I posted this in P&B by mistake - should have posted here.... god almighty I nearly died. It was so stressful. Thanks be to god he didnt get burnt but it was hot tea. I stripped him immediately and put cold wet towel on his chest. It happened in sceonds. I went home to my parents at the weekend for an appointment in Dublin and we were having breakfast. I took him out of the high chair - put him standing on the floor while I pushed the chair in to the wall. He walked be hind me and picked up my mug of tea. It was like it was happening in slow motion when I turned around. He got it to the level of his face but the mug was too heavy so his little arm trembled and tipped it over his chest - it ran down his legs and into his shoes. He bawled crying! I feel so so bad over it. He has no burn or anything but I feel so so so guilty

Don't feel guilty, could happen a bishop. They did a safety talk at our local children's centre and tea can scald for up to 15 minutes after being made :eek :eek :eek Scary times. Glad that he's okay x
