What to Do If Your Child Ingests Anything, from Medications to Marbles
It's every parent's nightmare: you realize a nano-second too late that your toddler has found a small, round object on the floor and has quickly put it in his mouth. Or in his nose or ear.

Approximately 60,000 emergency room visits per year are due to unintentional medication overdoses by children under the age of 5, and countless doctor's visits originate with a stuck object. 

Here's some advice on how to keep calm and get help for ingestion of common household items as quickly as possible
