Child swallowed foam earplug

Help! DD (2) may have swallowed a foam earplug. She took a nap on grandma & grandpa's bed and the ear plugs are missing. She said she ate them. Has anyone had a child who has done this? Do we need to be worried?

(We're waiting for a call back from the on-call nurse too)

My son did that a few years ago. He was about 2. I freaked. But just waited for it to pass.

Re: Child swallowed foam earplug

I think it'll be fine. The biggest concern with swallowing something is them choking on that, which apparently didn't happen. At least it's a soft item that'll pass, too! Much better than what my daughter swallowed as a toddler- a pair of gold stud earrings! We had her x-rayed and saw them in her intestines. The doctor said there was a miniscule chance of them perforating something (since they were somewhat pokey), but otherwise nothing to worry about. So I think you should be fine with earplugs. Sorry that happened though, I know it's scary! (and gross!)

Yup, I'm on poop patrol the next few days. I'd hate to be fishing around in the toilet for "inspection"- I can be glad my LO is still in diapers!
