  • do you smell it in her breathe? Clean her first. Give her a good thorough bath and brush her teeth, give her some water to "wash it down" in case she ate any. Poop isnt sterile but it shouldnt hurt her. I dont think pink eye is passed through poop, I think that's just a wives tale. If her eye was to get infected you'd notice right away with swelling. Now the room. Hold your breathe and wipe up what you can. Get some carpet cleaner for stains (in this case formula for pet accidents). Follow the instructions and let it sit then wipe and vacuum. Dont feel embarassed! You're not alone. She felt uncomfortable and you didnt make it on time so she took it in "her own hands" lol. My son has done this before. Try to look at the humor in it all! I've been through this and SO found this website: go to this website for some laughs! You'll see a lot of poop photos

  • ~*Ecoli*~ is what comes from poop... and why we females have to wipe properly and wash our hands!!! If she ate it, she will get sick, possible ecoli, contact your child's doctor to know what to look for, JUST IN CASE... so you aren't the nutty mom that is in the E.R. every couple weeks... hahaha

  • My daughter did that. She spread it on the walls, her crib, herself. It was AWFUL. She smelled like poop for days and her room smelled like it for at least a month. Don't be embarrassed... SHIT HAPPENS!!
