Hi Dyah Peni,


Yarn is a foreign object that will be difficult for the digestive tract to digest, but because it is soft it is unlikely that it will clog the baby's digestive tract and will come out along with the baby's feces. But this needs to be watched out for, if it is often swallowed or swallowed in large quantities, it is feared that it can gather and become like a ball of thread that can clog the digestive tract. Another possibility that can arise is that the thread also has the potential to cause gastrointestinal disorders or infections.


Pay attention if the baby becomes more fussy, has difficulty defecating, appears feverish, develops diarrhea, vomiting, or other unusual symptoms, immediately consult a doctor for an examination and be given appropriate treatment. For this reason, try to also keep the environment around the baby clean and avoid the dangers of the surrounding environment.


May be useful,
