Today my 19 month old daughter brought me an open bottle of baby oil. I don't know how she got it from the dresser because she can't reach and it has a baby proof cap but she baby oil around her mouth and on her neck and shirt. So I assumed she probably tried to drink it. I don't know if she actually swallowed it because she doesn't drink ANYTHING but juice and water- she's so picky. Anyway I called the doctor and poisen control and they don't seem to be worried. They just said she might have some diarrhea. I still feel nervous. I looked online at ingesting baby oil and it said worse case scenario a baby could inhale it and if it gets in their lungs they can get lung failure and even die from it. So far she hasn't shown any side effects not even diarrhea so maybe she spit it out once she got it in her mouth. Do you think I should be worried or am I overthinking it?
