I'm guessing it's not poison ivy as none of us have ever suffered skin rashes from touching

Are you sure he has eaten it? I would have thought that one nibble would make him spit it out - would have quite a bitter taste?

Google it, call NHS 24, call the poison control place (do they have those here?) -- don't know but hope he will be fine.

not sure, dd2 had a few leaves, don't kno how many which he was playing with and I fished one out of his mouth which he was struggling with, so hoping that he didn't/couldn't swallow one. there were a couple of v small ones though!!
no luck googling so far, will call nhs direct to be safe.
