Small objects can suffocate your child
This is another one of those things that absolutely mystifies new parents and non-parents -- infants and toddlers are constantly choking on things. They can choke on almost any piece of food. If you drop a coin on the floor accidentally, they will pop it in their mouths and then choke on it. They will choke on the small parts of toys that your older kids play with. Choking is a constant hazard.
Choking is one of the reasons why you cannot ever let an infant or toddler out of your sight. Especially if your child is eating solid food, you must watch constantly, because choking is something that only takes a minute to cause serious damage.
