No idea if this is the right place to discuss this but here goes anyway..

I was holding my 7 month old ds and drinking a really warm (not hot) cup of tea (i know how stupid of me, but i guess i wont be doing that again).

Anyway he hit the cup with his foot which fell directly on my legs and soaked my clothes through. There was also a little on his sleepsuit, next to his foot but it was more of a stain. I obviously washed it, took his clothes of etc etc but now im just panicking. Like what if i wake up in morning and theres burn marks on his legs/feet. Iv never experienced this before. Theres nothing visible on his foot at the min nor is it red.

Do i ring doctors in morning? Or what??

Dr googles been no help, just made me panic when i wouldn't usually.

Was it hot enough to burn you on your legs? If there's no mark on his skin and he's peaceful then it's ok, one thing about burns is that they tend to be instantly visible and they don't develop over time. If there's nothing there and he's not distressed its fine smile wine

If it hasn't burnt you I suspect he is ok! Burns usually come up as red pretty quickly. If he ok in himself and not distressed I would be inclined to think he is ok. Go with your instincts and don't beat yourself up accidents happen! smile

I have done this twice DS was fine after initial shock. Just keep an eye on his skin and if nothing develops then it's probably fine. You feel terrible though don't you.
