Hey everyone this is my first time on here and im looking for some advice after googling and freaking myself out sad so i was bathing my LG 18 months old. I was washing her hair and as i put the jug of water over her head she fidgeted and jerked my hand away from her and ended up being a waterfall over her face. However im not sure if she managed to inhale any i wiped the water out of her face as quick as i could and she was still holding her breath i had to rub her back to get her to breath and she coughed and started crying and then she was fine. This happened about 2 hours ago shes in bed now as its bedtime but im just really worried i know the signs to look out for but i was wandering if this could happen in this incident as she wasnt submerged etc thanks in advance x

Its very rare and especially so in a situation as you've described. How was she after she stopped crying and before bed?

She seemed fine was playing in her bath and laughing etc when she came out being a cheeky monkey seemed fine within herself. Shes not that great with even the smallest of trickles running down her face, i will admit im a panicker :/ x

I am not an expert but DS1 is a rookie lifeguard (he is only 10 though so also no real expert) he says symptoms would be coughing, hard work breathing, fever, sleepyness or irritability, being sick.
