... upset stomach, now she's asleep.
Assuming it was just an upset stomach I bet she'll be fine! But it's a lesson to always read the medication instructions on the bottle before giving anything to a young child. Many have different dosage for kids under 12 yrs. Hope she wakes up feeling much better.
I hope your daughter is much better now? I wanted to add just for future reference that pepto bismol has bismuth subsalicylate which is chemically related to aspirin acetysalicylate which can be dangerous for children, it can cause Reye's Syndrome, a rare condition that can involve serious brain damage. I am sure you are aware of this is why you asked the question as well 1 teaspoon may be no big deal, but then again you never know. I jst thought I would mention all this in the case if anyone else happens to look at the question and doesn't know about Reye's Syndm.
May you have a great day!
