This is a Honey Badger Bone Scepter. All craftdwarfship is of the highest quality. It is adorned with rings of microline and encircled with bands of dwarven baby. :P

That can happen.  Go look up "Fell Moods"

True, but that's only dwarf leather or bone. I'm talking about a whole, living baby encircling that scepter.

The baby will wander off aimlessly (as unattented babies are wont to do) and the mother will continue to work on the artifact. Once the artifact is completed, she should immediately Seek Infant and pick it up, assuming it hasn't gotten itself killed (e.g. by jumping into a pool of water or a deep pit). The same thing happens with Sleep - giving birth does not cause the mother to wake up.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.

Incorrect. I can confirm multiple cases of the mother giving birth while asleep and then cancelling sleep to seek infant.
