OhMyGoodGolly! My baby just put fingernail polish in his eye!

What would you have done?

I don't know how he even found nail polish, I don't even use it very often. UGH! It is taken care of now, but I would like to know how you would have reacted and what you would have done.

  • I would have tried not to panic and washed the eye with water.

  • I would have immediately gone to the sink and held his eye under running water.

  • Holy crap~! I probably would have had a heart attack and dropped dead on the spot and my kid would have went blind on one eye! Is he alright?

  • He is fine. I flushed his eye with water and called poison control. They told me to get him in the shower and flush his eye for 15 minutes. I never saw it in his eye, but he was crying and rubbing his eye, so it could not have been too much. Anyway PC told me to watch it all night and watch for more redness and gooeyness. If he has either of those to take him right to the doctor.
