Pediatrician 's  Response
good morning , there s nothing to worry if the plastic piece is not sharp or big in size, it ll eventually be passed out in the stools in a day or two. u have to take the kid to er if he complains of severe pain in abdomen or develops loose stools. if the child is playing comforatbly having a good apetite and sleep , don not panic.
