Hi guys, I really hope someone can help me here, My 1 yr old daughter constantly chews her cot to the point it actually looks like a puppy has had a go at it!! She pulls off the plastic sheild that ate on there even the ones the cot was built with, im really worried she is going to get splinters soon, has anyone else had this problem?? I really dont know what else to do.
oh sounds familiar my daughter has something the docter refers to as Apeaka ( not sure of spelling)
She knaws on wood (side of bed all knawed)
She also tries to eat chalk, dried paint, stones and dirt.
They gave her blood dests to make sure she was not iron defficient, she is not he says she should grow out of it.
At one year it may be because of teething though, does she eat other strange things?
it is worrying when they get a mouthful of something not edible. Not really sure what to suggest about the cot.
We went on holiday 2 christmas's ago we got a call after leaving the villa saying there were knaw marks all over the bunk bed and they were going to have to replace it LOL!!!! quite embarassing cant take her anywhere.
