{when your baby eats poop}


Beckam has a new found independence.
In general, I love it.
Even though it usually gets him into trouble.

Usually he finds mud puddles, backs right up to them, and takes a seat.

Or he gets into the spice cupboard. 
Vanilla and almond extract seem to be his favorite grabs.
With sprinkles as a close second.
Luckily for me, he hasn't figured out how to open them.

The pots and pans are sure fun too.
He likes to make cymbals out of the lids.

He can seriously make a mess the fastest I've ever seen in my life.
Toys strewn EVERY where in a matter of seconds.
I spend a majority of my day cleaning up.


Today was a special day though.
Today, he found chicken poop outside.
And then decided it would be a good idea to EAT it!

I nearly vomited.
And so did he.
Apparently it didn't taste like he had anticipated.

I quickly swiped his mouth and tongue with my hand and spread the poo on his shirt.
{Not my brightest moment, but at least it wasn't IN his mouth.}
I then took him inside and washed him down thoroughly.

I proceeded to give him a snack and put him down for a nap.
When he woke up I got a little nervous thinking of Brody's E. coli scare with cow manure,
and so I did a quick google search.
{Because that's the best place to go for all of your medical needs/advice?}
That search prompted me to call the pediatrician's office right away.
In which they told me to call poison control.
What the?

Long story longer, 
he shouldn't get any diseases from this.
However, he may have some bacteria in him,
that could cause nausea/vomiting/diarrhea.

We've already been fighting colds over here for about a week now, 
so that doesn't sound like much fun.
Poor guy.
I guess that's what happens when you eat poop.
Hopefully the lesson has been learned:
anything that comes from chickens is not edible.
{he's pretty severely allergic to eggs.}

  6. True story:

    It was a rainy day and my pug was being a bit of princess and wouldn't go outside in the rain to do his business. Little did I know he was holding that poo in and waiting for me to turn my back once we were inside the house. Apparently he (the pug) decided the right place was directly in front of my then 18 month old son who was sitting in the dining room floor playing while I cooked dinner in the kitchen. As is usual I was cooking and turning to check on him every minute or two. Suddenly I turn to check on him and notice that the boy has a full sized Baby Ruth in hand and is about to chow down. It takes me a full second to realize, hey I didn't give him a candy bar because DUH he's a baby, and ERMAHGERD that's a dog turd! It was immediately after this realization that I began my action movie slo-mo leap directly from the kitchen into the dining room while yelling, "NOOOOOO"! However, I was too late. I landed in front of him just as he chomped into that poo log. Now I had an extremely frightened (due to the leaping and yelling) child with a mouth full of dog doo and a smug pug standing in the corner smiling at the scene playing out before him.

    I cleaned him up and called our doc. After assuring me that he would be fine, we had a nice laugh. Of course, my husband's first question was if I had taken a picture.

    Anyway, yeah, we've all been there. :)


    When my son was about 18 months old he ate dog poop. Seriously.
