Ds's Dr called me today and asked me to come in this morning. We went over lab work and stuff. Dr told me my son has pica. And he was just going on about safety and other stuff. Now I know pica is no big deal but it is to me. He upgraded from being a goat to having pica. It hurts to see my son eating stuff he is not supposed too. Right before his dr's appointment last week he ate some bathroom cleaner. That was the last straw. I cried. It's scary what he eats and I do my very best to put stuff up. Paper especially. To actually know what he has is a relief but it scares me to death I have to be a helicopter parent now because he might find something and eat it. Mommas I am scared

Have his iron levels checked. Some studies have linked pica with an iron deficiency

Ya. It's not his iron levels. It's that he has a mineral definicy so we have to do our best to make sure he has to get that mineral.

Im sorry. My ODS still does things like this. But not eating them. He will lick the toilet seat. And chew batteries. I never know what he has in his mouth. It freaks me out, I have to watch him constantly.

We need to get him evaluated, and I need to make it a priority.
