Customer Question

My 3 year old swallowed one sip of hair oil just under an hour ago, in the dark mistaking it for water. I’m not sure what the oil contains because there’s no label on it. She seems absolutely fine though, I’ve been monitoring her since and she’s playing with her toys and being very talkative as usual. What advice do you give?

Nice to meet you.

Just observe, nothing to worry about. If she is fine, well and good. Any rashes, difficulty in breathing, straight to A&E.

Normally she would be sleeping now, as the time is 1:30am, I brought her downstairs to play so I can observe her. It’s been around an hour. Should I keep her awake longer to observe or do you think it’s fine for her to sleep?

It’s hard to observe when we’re all sleeping.

It's fine to let her sleep.
