I work with someone who was accidently shot in the face with a BB gun. It knocked out a (front) tooth and damaged the jaw. It has been 3 months since it happened and she has another2-3 to go until her jaw has healed enough that she can get an implant. Not what I'd want for my kid.
I don't like to hold anything unpredictable when I hold a squirmy baby. I even have my tea in a travel mug!
