A bird pooped in my daughter's mouth yesterday. Do we need to worry about anything?
Sure, kids may say and do the darndest things, but concerned parents definitely take it to a whole other level. While these moms and dads certainly mean well, it's hard for anyone (even a pediatrician) not to dissolve into laughter when they hear weird and unexpected questions like:
Betty ate cheese from a mousetrap from which the mouse also ate. Is that anything to worry about?
Should my eight-year-old wear boxers or briefs?
I dropped off my son's urine sample in a Tupperware container. Can you please give it back when you're done?
From concerns about pickle-shaped poos to the risks of sitting on Santa's lap, Dr. Henry Anderson, a pediatrician in private practice, has heard it alland now you can, too.
