I bought some cough medicine for Ace several months ago and called the doctor for the dose. I stupidly wrote the dose on the box instead of the bottle, then stupidly threw the box away. Tonight he's extra stuffy so I gave him what I thought was the dose, THEN looked online for the dose, and realized I'd given him a bit too much.
I GAVE HIM TOO MUCH COUGH MEDICINE. OH MY GOSH I SUCK AS A MOTHER.
I totally called Poison Control. The lady was all "he's well below the toxic dose, but here are some things you should look out for, although I don't think he'll experience them," then listed things that are freaking me out. I hooked up the baby monitor for the first time in a year. I'm not sure how I'll listen for excessive dryness, drooling, lethargy, or stomach pain, but I'm sure as shoot gonna try.
Jeez Louise, I cannot believe I did that. I'm going to check on him like every 10 minutes, but the Poison Control lady is going to call me back in an hour. Dude, I am bugging out for reals.
