Update!

How about some strong probiotics? Food with lots of fiber!

Ouch! All that stuff may keep him regular, but I don't know what will grab a hunk of copper and force it out.

Epsom salt bath. It helps my son poop every time he has one.
Praying my son never does. I never want to look for it to make sure it passes.

Sorry mama! I did that when I was 2. I'm pretty sure it eventually came out.

I did that when I was 4 but it got stuck inmy throat and I started chocking. My dad called 911 and they talked him through the hymlic while we waited for the paramedics. When the penny came up so dida bunch of red and my dad started ffreaking out thinking it was blood. He forgot that we had watermelon for dessert lol
