PSA: Poison Control (had our first call in today)

Long story short, my 15 month old decided to teeth on a bottle of hand sanitizer and managed to get the cap open and ingest some in the process.

I called up Poison Control (# was at the front of the phonebook) and she shouldn't need any medical intervention, but it was a scary few minutes!

So here's the PSA. Go grab your cell phone/smartphone/iphone/pad of paper you keep on the fridge. Go ahead. I'll wait right here.

..Got it? Ok, add this contact in. Poison Control. 1-800-222-1222.

Hopefully you'll never need it, but you don't want to be scrambling and fumbling if you do!

My doc asked me concernedly yesterday at Evie's checkup if I have Poison Control in my phone after I mentioned that she walked into the living room with a bottle of ant poison in her mouth while I was changing brother's diaper... :eek:
