    i went down stairs for like 2 mins lilly was in my bedroom said she wanted to go to bed so i told her to get in mine off i toddled and she shouts me "mum its n the floor"

    i came back up and oh shit she had my folic acid..... its a child proof lid and yes it was on and locked and she had opened it and had loads chewed up in her mouth i scarped them all out but there was still bits in and asking her to swill with water was a bad idea cause she just swolled the little bits that was left in her mouth and i dont no how many she ate before ......

    do you think she will be ok im thinking its just vitamins but could have a been a slight overdose :nope:

    Oh god hun, I know the exact feeling! :dohh:

    I rang NHS 24/Direct straight away, and they can look it up on their system. Sounds like she didn't get much though, I'm sure it will be ok :hugs:

    right there was 90 in the bottle i started using that bottle 17 days ago becuse i had some left from before......... ive counted what is left and there is 52 in the bottle + the 7 days gives 69 pills... plus ive spat a few out when couldnt swollen so say 71 pill she had between 10-15 in her mouth i got the majority out so i would say she has prob eaten 5-8 pills..... my thinks she will be ok as long as we flush her system with lots of water whuch i am..... an ive asked her if she is ok she said yes she doesnt have belly ache or anything but may be too soon.... i think that could of been a close one..... my mum said i must not have put the lid back on properly becuase she wouldnt have been able to open it.... maybe i didnt but im sure i did..... i will be very careful next time
