  • normally you'd give a laxative and see if it passes within 24 hours

  • Yes my DD who is 4 swallowed a penny (it passed) and a hoop earring ,we had to spend the night in the ER over that one because they were afraid it would cut her, they ended up sedating & scoping her the next morning but it had already moved ,so we waited it out and she passed it also. she should pass it but the only way to know is to check her stool & the way I did this was made my dd use a potty chair til we found the items.
