Hello, my name is***** and I will do my best to help you. I am reviewing your question now and I will post back to you ASAP.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 2 months ago.

I'd like to induce vomiting immediately. Your daughter's dose is much too high for Pebbles. How much does she weigh?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 2 months ago.

We can also continue via chat. Let me know.

She 7 lbs
Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 2 months ago.

OK. Give her 1 ½ teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide in a small amount of tasty food or milk.

Pebbles should vomit in 15 minutes. If she doesn't , we can repeat one more time.

I will stay online , so let me know if she vomits.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 2 months ago.

Any vomiting yet?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 2 months ago.

Please let me know if Pebbles has vomited.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 2 months ago.

I have not heard from you.

I must tell you that the dose of motrin Pebbles ingested is very dangerous.

If she did not vomit you have to take her to an emergency clinic.

The Motrin can cause severe hemorrhage, kidney and liver damage.
