My 5 month old just helped herself to a fair bit of a sheet of paper that I had printed out some pictures on. Please reassure me that this is not going to do her any harm.

nope, but be prepared for a possible paiper-mâché vomiting session later

ooohhh I never thought of papier mache... you don't think it could gum up her insides do you ?

my DS has eaten bits of newspaper, magazines etc that i wasn't able to retrieve from his mouth. just expect it to appear in the next poo your baby does. if you notice anything else, maybe ring the docs.

no, unless she ate a pot of wallpaper paste too wink

My dd had a liking for tinsel, each nappy change containing solids was a sparkly affair. I am sure she'll be fine.

thank you all for your help. She seems fine so far, so Ireckon we'll just have to wait for it to work it's way through now.
