i am so mad right now. i have told him a thousand times that our 2 year old knows how to open pill bottles and to put them back where he got them from instead of leaving them on the counter. (we keep all pills in a meds cabinent in the kitchen). i try to play out scenarios and say-"if you leave them out, Andy will get them, think they are his vitamins, take them and then who knows what will happen." i heard Andy playing with something just now and guess what....it was my hubbys vitamin C pills. i may be making this bigger than what it needs to be but i really wish he would think about these things. Andy did not take any but only because i watch him like a hawk and was able to take them from him and tell him they were medicene for daddy. oh im just so angry. does anyone have any tips about how i can approach this and get him to pay better attention?Answer Question

Here's a link that might help: http://www.minti.com/parenting-advice/9973/please-make-sure-you-keep-medications-out-of-reach-of-children/
It's a posting about a mother who's child got into grandmother's medications. Let your husband know that he is being careless in regards to both his medication and his child. And that being careless THIS way can prove to be fatal to your son. It's not a game and he shouldn't treat it as such. Kudos to you for being on top of this!

IMO, you are not making too much of this, from a mom on a first name basis with poison control. My son is special needs and eats, drinks or takes anything he can find! And my DH is mindless about things like that too! Perhaps go to the poison control website to see if they may have videos pertaining to what happens when kids OD on adult meds!

Next question overall
Was that part of my mucus plug? Maybe TMI for some...
