crappity fuckballs - was in our local grocer's and the sweet old man who runs it offered DD (who is 8 months old) a bit of honey waffle. Normally I wouldn't even give her anything with sugar as she's so young but he was trying to be nice and my overly polite side kicked in. She only had a tiny nibble and didn't look at all impressed so I finished it and then I suddenly remembered about infant botulism! confused Has this happened to anyone else? Should I be worried?

I wouldn't worry, it is very, very rare. But be aware of potential symptoms over the next month and remember to mention the honey to a doctor if you end up seeking medical help.
