  • Call poison control & get advice from them. I'm not sure if it's as dangerous to drink it as it is to breath it in. Children have died from getting it into their lungs. Wouldn't hurt to get some medical advise on that... Best Wishes, hope all is well.

  • Call poision control and ask them, that is their job. They are better than the staff at the ER when it comes to kids ingesting things. I am thinking he will have a nasty tummy ache and possibly diahrreah.

  • Call poison control. I have had to call them a few times. They will tell you if it is dangerous or not or if he'll just have diarrhea or whatever.
