  • First of all don't panic. As long as the child is not in pain and did not choke then she should be alright. It should pass through her and she should be fine. If she complains of abdominal pain then take her to the hospital but it should be fine for now.

  • get a cell phone or home phone hon in case of emergencies or a pre paid phone something to use only if you have to call 911. =) kids swallow pennies and stuff all the time if he looks like he's in pain... take him to the dr or ER

  • It probably wont be the last LOL . Glad she's okay. Last year I caught my daughter feeding her twin sister pennies. Got to them in time (only 2 went down) when I asked her what she thought she was doing she said "look mommy, Cassie's a piggy bank" Didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

  • well i have to say that my DD survived a staple (we have the xray in her baby book) - i would wait for the penny to pass. If it sounds like she is having a hard time breathing i would go to ER so they can xray to make sure its not stuck somewhere!
