Hi--how is the child doing now?

The child has drunk milk and been asleep. There appears to be no adverse effect.
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
