My 2.5 yr old just swallowed some water from her play boat right as I was about to wash her. She was coughing and gagging but I got the water right out, dried her off, and made sure she was okay. I called the doctor immediately and she said she was okay if she was breathing, and not gasping for air. Anyway, we are playing right now and she is acting totally normal, but I am a paranoid worry wart as probably are most parents. I hear so much about this dry drowning, but her pedi said it's very rare and just to check on her. Do I take her to the hospital to be checked. Her color of the skin is normal, no problems breathing, and is playing normal.
PS-I am not one of those mothers who asked for medical advice on here if something were terribly wrong with my child. She is fine and talked to the docs. I just want to see what other moms say.
