This morning my son woke up and was playing and I fell asleep on the couch on accident. About 10-15 min. after I fell asleep I woke up frantic cause my son was not in the living room playing with his toys...I can not believe I fell asleep in the first place and this is not something I have ever done (he just learned how to crawl a couple days ago). Anyway, I found him in the bathroom...garbage emptied all around him (contained about 10 dirty diapers) and the plunger was out of the plastic bag I keep in next to the toilet AND the toilet bowl brush was out of the case it is in next to the toilet....I was immediately worried and gave him a bath and washed his face. I feel like such a bad mom for falling asleep in the first place AND not baby proofing our house yet. I am wondering...should I be extremely worried and take him to see a Dr. because he may have gotten pretty bad germs in his mouth?? Am I overreacting? Does anyone have any advice on what I should do? What would be signs to look for if he did get something in his mouth? Could he get pink eye??
