    if a 9 month old infant swallows a rock can it be digested
    shiny202006 posted:
    i believe my nine month old daughter swallowed a rock. i was unaware that my sister left her in the livingroom alone. i have a center piece on the living room table and she got to it. im not sure if she swallowed one or not but i would like to know just in case i need to take further actions as far as taking her to a doctor

    if its small enough that she can swallow without choking i would expect it would be able to pass just fine as long as its not sharp. most things end up passing but usually the things you need to worry about are sharp items like needles and stuff. just watch for signs of her being unconfortable or it in the diaper.
