Will this hurt my one year old?

He swallowed a piece of the tip of a plastic fork. Should I be concerned?

  • I would just keep my eye out for anything abnormal in the idaper. Was it a large piece? He'll probably pass it fine.

    My son swallowed a nickle a year ago and the ER said to just keep my eye out for any blood in the stool. If that happened then we were to head straight back.

  • depending on the size, if it was a larger piece you might want to have him checked out. It's asharp little piece.
