    We also have to keep it locked away as he will sneak in and just eat a tube. : /
    Hmm, my at times, feral children seem to have a toothpaste sucking, grape eating addiction... Suddenly alarm bells are ringing! Vegemite I knew was on a failsafe diet list, grapes no, toothpaste suckers just hadn't registered!

I'm 8 weeks pregnant and totally at my wits end. We haven't changed anything in our lifestyle or approach to him. Is this just a stage Or something more ? Bedtime is usually a story, kiss and light off with the door open. Tonight he screamed hit, spat and dry wreached for 45 mins all the while I'm trying to calm him. Any advice ?
    Sounds like typical behaviour at that age to me. Sounds all too familiar except our ds started such behaviour at 3yrs, you will be surprised at how your pregnancy may affect him, we found when the new addition arrived his behaviour was at its worst but 6mths on and we have our angel back

    Are you serious....? Mine was addicted. Like, seriously. I wrote to Sue Dengate about it and it all just fell into place..
    He's eaten (inhaled) grapes the last two days (don't ask) and its been a nightmare.

    Yes I'm serious. Sorry if it sounded like I wasnt.

    My kids beg to brush their teeth and have 'second rounds'. Here I have been thinking whoopie kids that aren't a pita to brush teeth!

    I'm removing the toothpaste from the Santa stockings as I type

    Anyway - apologies jacksmuma, toothpaste 'reforming mother of toothpaste addicted toddlers' has hijacked your thread.

    Holy moly - what's this about grapes, Vegemite & toothpaste?? DS is 2.5 and has meltdowns all the time. He loves those foods and I have caught him eating toothpaste a few times. Hmm??!

    2 of my DD's eat these foods and DONT have the meltdowns so looks like it depends on your child.

    Maybe you should try herbal toothpaste? I started using it and it has all natural ingredients, tastes fine and has added calcium for healthy teeth. It's in most supermarkets (I get mine from Coles/woolies in the normal toothpaste section, usually down the bottom). Maybe its worth checking out for you ladies that have toothpaste addicted munchkins, as that really can't be healthy with all that junk in it!!!

    Sorry OP, off-topic I know but just thought I'd throw my two cents in!
