Need advice : Babysitter gave my infant honey today =(
Im so upset. They put a drop of RAW honey on her pacifier today....shes only 10 wks old. I called the Dr and they said all we can do is keep an eye on her. But I did alot of reading today and the symptoms can be pretty severe. Im terrified to sleep tonight because she could go into respiratory arrest or suffer from paralysis. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Enjoying every second with our little love, Taylor Peyton!!
Re: Need advice : Babysitter gave my infant honey today =(
My father in law did this a few times with our first daughter when she was an infant. I finally got stern and it never happened again. I sympathize with your worries, but more than likely she'll be fine. Just be extra cautious for the time being and if she shows signs of trouble take her to the ER immediately. For now, just try to take the doctor's advice and don't stress too much.
Hopefully you gave the babysitter a good lesson on why it's not safe to give honey to a child under the age of 1!!
