Joy-Anna Duggar slammed for putting beaded bracelet on daughter Evelyn, 7 months, as tot could 'easily choke' on jewelry

COUNTING On fans slammed Joy-ANNA Duggar for allowing her seven-month-old daughter, Evelyn, to wear a beaded bracelet.

Followers criticized the mom for potentially giving her daughter a choking hazard.

Joy-Anna shared a snap of Evelyn getting into a basket of diapers and seemingly putting a tube of cream in her mouth.

The mom captioned the pic: "She's reached the age of getting into everything, and that makes me sad. Not because of the mess, but because she's somehow already old enough to crawl around and explore."

The DuggarsSnark Reddit "That means it’s time for a sibling! /s. And why the baby bracelet? She could easily choke on that."

But other followers: "Isn't that one of those chewable bracelets for teething(spelling?)"

Others wrote: "It’s possible, either way, it’s a terrible idea. There are so many other options for teething. And she’s clearly choosing to chew on the diaper cream and not the bracelet so seems like the other options are more viable than the choking/tourniquet hazard."

A third weighed in: "I am truly mystified as to why anyone would put any kind of jewelry on a child younger than four or five, even earrings. It just seems too easy for a child to pull jewelry off, get it in their mouth and choke on it."

Another Redditor wrote: "Baby bracelet thing isn't a weird Duggar choice, it's a thing some otherwise normal people do. I don't get it. It seems very unsafe to me. Sometimes the bracelet is amber which people claim helps with teething but there's no actual evidence that it does."

Joy-Anna recently shared her fears Evy, seven months, could have “brain damage” from a “weird bump” on her skull.  

The reality star and her husband Austin took their baby to Arkansas Children’s Hospital to get checked out by a specialist doctor.

Joy-Anna shared doctors said "the bump may be a sign that her skull is fusing together too quickly. If it does fuse together too quickly then it could cause some brain damage.”

Thankfully a specialist concluded that Evy’s skull wasn’t fusing together too quickly and that they should just keep an eye on it over the next few years.

Joy-Anna recently said of her parenting: "Learning patience in parenting isn’t easy for me… honestly, I thought I was a pretty patient person until I had kids!

"Thinking about how my words and actions affect my kids' life has opened my eyes and sometimes broke my heart. I can either respond in patience and love or in anger and frustration.

"When something happens and I want to get upset I have tried to think to myself 'Is this going to help the situation or make is worse?' Getting angry and yelling at them is never the right answer.
