Please let me know if it was sugarless gum and brand?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sugar gum
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Double bubble
Expert:  Joan replied 1 year ago.
Thank-you. For her size it will pass through with no issues and it was only one piece. Sugarless gum with Xylitol is toxic and with that I would have had you induce vomiting. She should be fine and the gum should pass within the next 24-48 hours in the stool.Joan

Thank you Joan. She is playing with her toys now. I don't think she was ever inside a home when we got her

You have no worries that gum is non toxic and will pass through. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 Stars, if no other question about this situation.
