My son just swallowed a tooth. Is that OK?

I am sure it is but my DH is freaked out.

  • Happens ALL the time and it will come out the other end like anything else he swallows on a daily basis (food).
    I don't recommend "mining" for it. BUT if the tooth fairy is the biggie....write the tooth fairy a note explaining what happened to go under the pillow and then have the tooth fairy "write" (use a fancy font on the computer and print it out in a cool color) a note saying it happens all the time, but since she's the tooth fairy she sees all that happens to teeth so no biggie.

  • yes it's ok. He will pass it but don't expect the tooth fairy to want it after it comes out! lol
