Hi doctor,

My daughter is 3 months old. She swallowed a small thread. Will it harm her? And her tongue is white and thick. She also snores a little. She often vomits milk, which contains mucus. My doctor said this will get cleared as she grows. Please tell your opinion. Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Small thread does not harm the child. It will pass spontaneously.
  • Small amount of regurgitation is normal in children. We should be more concerned if she is not taking food adequately.
  • Ensure your baby is gaining adequate weight and growing well.
