Pica

Every baby and toddler has put none food items in their mouth one time or another.
Some like to eat dirt, paper, clay, paint ect. Although this is normal, if this keeps occuring after 18-30 months, talk to your doctor. Your toddler could have PICA disorder.

    My son feels the need to eat dirt but has only done it twice and realized the second it did not taste better than the first. He ran to his water table to rinse his hands and mouth. Lol

    And all the while we are saying, "No, icky! Take that out of your mouth" or "No, don't put that in your mouth." Lol
