Women craves different things when pregnant, some crave pickles when pregnant, but that was when an English mother of five developed a taste for toilet paper. Read more on Huff’Post:
The 25-year-old mother from Gainsborough, UK, has five children, but developed the bizarre craving while carrying her youngest child, 15-month-old Jaxon.
“Two months into the pregnancy, I started craving toilet roll. I still don’t know why,” she said, according to the Lincolnshire Echo. “I like the feeling of the texture in my mouth, rather than the taste. I like the dryness. My family tell me it isn’t very good for me – but I can’t help it.”
It might seem hard to swallow, but Sylvester said she cannot tear herself away from the TP treat, but waits until she needs to answer nature’s call before giving into her crappy cravings.
“Today I try and hold off going to the bathroom because I know if I go I will eat the paper,” she said, according to the Mirror. “I usually eat around eight pieces per visit — sometimes I go to the bathroom just to get some toilet roll. It does fill me up quite a bit. At first I used to eat a couple of squares at a time, but I keep eating more and more.”
Sylvester estimates she eats up to a roll of toilet paper each day, and worries she may have a problem.
