  • I heard stories of children eating a penny and after a day of two getting the penny back.
    Call the doctor immediately is your child start wheezing, vomiting, running fever, refusing to eat.

  • ha. i was actually one of the children who ate a penny and sure enough i got it back. just keep an eye on her and take her in if she starts acting different. if you're unsure go to the ER
