Chances are they will be fine. My DS did this also. I called the doc and they did have me bring him in for x-rays just to make sure it was in his intestines. If it is in the intestines, it should pass on its on in 2-3 days. And it did pass just fine on the 3rd day.

Just to keep yourself from worrying, I would place a call to the pedi and ask their advice.

I agree with previous poster, give your pedi a call and see what they advise.
