Glad that you called Poison Control. Just as a side note, I give my ds 1-2 Tums a day as a Calcium supplement (he's 18 months and 20 lbs).
So glad everything seems okay!!!
My Chiro mentioned (while I was pregnant and having WICKED reflux) that tums is NOT a good calcium suppliment because calcium need a semi acidic environment to absorb correctly and tums eliminates the acid that it needs.
I didn't research this, because it was irrelevent to me at the time, but you might want to look into it.
