A lot of Malaysian parents give jewellery for their babies to wear but is it really safe? To make it safer for everyone, we’re sharing these safety concerns you should consider when giving your baby jewellery.
Babies like to put everything into their mouths. Bracelets and necklaces can break apart and release tiny gemstones or beads which your baby can choke on. Why put them at risk if you can avoid it?
Necklaces can easily strangle a kid while he/she is asleep. Never let them go to sleep with a necklace or bracelet. Ribbons, or tethered pacifier clips can pose the same kind of danger if used without parental supervision.
Bracelets which are made with magnetic parts are dangerous because it may cause lead poisoning. Magnets also pose an additional risk beyond choking – once swallowed, magnets can attract each other and move within the digestive system, damaging the tissues from the inside.
