Hi--how is the child doing now?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The child has drunk milk and been asleep. There appears to be no adverse effect.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. In general these felt tip pens are made with nontoxic inks and really don't pose any poisoning hazards. I think he'll be fine but if he starts to have any symptoms like nausea or vomiting let his doctor know about this
