    Default need more fiber?

    im thinking dd may need more because SHE KEEPS EATING PAPER

    i was typing a thread and she got into an envelope, i took it from her and she had taken a huge bite out of it! when i tried to get it out of her mouth, she kept moving back and forth and finally swallowed it!

    this is not the first time she got paper, but the first time she swollowed it... i don't know what i'm going to do with her...

    It's common and then they will stop doing that when they get older. My boy did that too and I was so worried but now he knows that paper is for tearing and writing, not for eating

    she should be ok...
    if the worse thing she ever eats is paper she'll be lucky....


    One of my older ones ate the elastic string of a candy necklace.
    I had to call the doctor on that one.
    She laughed at me, it will come right out the other end..
    and it did.

    that's funny! today she got teh knob off of my dresser! (don't ask me how) and then found her daddys belt buckle... so she switched from fiber to metals... but i think that she liked it because it was cold and she is teething!
