The size of an infant's airway is measured in millimeters. If a charm goes in, it's bad news.

it depends on what kind of metal it is...I would check to see if it could harm her.

And I would also check to see if I could suck off one of the charms (I know they are flat but a baby's suck is powerful)

I still say take it off. If you have even the slightest doubt, which you must since you have asked about it, I would put it away until she is older.

It is better to be safe than sorry imo.

I imagined that you were talking about the flat, slide-in, picture charms when I posted - I still believe that one shouldn't have anything around their infant that you wouldn't want going in their mouth! An emergency bronchoscopy to fish a charm out (or bead, or piece of a toy, etc.) ---eeek.

Like the pp said - any doubt at all & I wouldn't do it. Any choke hazard, no matter how cute, isn't worth it.
