h__lo all! im using listerine mouth wash.....im not sure if its ok or not cause it says it contains saccharin and not for kids use. it also says not to drink, eat or rinse for half an hour afterwards. does that mean im not allowed to swallow for that time? its hard because i have a build up of saliva by then and being in bed trying to sleep im not going to get up and spit.....anyway, im making something big of something small...but i have no idea if i can use it or not. cheers for your info.

yeah, I'd say you are making something big outta something small. Mouth wash isn't good for kids because of the fear that they'll drink it! and the drinking/rinse is so that the mouth wash can take a full effect. Swallowing with a bit of mouth wash? Not going to hurt you or the baby!! I would say, no worries at all! Keep your mouth clean and use that mouthwash!

Thanks lidea for your response. After reading dee23's post I started to worry as well...as I use the mouthwash pretty much everyday to get rid of the nasty aftertaste in my mouth and to prevent throwing up. I never read the fine print of not swallowing for 1/2 hr etc, oh boy! Am i glad I could continue to use it.
