Foster's got pica. almost 3 and still eating dirt, some bugs, loves chalk and erasers. it comes and goes in fx. Now I am wondering about lead....He has a speech delay, bouts of hyperactivity and he's a pale little guy w/ a poor appetite. I have felt crazy at times dealing with his behavior changes and frustrated at his persistence in eating "non-food" items not "real" food.....So tomorrow it's off to the pedi for blood work.
yup, the lightbulb finally went off over my head....poor guy. hate blood draws on little ones
anyone have any experience with lead toxicity or pica?
send some good vibes my way
