Should I do anything?

We just moved and have been super busy unpacking (just got our things yesterday) and we heard out 9 month old choking on something, DH picked him up and our son had swallowed whatever it was he was choking on. Because we don't know what it was, should we take him to a doc or something?

  • I would. I echo the "what if it were a magnet" sentiment.

  • How are you certain it wasn't a magnet yet you have no idea what it was?
    If it wasn't a magnet, they wont do anything. They'll just tell you to watch for it in his poop. That's about it. My daughter swallowed a prong from a plastic fork, and my niece swallowed a screw, and all they said was to watch for it in the poop to make sure it comes out...and if it doesn't come out within I think it was like 24hrs, to bring them back and make sure it didn't get stuck somewhere and is making a whole in the stomach lining or intestines. Good luck...I'm sure he'll be fine.
