Eating plastic

My son just ate a candy cane and its wrapper. His doctor is closed for lunch but I'll be calling them in 15 minutes. He's not choking or anything. How bad is this?

  • I wouldn't think to bad I mean his body should process it. My DD at eraser, like off the clicky pencils and the lead (not made with lead) I was worried but it will not hurt her she processed everything fine.

  • He should be fine, but just to be safe call the doc anyhow.

  • Yeah, I would think he'd just poop it out in a day or so.
