What are the dangers of Sodium Tetraborate? Is it harmful if swallowed by a toddler of 11 months? Do I need to call poison control?

David Says:

According to wikipedia, Sodium Tetraborate is depicted as a mineral of boric acid.

They go on to state that, "sodium tetraborate decahydrate, according to one study, is not acutely toxic, meaning that a significant dose of the chemical is needed to cause severe symptoms or death."

Having said that, when it comes to toddlers it's certainly never a bad idea to contact poison control [1-800-222-1222] for a second opinion as well as an appropriate course of action if deemed necessary.

How has the little one been doing lately? Very well, I hope! :)
