Thank you farmerswife - that is so good to know.

I have had to call them a few times. My oldest son sprayed carpet cleaner in his mouth. (You'll all be happy to know that is 95% water - not toxic.) My youngest son bit the diaper rash ointment tube and got it in his mouth. (not harmful either) and my youngest again ate his vitamins and the vitamins of his two siblings. Not harmful either since they didn't contain iron and they were only kids vitamins.

For a while I thought I should call them and say "Hi It's me again...." LOL

Yes, I actually have it saved on my cell phone now.

He ate...

tomato leaves (since it's the deadly nightshade family I was nervous)
toothpaste (almost a whole tube, who does that?)

My first drank bubble bath.

Esme just tries weird stuff like cat food so no poison control for her or the baby yet

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Yes. My daughter decided to spray 401 into her sister's face. Phone call to poison control but no worries, it's non toxic. That's about it so far.

I have! On Halloween night last year my two year old got into a bottle of antibiotics and then came downstairs and said "Mommy, this candy tastes like yuck!" I was a nervous wreck...they were all over the floor and I couldn't figure out how many, if any, he had actually eaten. They said he'd be fine and at worst he'd have an upset stomach, but he didn't even get that.

When my oldest was two she got up out of her bed, pulled her night-light out of the wall, and then ate the bulb. Good grief...who does that? She too was fine...I just called the emergency number for the pediatrician's office. It was shatter-proof glass I guess.

yep 3 times once because my oldest dd swallowed oops almost a whole bottle of flouride mouth wash it's pretty safe it could have caused the runs but it didn't.

dd#2 got into ear drops and tasted some but that is safe too.

ds #1 sprayed himself in the eyes w/ some sort of cleaner but I just had too rinse his eyes out for 10 minutes.

I never have had one eat a light bulb though def a new one rotfl too funny

Yes, when my 14yo was a toddler she got into some lamp oil... called poison control and they sent us to the ER.... turned out she had more on her clothes than in her mouth. They were more worried about her possibly inhaling it than ingesting it... turned out ok (obviously)
