I found my dd chewing a claw from our cat- gross I know, she also lies on her belly and puts her arms under the dishwasher to retrieve cat biscuits, she eats, on average, one cat biscuit a day, I know thi is not normal but please make me feel better!

I used to eat cat biscuits through choice as a kid. Can't think why, but my sisters and I were often to be found with the box!

Oh my god please dont worry. My dd 22 months is goint through a stage of taking her dirty nappies off in the mornings and putting her hands in it and then it goes in her mouth. Thats what you should be worried about lol. I am trying to stop it. Any ideas wouldn't go a miss!! xx

Another one for cat biscuits too! Also any little stray bit of cat litter she can find despite the fact I hoover the kitchen floor twice a day she can still find any stray bits. Most gross thing so far is cat sick, one of the cats were sick I hadn't spotted it yet, yet she was sitting in amongst it yuck.

Ds has eaten all sorts of disgusting things and he also usde to take off his dirty nappy and put his hands in it and paint it all over the wall, his bed, his toys and the carpet. It got so bad that we had to take the wall paper off the walls and have the room replastered

One of the most disgusting things I have seen him do is when I was on the phone. I looked up at him in the lounge and could see him drinking something out of his beaker. I couldn't see very well as it was dark but I was pretty sure it had a yellowy tint to it and i knew it had been empty only a few minutes before.

Sure enough when i asked him what he was drinking he very cheerfully informed me that it was his 'wee wee'

children haven't eaten anything worse than catfood but dog once ate live maggots (belonging to fisherman in park) and used tampons which had been flushed down the loo, come up into an overflow system in the back yard (student shared house days). dog then "passed" the used tampons very publicly while walking in the street.

My ds puts his finger under the soap powder drawer on the washing machine and licks any excess residue off!! I caught him the other day dunking his toothbrush down the toilet and then proceed to shove it in his mouth, he has also in the past eaten sand, mud and soil. Dh was showing him a ladybird one day and tried to pop it in his mouth too. Disgusting child

Well, when dd was a baby she crawled out onto our deck and put into her mouth a bit of dead mouse the cat had left there...!

My LO keeps catching and eating Dady-long-legs. Fine as long as he keeps them away from me!

Woodlice were a staple in DD2's diet for some time (particularly the ones with the yellow crawly things underneath). Don't know how many half-eaten ones I fished out of her mouth!

amy2310 does she have clothes over her nappy??? If not I would suggest putting on some type of nightclothes she can't get off herself. Other option would be to set alarm to try to catch her in time before she does it.

A slug. yeuukkkkkk!!!!

mymama Wed 28-Sep-05 14:41:38

A Big Mac.

No, just kidding. As if I would let him eat a Big Mac.

Fennel and amynnixmum ROFL
I tried bonios when I was a child, and my best friend's ds once consumed what seemed like a large quantity of Carex

Yep my brother and I used to eat the dog biscuits, my brother prefered the black ones !!

DS doesn't have much of a habbit of eating livestock yet, but a little one at his nursery will put anything and everything in her mouth, if they have been doing something unusual there is usually a story of such and such eating it her mum just laughs at her .

crikey, i thought ds might win this contest, having eaten a dead fly and chicken poo, but after reading about your little ones noshing on cat sick and dead mice, I think he's got no chance.

DD has eaten her own poo, well she spat it out if we are being technically accurate
