really gross PLEASE help!

so, my oldest son went poopoo and I had no idea, then my 10 month old snuck in, opened up the lid of the potty (baby potty) and got into it... some of it in his mouth!!! I washed him off of course, but what else should I do? It can't be good to digest poop right?!?

  • Lmbo. Sorry but I know I'd freak out in that same situation, which is why I laughed. Brush his mouth of course with toothpaste. I don't think it will hurt him to eat feces. Its pretty much just broken down food.

  • It actually is full of e-coli. I would contact your doctor or poison center.

  • rkoloms is right. My daughter got an ecoli infection at 8 weeks old just from sitting in a poopy diaper for like 10 minutes before I realized it was dirty. You should deffinatly call your doctor!

  • I don't think its that big a deal just rinse his mouth out of course and wash him off, make sure you clean out his mouth as good as you can then "brush" his teeth with a little bit of toothpaste to get the germs out, he should be fine. As nasty as it is I don't think it will be a big deal unless your older son had an infection of some kind.
