  • I doubt she ate too much, I would assume she was jut playing in it, and probably it wouldn't taste to good.

  • I must be the only mom that never had this happen. (Thank heavens!!) And seeing how he's 17 now, it seems unlikely that he will!

  • She should be fine. Call your pediatrician if she develops any unusual or unexplainable symptoms.

  • your infant got her own diaper off, potentially at her own poop, and this was the first place you came? poor kid. should have called the doctor immediately if you were truly worried.
