I did a search but only found one thread and it didn't answer my questions.

I was laying T down in bed for a nap and he started crying. He had had a penny in his hand that told him to put in his bank. He didn't. He swallowed it instead. I think it may have been stuck cause he kept saying it hurt and trying to gag himself...which did nothing but make him gag. He took 3 drinks of water and said he was fine.

He is potty trained. Do I need to dig around in hs poop?? He tends to poop on his own flushes and then lets me know to chck him.

What problems do I need to watch for?

Thanks

Single Mom to 2 amazing little men. T(7) and B(5)
