    Default So, my 4 y/o swallowed a goggle eye...

    I think he had it in his mouth because I had expressly told him not to (having a few attitude issues atm, pushing the boundaries etc) but from another room I heard a lot of coughing and crying...

    I came rushing in and after a lot of cryptic clues (I swallowed an eyeball!) I figured out what he had done. He is breathing ok... I am thinking it's more of a mental thing than anything else... but he is dry retching a lot to try and bring it up (I think it's gone down into his stomach, as he did bring up a lot of water but no goggle eye) and I think he is a bit mentally scarred...

    Just wanted to check that I don't have to take him to A&E or anything... he will be fine, right? He has kinder today, I don't want to cause any issues for him there either

    Ring healthline direct and they will let you know what to do - it's the digestion and passing of it that I'd be concerned about. Hope all turns out good.

    He just bought it up again.. and made a royal mess in the process.

    He is stubborn though, because every time I asked him he was feeling, he told me good... then all of a sudden he is vomiting everywhere!

    Thanks for the advice though!

    I can't be the only one with a child who swallows random things, can I?

    It's unfortunate that he made a mess (and gross, time consuming, smelly), BUT!, it does mean you get to avoid spending hours waiting in emergency and changing your whole day.

    My son swallowed a dollar coin, not quite as interesting as a google eye! We had to take him to the hospital as after a while he started crying saying his throat and chest hurt, thankfully it passed down the right channels and we assume he pooped it out, I was not going looking for it!
