What foodstuff have you accidentally dropped on your baby?

DD is 8 weeks old and so far (due to general clumsiness and failed attempts to mulit-task) I have dropped the following on her:
Breadcrumbs (in toasted & non-toasted format)
Biscuit crumbs (various)
Cake (various)
A single baked bean
Potato peelings
Smoked salmon
A prawn

The majority of these are from eating while BF, but the last 3 were all last night when I was making dinner with her in a sling.

Anyone else?

When DS was a few weeks old. I had him in the sling at home. I hadn't been to the shops so ended up having a cheese and BBQ sauce sandwich.

I dropped BBQ sauce on him and it sort of pooled in his fontanelle. And I didn't realise until it was all congealed and I could peel it off. Nice.

Literally anything you can eat one handed - at 8 w you could pretty much establish what I'd eaten that day by tipping out the contents of the sling on to the table and doing an analysis of the crumbs smile

Tango- I was coming on here to post a very similar story.

DS2 was in a sling at about 2 months old. I was at a BBQ and this very kind woman pointed out I had dropped almost the entire contents of the burger on his head; ketchup, salad, a bit of bread, Mayo, cheese and a small amount of burger, which had fallen out of the bottom of the bun as I had taken a (very delicate) bite.

I was eating a fried egg sandwich with DD on my knee (she was about 6 months at the time) and when I bit into the yolk it dribbled all over her head - felt terrible that my first instinct was to laugh!!

Mainly wine and pizza crumbs. ..

I tend to balance a napkin on her head if I'm eating with her in the sling. She almost got onions on her out of my burger. blush
