    If its just like tiny bits of polystyrene then I would just keep an eye on her. What a little monkey, dont you feed her :wink:

    It might not do any harm to phone nhs direct.

    I would phone NHS direct just to put your mind at ease. I'm sure that she'll be ok though.

    Let us know how you get on and how she is :hug:

    Just to let you know, assuming that NHS direct works in the same way that NHS 24 does in Scotalnd, if your problem isn't on their check list of things they will tell you to go to A and E to get checked out. Don't let this panic you. Not quite the same I know, but my cat ate a string of tinsel yesterday :shock:
    The main danger, as far as I know, with polystyrene is that it can be inhaled and stop your child from breathing. From what you've said, this didn't happen so I wouldn't be too stressed. OK, who am I kidding, I'd be having kittens. :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: But in my unprofessional opinion I think she will be fine. :hug:
