Whoa...that's new to me. If the paperclip won't do, try finding something even thinner, say, a pin needle, and prying it out.

to tell you the truth.. i'm scared.. i used the paperclip on the front of the button, and it scratched it up pretty good.. i've also put alot of pressure from the inside... i don't want to hurt my baby!

I hear ya man, I'm sure it'll scratch it up a little, but I guess it'd be better than a halfway jammed button...best of luck!
