No I'm kidding I know the number, however I did just have to call it. I'm telling yall my 14 month old is on it today. Had to call Poison Control because he found some insulation, wasn't sure if I needed to take him to the ER or not so I called them. She told me the steps to take, wash him off because of the itchyness, give him something to drink. Unless he starts vomiting or breaks out in any kind of hives he should be ok and he probly didn't swallow any or else he would have been choking or puking all ready. I haven't had to call them in years since my oldest (now 7) was like 2.

We just called them for the first time a couple days ago. Not so fun but I'm glad they are there.

My son thought it would be cool to eat Triaminic soft tabs like they were candy one year. I bet the employees at poison control have quite a few laughs.

Oh, and once one of DH's friends got bit by a scorpion and called poison control. They told him to man up and stop being a baby. lol

The lady told me to turn the shower on and use mainly cold water and not to put him in a bath but rather so the stuff could go down the drain.
