I have just seen ds who is watching Little Bear covered head to foot in Baby Oil. It is all over the sofa and cushions and in his hair. He says he also drank it. He is 2.7 yo so may be kidding. He seems fine. Apart from bathing him should I be concerned? TIA
Yes! You should! But only because tomorrow his poo will shoot out at top speed.
I wouldn't have thought he would have drank anymore than a mouthful (that's if he has at all) as the taste would be pretty rank. Does the bottle have a health warning about swallowing it? If not then I would imagine it shouldn't give him any nasty side effects except for v slippery poo tomorrow.
nah shouldn't worry. Between them mine have eaten seudocrem, baby lotion, baby oil, shampoo, conditioner, soap, washing up liquid, poster paints, candles, dirt, probably a few bugs, all manner of paper, card, pens, felt tips....... pretty much anything they could get their hands on. Still here, still healthy
I have one of those too, a fresh smelling child,my dd 2.5 drank between 5 and 10 mls of pure lavendar oil last night and spent the night in hospital after being pumped full of activated charcoal!!!!!1 not nice i must admit though she smelt lovely!!
