Is it okay to put a necklace on my infant?

Yoghurt25 asked:

I have a 6 month old baby girl. I am going to take her to get her ears pierced. My mother gave me a beautiful gold necklace for her. It is a thin chain w. a small pendent. I am wondering, is it safe to put that on her neck. I see a lot of other babies with beautiful chains and necklaces on their necks. It looks so pretty. Is it a good idea?

    I wouldn’t. They can easily pull it off and choke on it if they put it in their mouth, or pull on it and choke themselves. At that age I don’t think it’s a smart idea.

    Don’t do it. It’s not worth risking a chance of your baby choking or getting strangled with it. Even if you think you are watching your baby closely, it takes only seconds for an accident to happen.

    Pretty isn’t worth dead. A necklace on a child under two or three years of age presents both a choking and strangulation hazard. I don’t think it’s safe to do even for a few minutes for a photo op. I’m sure your daughter is beautiful without a dangerous necklace dangling around her neck.

    Bling on a baby is just tacky. But that is my opinion.

    I agree that it is not safe…Not only could she choke on it if it came off and she put it in her mouth, but it could get tangled around her neck and cause her airways to be cut off. She will have plenty of time when she’s older to wear pretty jewelry.

    No, i don’t know what babies you are looking at but I’ve never seen and infant with something around their neck. That is so dangerous. It’s dangerous for a 4 year old let alone a 6 month old. The necklace could get caught on something and choke her. Or since the chain is so thin it might break and she choke on a piece of it. Even when i was old enough to wear a necklace my parents still made a big deal out of falling asleep with one on because you could strangle yourself. Just wait til she gets much older. She’ll even learn to appreciate things like that more.
