   Jewelry is pretty. It is sparkly, shiny, and can even make little tinkly noises. You can even show off how much money you have with expensive jewelry.

   And if you want to kill your baby, make sure you put lots of jewelry on her.

   Jewelry can scratch eyes and skin. Broken bits can come off jewelry and choke a baby to death. A necklace can get caught on furniture or a hammock and choke a baby, or cut into her neck, causing great pain and infection. A bracelet can get caught in bedding and rip an arm or leg out of the socket when you pick your baby up. A bracelet, ring or necklace can rub the skin, causing bleeding and infection. If it presses on the skin, it can cut off blood flow to parts of the body, or deform a bone. Earrings can cause infection in the hole for the earring, as well as get stuck in bedding. Someone can rip a chain or necklace off your baby to steal it causing harm, or just kill your baby to take the jewelry.

   If you really need to put jewelry on a baby, get yourself a doll instead, and dress it up.

   Yes, jewelry is pretty. And babies like having things hanging on their bodies that make noises, and they can play with and put in their mouth.

   If Grandma gives you jewelry for your baby, thank her, and tell her when your baby is old enough, you will give it to her. Or just put it on for a few minutes and take a picture and give it to grandma.

   Under no circumstances, should you put any jewelry on your baby. It is always dangerous.
