The baby rattler had to be restrained in a plastic bag for several hours because of its age, The New York Times reported.
“The baby rattling sound, which is a bit like a baby screaming, was not as loud as we hoped,” a person familiar with the incident told the newspaper.
“It was very, very painful for us.
We have a toddler who is a little bit more mature, so it was very challenging.”
According to the Times, the baby rattle was also not a problem for the parents, who were able to take care of their baby while the rattler was in the bag.
“He was very lucky that he got the scissors out of his parents hands,” the person said.
“There’s no reason to have a baby rattle in a bag.”
