  • Yeah I had that happen many times. If she ate it she'll poop it out. Don't stress. My kids used to scratch them off or pull them off them selves. I did have one of my twins put it in their mouth but I caught her before she got any further(like swallowing it).

  • I she didn't gag on it going down, it will pass through just fine. If you spot it in her diaper in a day or two - great. If not, just figure it got lost somewhere.

  • Did you check the roof of her mouth? I know sounds silly but my pediatrician told me that one time her daughter ate a price sticker off something & she didnt know it but she was changing her diaper and baby opened up her mouth to cry and she could see it stuck in there on the roof of her mouth.  She told me this because once my daughter ate the corner off the page of a book and when she pooped it came out looking exactly the same. I didnt know she had actually eaten it till I saw it in her diaper.
