My baby chewed on the pad and the gel came out – what should I do?
The material that is used to absorb the milk is a Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP). It is similar to what is in baby diapers, in that it starts as a powder and once the milk hits it, it turns into a gel. The SAP is non-toxic, however, it of course is not meant for ingestion. If you do think there is a possibility that your baby did in fact ingest some of the polymer, contact your doctor and/or your local Poison Control Centre.
