My 3 year old found Vitamin C tabs and took them
I went to the bathroom and when I came out my 3 year old son had a chair pushed up to the fridge and had gotten some Vitamin C tabs or pills or whatever they are from on top of the fridge.  My husband has a cold so he has been taking them daily...our locked medicine cupbboard is over the fridge and for some reason my husband left the Vitamin C out.  Anyway, He ate some. I think he only ate a few...maybe 3 or 4 and he had a big handful.  He was saying "Mom look I found Candy!" I friggin lost it.  It says right on the side of the Vitamins to keep out of reach of children...but it's only Vitamin C not a multi Vitamin....I tried googling what to do, he is eating bread and drinking milk now.

I know it's just a vitamin but should I be worried?  I can't find anything on google as to WHY you need to keep Vitamin C away from children, like what it does and so on....Does anyone know?

Don't worry.  The worst that will happen with a one time massive dose would  be gas, and maybe diahrhea.  Just maybe drink water or kool aid.

Locked away has to be the answer, are they flavored  possibly she thinks they are candy .So find a cupboard put a lock on it .I am sure you know that 2 year olds need a lot of supervision ..like eyes at the back of our derriere...
