  • For general information about eating moldy bread:,1258,article~11318,00.html

    "Eating moldy bread certainly isn't recommended. If you're otherwise healthy, however, it's not likely to make you sick.

    Rarely, certain molds may produce mycotoxins that can cause illness. These mycotoxins are poisonous substances found mainly in grains and nuts. Moldy bread may contain bacteria that could cause a food-borne illness as well.

    There's no need to call your doctor about the moldy bread unless you develop symptoms of illness. Be on the lookout for:

    * nausea
    * vomiting
    * diarrhea
    * abdominal pain or cramping
    * fever"

    From what I could find online, it won't hurt the baby.
