Hi Dr. Ashori here.

How long would you say the piece is, 2 inches sound right?

Is there any coughing, choking symptoms?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Yh that sounds right no coughing or chocking signs and not 100% sure if he has swallowed it but I can't find it
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

I wouldn't worry.

It's plastic, it will get quite soft by the time it gets to the sensitive parts of the intestine.

He will likely poop it out if he swallowed it.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

No need to change his feeding.

Just make sure he is adequately hydrated.

Thank u for putting my mind at rest he's at that age where he's putting everything in his mouth
