Marinara sauce Q Arks Mama! ಠ_ಠ 1 child; Utah 2401 posts

A little bit ago, my husband was chowing down on some bread sticks and had a cup of homemade marinara sauce near him. My 5 month old son apparently stuck his hand in the sauce and started sucking on his fingers. DH just kind of sat there and watched him.
This shouldn't harm him should it?

Sorry I'm so paranoid about everything.
I am kind of intrigued how he's doing this, though. We haven't given him solids yet, we are still going to do 6 months+ to give him anything other than donated BM and formula. And we are planning on doing BLW.

I wouldn't worry about it. :) But no, I probably wouldn't let my 6 m/o eat marinara sauce on a regular basis.

OK good. I was mainly scared about him having really bad diarrhea. But so far he's been good.

He should be fine. He might have a little bit of an upset tummy from the acid, but other than that, nothing to worry about.
