My son has an addiction.lol.Any time he sees someone chewing gum(a family member no strangers ok lol) well he goes up to them puts his arms upward and once they get to his level or they pick him up he shoves his hand in there mouth to take there gum.Well recently hes swallowed 4 peices of gum.and every time we see him with it we try and take it but with him having 17 teeth already he bites us and 4 times he swallowed the gum.so should i have to worry any?

He takes their gum? haha!

No, it wouldn't be harmful for him. As long as he is passing stools regularly afterwards.....he should be good to go ;)

Hahaha that's too cute!

He will be fine. It'll pass on it's own. I just would tell people to not chew gum around him.

It'll pass fine.
Make a "no gum, no exceptions" rule for your home, and ask friends/family if they'll keep up with the rule anytime they're near your son.

He'll be fine. Work with him and get a pack of gum. Show him that you can make bubbles with it and he can't touch it or it will pop. Tell your family to hide gum until he grows out of it or he likes the bubble thing.
