DS2 (3) has just swallowed 10ml of kid's mouthwash clearly marked DO NOT SWALLOW!

What should I do? Should I worry? He is running around full of beans. Anyone been there?

Is it specifically for children? If so, I bet loads of children swallow small amounts. To be on the safe side, phone NHS direct with the bottle and the list of ingredients.

Oh and read the information that comes with the bottle before phoning - maybe it will tell you what to to in case of ingestion.

Will do that. Bottle doesn't say anything just ingredients. There is no leaflet with it.

It is one for children but for 6+ (ds1)

10mls shouldn't cause any harm, and if it's children's mouthwash it should be alcohol free.

I think they put Do Not Swallow on the label to reinforce the fact you shouldn't drink it!
