luck, with anemia and her teeth, lol.

  • As the ppsaid- ANEMIA! Is she getting enough green vegetables? If not, try giving her some polyvisol and the ice cravings will stop pretty quickly.
