I don't remember having this much of a problem with big L, and when she was an infant, I had dogs and all that comes with that experience.
I don't know what to do about l's issue, I know she will eventually outgrow it, but it worries me that she will choke. Yesterday I was chopping carrot for soup and dropped two little circles on the floor. I immediately looked for them to pick them up. Finding only one, I thought maybe I was wrong about dropping two. Twenty minutes later, I noticed that l was chewing on something, only to find my missing carrot. Thankfully she did not choke.
Other than trying to be careful I am not sure what else I can do at this point to protect her. She just seems to like chewing on things for long periods, and she will chew on whatever she finds. Our house is not dirty, but I do have a six year old fond of leaving crumbs everywhere. What does everyone else do?
