The juice was in her mouth on her clothes and hands. I freaked cleaned her up and called the local er where they told me not to worry she would be fine. What do you ladies think?

  • My son took a bite of raw chicken, I freaked too, he was fine. Just watch for signs of food poisening but since she hasn' gotten sick yet (it happens within the first 24 hrs) she will be fine! Breath!! :)

  • Lol, it is bound to happen mama. I will never forget the time my oldest decided to lick a dishwasher tablet while I was cooking dinner. She was about 1 at the time and had figured out how to open up the child proof locks to the cabinets. I was talking to her while cooking and just as yours she got really quiet. I didn't even hear her open up the cabinet! I turned around and there she sat licking the damn thing! I freaked out, called poisen control and was almost in tears. Poisen control told me to give her some water and she would be fine. Pretty scary stuff, but she was fine.

  • Well, it wasn't raw chicken but it was equally gross. I came across my son with half of a box elder bug in his mouth. Never did find the other half, so I assumed he ate it.

  • I was cooking breakfast and didn't notice my son snuck a raw piece of bacon and was happily eating it! Another time, it wasn't my son but my nephew. He was at our house and his sister found him drinking water out of the dog bowl. Blechh.

  • haha i was carrying in groceries the other day and i have to haul them across the street so i just sit them inside my door then move to the kitchen, I came back from my 2nd trip out and my daughter had ripped open a pack of steaks and was happy as a lark sitting there gnawing on a fat raw steak. :) If your daughter hasnt gotten sick yet, she wont! :)
