Toxicity of nickel for infant clothing


Is a clip that is finished with nickel non-toxic and can it be used in infant clothing?

What a weird question! Heck, in ye Olden Days, the babies probably chewed on lead ... and still lived many years.

It would seem that ANY plated material, common & easily available like a clip, would be l,000,000 % A.OK.

The main danger, BE CAREFUL, is if the infant swallows the damned clip! ... then you can give it a clip on the ear for causing you worry!
