  • I am not sure I'd call..... I am sure it tasted HORRIBLE and she spat out the little bit that actually entered the mouth

  • Lol, he didn't spit the poop out he actually kept it and his mouth and said mmmm.... Everytime he says mmm we know he has something in his mouth. Lol. I think I'm going to call the pediatric after hours service though thanks for the advice.

  • Yeah I'd ask for advice, my neice did this once but the doc. said she was fine if she didn't swallow it, and she didn't. So she was fine, but def. take her in if you think he swallowed it.

  • Mine did it once, and I didn't call doctor. She was ok, but I was young and stupid. I think now I'd call just to be safe.

  • I think they usually say that if its their OWN poo its ok... but its still gross.
