Nipped to the loo and left my toddler in the garden unsupervised for a minute or so. When I got back outside he was eating something. Asked him to spit it out and he spat out about 10 small red berries, I don't know if he has swallowed any or if they are poisonous.
The shrub that they are from has very small (.5cm long) shiny dark green leaves and flowers with white flower in the late spring/early summer.
I had an ivy plant when he was a toddler. It was behind the fireguard. I did not know that ivy was poisonous.
I noticed some of the leaves were chewed (eaten) I moved it and finally got rid of it altogether.
A couple of days later his poos were this very strange WHITE color. Very odd. gp didn't know what to make of it (I didn't mention ivy as I didn't know it was poisonous). He was ill.
It was only months later that I found out that ivy was poisonous and called gp in a panic wondering if there was lasting damage and he was very grim and said he really should have been admitted for that.
