My daughter eats hair, my hair, her stuffed animals, toys with hair, does anyone else have this problem? Or does anyone know why she does this?

My son loves hair too. He will find one strand and rub it between his teeth. I have know idea why he likes this but I figure he will stop doing at some point. I have noticed that the older he gets the less he does it.

It could be sensory. Some children have some sensory (chewing, touch, etc) problems. Sometimes a child may chew on things to satisfy the need of whatever need it is If she continues just ask the Dr. Maybe he can help.
