  • He'll puke everywhere. Then you'll know.

  • I'm assuming it's just dish soap, which is pretty mild. Well, don't let him finish the bottle. But he'll be okay, he may just get the shits from it. Keep him hydrated.

  • I am not clear did you rinse the bottle out and he filled it with liquid and then realized it didn't taste good?
    If it is a small amount he may upchuck or have diarrhea or both. Regardless he needs of water.

  • Get the dish soap container and call poison control to ease your mind and get professional advice.

    Rinse better next time.

    Do not give your child water if they are under 6 months- and I wouldn't advise it under a year myself. Water likely won't do anything for dish soap. But what do I know? Call PC.

    For a poison emergency in the U.S. call 1-800-222-1222

  • You know this is a great question for poison control. Read the back of the bottle. It should tell you what to do if swallowed.
