DS (3.5) NEVER put anything in his mouth he didn't need to. He never posted anything. He never fiddled in drawers. POnce told no, he stopped opening cupboards.
DD (13months) is a monster. I jsut found her in the garden eating a rotten apple. She eats pebbles, grass, leaves, cigarette butts (one the beach), a dead cockroach (to be fir she must have spat it out fairly fast). She constantly goes in my bedside table no matter how mny times she is told off. She posts stuff. she puts things in bins (hence she only owns one shoe). aaaaaaaaaarrrgh. I think I may go mad. I'm worried she'll eat something in teh garden and I won't see it. Will rotten mouldy apples do her any harm? She'll have a constitution like a bloody horse if it doesn't kill her!
DS1 put everything in his mouth - except food obviously which he still seems to have a big problem with , DS2 never out anything in there although he does suck his thumb (does that have anything to do with it?)
DS3 doesn't put things in his mouth but fiddles with everything (he currentl has all the saucepans out on the kitchen floor)
We are past that stage, but you remind me I was quite disgusted but the things DSs would put in their mouths: "Spit it out!! It's a fly!" Once I caught DS1 eating the window sill, on closer inspection I saw he had done it before, when we moved out of that house we had to pay for the damage
My 2 are exactly the same.Ds1 never put anything in his mouth,but ds2 is the complete opposite.So far he's tried eating cat food,cat litter,grass,soil,cotton,post it notes and will pull leaves off any plants that he happens to crawl past and stick them in his mouth too.He even crawls around all day with toys hanging out of his mouth.
