My 2 yr old will try and lick of the bubbles in her bath tub, or she will lick off lotion when I spread it on her after a bath or just cause, she also will eat ice cubes out of my glass of what ever I am drinking at the time. Is this normal? Or is this a symptom of PICA?

  • I doubt she has pica.

  • Given her age I think it's pretty normal, probably not pica. I have to say that I've thought the same thing when I caught my 2 year old eating crayons the other day though. lol
