Eating Dog Hair

With two shedding dogs, our entire house is covered in dog hair. Dog hair gets on pretty much everything. All the furniture, all surfaces, often times food, all of your clothes, and all of your clothes even after they come out of the washer and dryer. And yet, when Baby was a newborn, I strove to keep him free of dog hair. I would put down clean sheets or clean towels for the baby to play on. I kept his clothes free of dog hair. I kept his cloth diapers free of dog hair. And I kept his crib free of dog hair.

But Baby is no longer a newborn. He's over six months old now. And well, it's hard keep a six month old free of dog hair. Actually, I think he's already eaten some dog hair. He loves to explore his world with his mouth. So, I've resigned to the fact that I can no longer keep Baby free of dog hair. And as long as his digestive tract can manage solid foods, I guess (and hope) that the dog hair won't do any damage.

My mom has sworn all my life that in order to be healthy, you need to ingest a certain amount of animal hair.
