Today I picked my baby up from my babysitter's house. As I was getting him ready for bed, I saw blood and immediately went into a panic, rushing to the hospital and trying to contact her to see if my baby fell and she didn't tell me. Turns out it was just hot Cheeto dust mixed with drool. FML

You wouldn't try to earn up the area to see how bad the "cut" was before driving to the hospital? That reaction seems a little extreme. Now that you know, maybe talk to your babysitter about cleaning up your child before you pick them up? And not exposing them to spicy foods at such a young age...

Yes Adrenaline was high, but that adrenaline needs to be hit with rationale. If I'm freaking out, I can't think clearly. I can't drive clearly to the hospital. I get hit with it when mine get hurt, especially when I was a new mom. But when you freak out, you can make wrong decisions ( not that I'm shaming OP for going to the hospital) but it was something she said she thought happened at the babysitters. I'd have called her first! New mom paranoia is the worst.

^^ Agree. Although OP did mention she tried calling the babysitter to see if the baby had fallen while there.

I mean, I'm a mother of two young ones, I get it. But to not see what it actually was or calling your babysitter in the first place? You're going to kill yourself if you don't take a step back and think rationally.

I'd be more afraid my baby had flaming hot Cheetos. I mean, they're not spicy to us but <2yo? Yeesh!

why is your first reaction not to clean up the blood? as a father, my kid is gonna hurt himself. it's how he learns. I'm not gonna rush to the hospital at the first sight of blood.

So the baby sitter lets your kid put anything in it's mouth?? What else has you kid eaten there? Maybe that will explain your chils bowel habits??
