  • I would take her to a Dr. This happened to my friend, her daughter swallowed some and the Dr's didn't even give her daughter a shot (when they are supposed too) she took her daughter home and not even a day later her daughter was struggling to breath and had to be rushed to the hospital and spent a month in Childrens Hospital with breathing problems and getting sick from the bacteria. She almost died.
    If I were you I would take her in, better safe then sorry

  • Yes, and she had to have antibiotics and was in the NICU for a week until I was allowed to bring her home. I'd take the baby to the doctor just to be safe.
