Just coincidence(sp?) or is he really sick?

I have this pack of multicultural crayons. It is all different skin tones. Well my 14 month old took a little bite (more like scraped his teeth on it) of a "white" one, it's kind of a peachy orange. His poop today is exactly that color and there is more than usual. He usually only goes once a day or every couple of days. Is it from the crayon or coincidence(sp? again, sorry)

  • Most crayons are non toxic. If he's acting normal I wouldn't worry about it.

  • Are you sure the baby didn't eat more than you saw?

  • crayons will come out whole. or as chewed as they get. they can't be digested or 'melted' in the body. been there with a green one and a blue one when my oldest was little. lol
