As a mama of 2 babies, I know one thing to be an absolute truth: Babies LOVE to chew. Everything goes into their mouths, it seems. (Whether it's safe or not!) And for some reason, babies LOVE jewelry. True story: A couple of weeks ago, I was carrying my always curious 16 month old down the stairs. I was wearing a necklace that my husband bought for me for Valentine's Day about 5 years ago. It wasn't anything super shiny or fancy...Just a simple sterling silver chain with a small heart pendant. Well, Sophie always tried to get her hands (and mouth) on my necklace. She would tug and pull, and try and chew on it any chance she got! This time, she got lucky...She managed to break my necklace altogether! She actually broke the chain itself, and the pendant came off and was in her tiny hands. It's a good thing I noticed, because the last thing she needs to be putting into her little mouth is a small silver pendant. (Can we say Choking Hazard?) I was pretty upset, since I don't have a ton of jewelry, and this had sentimental value since it came from my usually unromantic husband.
This incident got me to thinking, though. There has to be some option for a mama who loves wearing jewelry that is not only baby-friendly, but looks nice, too. That's when I discovered Teething Bling, made by Smart Mom Jewelry. Teething Bling is the original teething jewelry, and it's designed specifically with baby in mind. (All while looking great on Mommy!) Teething Bling is also made of the same safe, FDA approved materials found in most teething toys. Their jewelry is non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC, latex and lead free. Their pendants even have a breakaway clasp for added safety. The team at Smart Mom Jewelry is 100% committed to safety, and you can rest assured that all of their Teething Bling products meet and exceed all safety standards here in the United States, as well as those in Europe.
Teething Bling is available in cute necklaces, as well as coordinating bangle bracelet styles. There are a TON of color options, and they are made to mix and match! There is even a fun line called Tween Bling, which offers a fun, heart shaped pendant, as well as standard donut shaped pendants that come in fun colors and patterns. Some are even scented! These would be wonderful for that big sister, cousin, or aunt who likes to look hip while spending time with baby!
I received two Teething Bling necklaces to review, the Tanzanite Solid Donut Shaped Pendant, and their NEW Zebra Patterned Donut Shaped Pendant. I was impressed by the appearance of these pendants. They are super- cute and they come on a silky black cord. The materials used in the Teething Bling pendants are a hard, rubber material that is attractive without looking overly plasticky, and they are perfect for the baby that loves putting things in their mouths.
I absolutely LOVE these necklaces! My daughter, who is 16 months old, loves tugging on them and playing with them. She even likes putting them in her mouth, as you can see! Now she has teeth already , and these are designed more for babies with emerging teeth, so if you have an older baby whose mouth is already full of pearly whites, you will need to closely supervise them, as they may be able to bite through the material. I have not had any issues, as Teething Bling is made of very durable material. Still, I keep a very close watch on Sophie while she handles these pendants.
My 3 month old son, Xander, is just starting to show the early signs of teething. His fingers are constantly in his mouth, and he likes to try and "chew" on the bottle while being fed. He is not yet putting things into his mouth, but he does look at the Teething Bling with great interest and curiosity. He especially seems to like the bright, vibrant blue of the Tanzanite pendant. While I am wearing it, his eyes get all wide and he smiles as he examines it. I'm sure as soon as he figures out that Teething Bling can go into his mouth, that's exactly where it will end up! And I will be able to feel good about him chewing away at my jewelry, as it was made especially with a teething baby in mind! And did I mention they're cute and comfortable to wear?
I would definitely recommend Teething Bling jewelry to any mama with a teething baby. While you're out and about, you can always have the perfect teething accessory on hand, AND you'll look great wearing it. Why didn't someone think of this sooner?
Teething Bling is available at several retailers, as well as on their website. They even have a handy store locator, if you don't want to buy online!
