  • First of all calm down. No I don't think you need to rush him to the emergency room. I would just keep an eye on him, make sure he doesn't have some kind of reaction or any tummy problems, and just wait it out. I'm sure it was harmless and you'll probably see it in his diaper tomorrow morning! My sister swallowed a pink Barbie shoe when she was like 1 and those things are hard plastic and sharp! The doctor just told my mom to watch for any signs that it was causing a problem and look for it in her poop. Well we never found it but she never had anything bad happen!

  • since you don't know what it was they will most likely tell you that it will pass and to watch his cousin swallowed a screw and thats what they said to his parents so just watch for it to pass
