Customer Question

I'm a grandma with a one yr. old grandson, my sons child, and a 10 month old grandson, my daughters child.
The one year old made a poopy mess in play area yesterday. I washed all toys and cleaned it all up.
While watching the other grandson today, 10 month old. I notice a tiny dried spot of poo that stayed on the ball that he had been chewing on! Will he get sick?

Hello!

No he should be fine..

It grosses us out yes ...

Kids at this age play outside and any contact of toys with soil will include fecal matter in it ( YUK! I know!!)

We do our best to keep our kids free of unsanitary contact but it happens and surprising not more than what it does ..

Bot***** *****ne is that he will be fine yes !

The 10 month old is not at any significantly higher risk now vs a typical week at this age ....

I hope that this information is helpful for you

I will be happy to get back with you
