The absorbent polymer has gotten into my baby’s eye. How should I treat it?

Absorbent polymer in powder form is hard, so it may damage the mucous membranes of the eyes when rubbed. Wash the baby’s eye out with water without rubbing and consult an ophthalmologist.

The absorbent polymer in a disposable diaper expands into jelly with the moisture it has absorbed from urine, so it is unlike to seriously irritate the mucous membranes of the eyes. However, you need to wash your baby’s eye out from a hygiene standpoint. After washing the eye, consult an ophthalmologist.

Knowing how to cope in emergencies gives you peace of mind.
Enjoy happy diaper-changing times together with your baby.
