TODDLER HOLIDAY HAZARD: Seasonal toddies
Ever forget where you left your drink? Toddlers are pretty good sleuths. And that means alcohol poisoning is another common risk during the season. Kids imitate adults and will sample whatever you’re drinking if they find half-filled glasses left around the house. Toddlers are much more affected by spirits than we are, so even small amounts can produce adverse reactions like vomiting and irregular breathing.
PREVENT AN ACCIDENT:
Don’t leave your partially empty cups lying around. Also, we do a lot of cooking with extracts (which have a high alcohol content) at this time of the year, so be sure to keep those and all alcoholic products out of your little one’s hands.
