Well I called his pedi. I'm just waiting on them to call back. He seems completely fine now. I'm just worried about his puke session moving the penny around or something.

Quoting [JadeLee]:" No wonder places around here won't take Canadian pennies any more. We get a lot of canadian change (pennies quarters, do they have dimes?) since we are 90 minutes from Canada."

Yep, pennies is the only thing to change!

Quoting *Mayhem*:" Jesus I must really be out of it lately. Nope, had no clue they quit using them. So you guys still have everything but pennies? Dimes, Quarters, Loonies, Toonies, and then bills?"

Lol they claim they're stronger, safer and won't rip but it's not true... If it gets even a little nick in it, it tears apart. Plus counterfeits are coming out now lol

I've always been told they will poop them out. when I was a kid my moms bestfriend Marcy had shown me the xrays from all her kids that swallowed dimes ,nickels, ect. and pooped them out. I don't think it will hurt your child but if your concerned take him in.

If penny was bigger in size then he might have had difficulties to swallow. But don't take a chance, consult pediatrician.
