I used to love wearing jewelry. Nothing too fancy, just some dangly earrings or a fun necklace. But that all stopped once my little bouncing bundle of joy arrived. Those itty bitty hands love to grab anything and everything, don't they? I never gave him the chance with earrings (I mean, ouch!!), but he did yank off my all-time favorite beaded necklace about a half year ago. The clasp broke, of course. I have yet to get it fixed, it's just laying in my drawer as a sad reminder. I haven't worn a necklace around him since that, until I recently found Teething Bling!!
Teething Bling makes jewelry that is safe to wear around your little ones. The clasps are a simple plastic snap so they will open up and not break when your baby yanks the necklace (and he or she WILL yank your necklace, trust me!!). The pendents and beads are made of medical-grade food-safe silicon and are safe for little one to mouth and chew on.
How can jewelry that is safe for your little one to play with and chew on be fashionable, you ask? Well, they're called Teething BLING for a reason - they are totally stylish!! They have tons of styles and colors to choose from, so any woman can find a design that suits her taste.
Personally, I fell in love with the Gemstone collection. Here's me and my little one enjoying my new necklace:
Here's a closeup of my jade gemstone necklace, as well as the onyx and turquoise still in their bags.
What I first noticed upon opening the bag was, WOW, stinky!! I guess it's the silicon? I freaked out thinking the necklace would always smell like that, but thankfully, it aired out really quickly, phew! It was so super cute, I couldn't wait to wear it! My little guy was really enamored with it at first, and it was fun to be like "Go for it dude!" and not have to play keep-away as we do with so many other things. It comes in handy as a quick distraction on the changing table or while nursing. Also, the string is knotted on both sides of each silicon gemstone, so if for some reason the string broke, only one stone would come off. But I really can't see it breaking, because when baby yanks it, the class unsnaps, so there is no major strain put on the string (which is nylon and very strong anyway).
