I feel terrible right now, and I'm not sure what to do.... My eldest daughter Rayne was eating some Honey Graham Crackers and Bobby and I didn't think much of it when Saige snagged a piece. It wasn't until after she ate some that I realized "Wait! That has Honey in it!". She only ate a little bit but I'm worried. What should I do??
Me personally, I wouldnt worry too much, just keep a close eye on her. I am sorry you had a scare! Collin had given Bailey an m&m when she was just 6 weeks old, by the time I had realized it she had red stains (red m&m) and chocolate on her lips. It had melted in her mouth. She was fine.

Deep down I feel like she's just fine and there really is little cause for concern... but I tend to be a worry wart and because of my Anxiety have to explore all possibility. So I looked it up online and found this...
Starting Finger Foods - Baby Foods and Infant Nutrition
"Honey is still to be avoided at this age, so avoid Honey Graham Crackers and 'honey' cereals, like Honey Nut Cheerios. Although the honey may be cooked in these foods, it is not heat pasteurized to remove botulism spores."
This kind of made me freak out. Hubby went ahead and called the Seattle Childrens Hospital, left a message, and we're waiting to hear back to see what they suggest. I feel like such a terrible mom right now
I'm glad the doctor said that she will be fine. I just wanted to add that you are not a bad momma! You are one of the most caring and loving momma's that I have had the pleasure of "knowing". Your babies are so blessed to have you in their lives.
I don`t know the exact chemical difference between kerosine and baby oil ( both seem to be paraffin ) , but I`d be very careful in both cases ( baby oil isn`t used for air plane as fuel ) The dangers of baby oil - Today Tonight
kerosine might contain carcinogenic chemicals, but when inhaled or ingested the toxins contained might be more harming than the carcinogenic chemical in the acute case.
