Just dialled 111 as 13 Month old has swallowed small amount of hand sanitizer from my DM's handbag (even thou tell EVERY SINGLE TIME) to shut her hand bag - I'm livid at her right now.

111 is calling me back

But anyone else had this & any advice? confused

How much? I suspect the ingredients are water, detergent, fragrance and alcohol. Assuming it was just a mouthful I really wouldn't worry. Maybe give some water / milk to dilute it.

Only a tiny amount before I grabbed it!!!!!! It's alcohol mostly & fragrance

I'm sure the baby will be fine. My toddler has eaten hand cream and poo with no ill effects.

I am sure your child won't have ingested much if any...

Please calm down and don't be livid at your mum. That tiny amount will do no harm at all. Honestly, relax, he'll be ok.
