How much benadryl will it take?
I was doing stuff on the computer the other day when I turned around and found Emma asleep. It was 5:00. I thought "no way are you doing this to me at this hour" so I proceeded to wake her up. She was way more dopey than I thought she should be after what we had done that day. So I just tried to keep her up until 7:00. At bed time I had gone into my room when I noticed the benadryl bottle on my night stand...EMPTY. Click, click, click the pieces came together. Emma had taken the last 1/4 of the benadryl. No wonder she was so tired. When I called my mom to tell her that I now knew what dose it took to knock Emma out she asked me why I had given her that much. I told her "I didn't. She drank it in my room in the middle of the afternoon". I couldn't believe it. How she got the CHILDPROOF cap off is beyond me. Benadryl normally makes her hyper but I guess now I know what dose will knock her out right? Just kidding
