Ugh. My ds2, 15months, was playing in the bathtub (no water in it, just walking around) while I went to the bathroom and he knocked the shampoo down (he hadn't been able to reach it before!), before I knew it, his hand was in it and in his mouth (it had spilled) and he was trying to eat it! He gagged and spit it out, and I don't know if he swallowed much or not; but I called poison control and they said it was okay; that he might vomit or have diahrrea but just to watch him.

He was totally fine, never had any diahrrea or vomiting; so I don't think he even swallowed it, just tasted it.......but my heart is still pounding and I'm still worried and watching over him (this happened at 1pm today). I can't believe it happened so fast, while I was right there watching him!

Now every time he coughs I'm convinced it's the shampoo.....

Gotta run....

LOL. I know that he's fine, and he didn't seem to like it, at least!

My son did this yesterday. He picked up the bottle of baby shanmpoo and sucked on the lid which was a pop open kind. I didn't think he could get any but then he cried so I sucked on it and sure enough.. but I don't think he got much, a bad taste though. He cried and we nursed and he is fine. What is funny is that our nickname for him is bubbles so I think he was trying to live up to it.
