I have a girl who is 4 in April and who is still putting things in her mouth, this might be dirt, bits off the floor, hair, toys, her fingers. No matter what tack I've tried with her she still does this and is driving me mad. She also has a strange obsession with 'spoons'. Mom and Dad almost encourage the fingers and spoon thing but the other bits my worry is she is going to end up choking. I'm thinking there is some sort of oral stimulation thing and have read of some non-toxic bands that can be used to chew on to distract from the other things. Does anyone have any ideas?

We had a similar situation a couple of years ago. The child would put everything in her mouth including chalk, dirt, paint etc. after lots of tests it turned out she had very low iron levels. After some supplements she stopped putting things in her mouth. Might be worth suggesting she has a blood test and then go from there. X
