my 2 yr old swallowed a flat marble

I went to get it from his hand and right before i got to him he stuck it in his mouth really quick and swallowed it! Has anyone else had a similar situation like this happen to them? do they poop it out?

  • He'll pass it. As long as he didn't choke, I wouldn't worry.

  • Yes, he should pass it, so watch poop for the next few days UNTIL YOU FIND IT AGAIN. My niece has swallowed a nickel & a dime. (2 occasions, you'd think that she'd have figured that out the first time, LOL!)

  • My ds swallowed a quarter at 3yo; it came out the other end about 4 days later. You should check for it to make sure that happens.
