Abstract Five normal newborn breast fed babies were accidentally fed a dilute antiseptic solution (chlorhexidine 0.05\% with cetrimide 1\%) in place of sterile water, developing caustic burns of the lips, mouth and tongue within minutes; one baby became quite severely ill due to acute pulmonary oedema, but all survived without sequelae.
