I believe that a ‘little dirt never hurt’ and am a strong advocate of the ‘6 second rule’, if something hits the floor I will still give it to Madame, don’t worry I usually pick the cat hairs off first! I also believe that a lot of allergies today are a result of our hyper-sensitivity to germs.
In the last 2.5 years I’ve ferreted some interesting things out of her mouth; especially, when she went through the stage of exploring the world through her mouth.
To date I have extracted (I don’t have eyes in the back of my head):
- Loose change
- Tea light (metal container and all)
- Broken Glass
- Fag butts
- Bottle tops
But the corker has to be…….
A mouse’s stomach, courtesy of our two lovely cats that eat everything and leave the stomach behind! Blech!
What’s the worst thing you’ve had to pry from the jaws of your little ones?

Eeew… I consider myself lucky, Little Man never put anything out of the ordinary in his mouth, although I think Dot is going to be a different kettle of fish. Everything goes in her mouth already. Bring on the good times! :)
Cor blimey! I cant remember tbh! Is that bad?He used to like sucking on pens. That was a real problem! Blue saliva … yeah … not pretty!
Lol very funny, I'm impressed you were able to identify the correct organ of the mouse. I think my list is similar to yours with cat sick being a close one but not actually going in. My nephew once ate a snail. The worst was when second son (at 8 months) started to eat the solid contents of then 3 year old's potty. I had to remove poo from his mouth. And everywhere else. The thought still traumatises me.
I've never had to fish anything particularly bad out of the boy's mouth, in fact he never really did the mouth exploring. But my mum delights in telling me every time I see her that when I was 18 months old she fished out of my mouth the remains of an earwig. And it wasn't whole. She doesn't know if it was whole when it went in…
it's a 3 second rule and apparently doesn't apply if it's the child you've dropped
