Re: 2.5 years old bite herself

You'll feel so much better once you've ruled out the possibility that she's a vampire.

Re: 2.5 years old bite herself

I wonder also if perhaps if there is a bit of a scar inside her mouth from that cut and she's nibbling at it out of boredom or fascination (or bored fascination )

I have some raised bumps inside my cheeks since as long as I can remember... and I tend to nibble at them when my brain is either idle (watching TV, reading, etc etc - things that don't require "conscious" thought) or I'm concentrating on something, also since as long as I can remember.

Of course, one nibble too hard or too "deep" and the blood is there... rather not have it personally though because then it swells and I'm more likely to bite it unintentionally.

The only possibilities I can see is:

1- She is a vampire,
2- She needs iron,
3- She is at an early stage of OCD.

I'll get a doctor's appointment.
Defo not coming to stay until you've ruled out no 1!
Tell us how you get on at the doc's.

Re: 2.5 years old bite herself

Hi Nil,

I agree with Memonge. To me it sounds like she is a little worked up about something. Kids get like this so easily as the big bad world changes from time to time and there is nothing they can do about it. It can be confusing and worrying for little ones. Things that seem insignificant to us and we probably wouldn't notice can seem like a massive thing for kids.

I know you said that Princess did it before you were pregnant but maybe there was some other stress at that time in her life?

At the moment she has a new brother on the way, a new country to move to (and she probably notices Mummy and Daddy being a bit more stressed than usual even if you do try and keep it hidden from her) and she's got to the age where she starts to question everything.

I really wouldn't worry but agree that a trip to the doc won't do any harm and will put your mind at rest.

P.S I hope she is not a member of the Twilight gang otherwise that offer of babysitting if you need a break is void

Re: 2.5 years old bite herself

She doesn't pick a ''snack'' in her cheeks all the time but more randomly. I will ask the doctor, I am just hoping he will not laugh at me...
