I like taking DD outside but all she wants to do is sit there and eat the grass. A few times I'd take the grass away and "trade" for another toy and say "ew icky, you don't want to eat grass", so she stopped grabbing it with her hands and just stuck her face in it like she was grazing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Seriously, she'll just lay there with her face in the grass and munch away if I let her.<br><br>
How do you get out and about with your baby and keep them interested enough in other stuff not to eat the shrubbery?

My baby loves to feel the grass, pull at it, stick some in his mouth, etc. He hasn't actually *eaten* any yet, but I figure it's probably cleaner than lots of things - well, maybe not cleaner but less germy. Keep an eye open for bugs, though.

i never stopped alice from eating grass (or dirt or sand or rocks) and she realized pretty quickly that they don't taste good.
