Pretty sure my DD just drank spoiled milk from 4 months ago...

I was sitting here studying and eating my dinner and I got up to go to the living room where my daughter was watching a movie and she had an opened box of milk from October that had been given to her at Headstart that she brought home and lost in the couch and I'm pretty sure she drank it. It's an 80z box of milk...Im scared that she's going to get terribly sick and wondering if I should induce vomiting or just take her to the doctor....????

  • Just hydrate her and make sure she keeps hydrated. Other than that just hope it won't take effect, sometimes it doesn't. I've had children eat some pretty gross stuff accidentally and some things do absolutely nothing. Normally with milk the vomiting is pretty quick even with just gone off milk so you should know within a short period of time whether she's fine or not.

  • She'll be okay. She may get a tummy ache and throw up some and if that happens, just try to keep her hydrated until it passes. Other than that there should be no adverse side effects.

  • You can always call the Dr. if you want to. But I would just give her some water to drink and see what happens. it may not even effect her at all.
