Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Wierd Cravings?

It's called "pica". Make sure you tell your doctor about it as soon as possible. It can mean there are problems with your mineral levels and possibly some sort of imbalance with your hormones. Do not wait to get it checked out. And try REALLY hard not to give in to the chalk craving. Who knows what they put in that stuff. Good luck :)
