Baby had piece in mouth

Craptopetalum & Pachyphytum succulents plants.
Luckily, these types of plants are not as toxic as plants in other species, but if the baby has actually swallowed the pieces, I wouldn't waste time taking the child and parts of the plant to the emergency room.
It is probably worth having some Syrup of Ipecac handy, if this is a common problem; learn about how to use this emetic which will make the victim vomit.
Keep all succulents out of reach, including any fallen pieces - they are just too appealing to a certain age group.
Best of luck,
