My daughter was playing with my styrofoam cup from dinner and she managed to bite a piece of the lid off, a pretty small piece, but more longer than it was wide. The lid is plastic. What should I do? She gagged on it but it never came up so it ended up going down. I just worry because it obviously had sharp corners. Just wait until she poops it out? And I don't want to hear "you should've watched her more closely" because I was holding her and she was just too quick. TIA :)
geez watch your kid :roll:
My son swallowed a piece once (he was 9 or 10 months) and he just pooped it out. Pedi said to just watch and make sure he's eating and all that.
If it were my kid, I would give her something to drink to wash it down. Then continue to watch how she acts for a while.
I would check the throat and make sure it's not lodged. Also give your LO something to drink to help wash it down and other then that there is nothing you can really do now but watch your child for any weird changes.
Silly Casidy! Give her something thick to drink to help make sure its down. Smoothie or shake or something. She should be okay. She may get cranky when its time to come out tho!
Thanks everyone! I nursed her for a bit to make sure it got washed down ok. Now she's asleep. I'm going to be worrying like crazy until that thing comes out lol...
Just watch her. It probably will come out in her poop soon. Peyton loves to eat paper now. :x
