My son just ate a worm, What should I do?

I had the back door open earlier today to enjoy the weather, and I was in the kitchen doing dishes and I looked over and my 14 month old was chewing something and I didn't give him anything so I went to open his mouth to see what it was and it was a WORM I got what I could out of his mouth but he swallowed a lot of it. What would you do?

  • Tell him worms are yucky and not to put them in his mouth.

    They have a lot of protein. He'll be fine.

  • Laugh! Don't worry, it will die right away when it hits his tummy and the acid kills it. He'll digest it just like a chicken nugget!

  • You don't do anything... It's actually BETTER for him than a chicken nugget!!

    Write it in your journal for blackmail when he gets older ;) LMAO!

  • I'm pretty sure he's okay. There are people around the world that eat worms all the time .. they are fine.
    And I like the idea for writing it down as blackmail - good one Obby

  • Oh boY!! I don't want to laugh but it is funny. He'll be just fine! My Son licked a dried bird poop out on our deck last year and I was really upset but he was fine:)

  • Tell him not to eat them. But it won't hurt him. Its mostly water. And protein. People eat worms and other bugs for survival all the time and are fine.
