Fatima - January 3

Last night, i caught my lo with a cleaning solution bottle in his mouth, I smelled his mouth and it smelled like the cleaning solution so I immediately made him vomit. He seems ok now, but I still cant help but worry that I didnt do enough for him. Should I have taken him to the ER?? It was the fabuloso cleaner, used for mopping and has fragrance.

wow, that must have been scary. Sounds like he's ok and the fact that he threw up is good, but I would probably give my ped a call just in case. They may tell you to give him something to flush out his system. I hope he's ok.

OMG! I hope he's OK. I would have immediately called my dr or taking him to the ER..it's good that you had him vomit. Am I glad now that my cleaning stuff is all in one cabinet with the safety lock on!

i thought with alot of things you do not induce vomiting?? what happened since?

Nothing happened, he is perfectly fine. I read on the label that if accidentaly ingested to slowly drink water or milk and call a physicial if necessary but I didnt read it until after it happened, since that was my first instinct. To get it out of him. But I even took him to the ped later on for a vaccine and he is fine.

I caught one of my daughters teething on a silica gel packet once... you know the ones that say "do not eat" all over it. Well, I freaked out and called the dr and they said it's non-toxic and not to worry about it. Not really the same thing but its good to know

That must have been a scary situation. For future reference there is a poision control hotline that you can call anytime and ask questions at any time. I live in canada mind you, but its located in the phone book, near the front somewhere. My dd also got into one of those silica pacs (from a shoe box) and ate it. So i phoned and they were very helpful. They ask you questions about how old dd/ds is, how much they ate, and tell you what to do. Its confidential as well. Just wanted to let the moms know about it, incase you didnt already.
