Question: swallowed object
|joyce813 - Fri Dec 10, 2004 8:18 pm||
My 3 year old swallowed a smooth pebble about the size of a dime. I gave him a large glass of water. Will it comeout OK by itself?

i think it is better if your child gets evaluated by a medical professional because this is a rather large object.
