Nothing can be done. It will come out itself in the motion in 3 to 4 days. Meantime take an x-ray abdomen to follow up the level of the coin. Give regular diet (milk, cerelac etc. Give water also.

Donn worry. Breast feed regularly. If started on oral feed give mashed banana. See her loo every day. She will pass coin. Xray may be done to see the location of coin.
