Woohoo! We got to try out some Teething Bling from SmartMom Jewelry. Timothy is just now getting into that slobbery, gooey phase where we are constantly wiping up buckets of drool from our shoulders and Timothy’s chin. Ah, yes, our shoulders are now falling victim to the gnawing and clawing of a…dun Dun DUN!!! TEETHING BABY. This also means my necklaces are prey to grabby little fists. I tried wearing a string of pearls to a wedding recently and that was almost disastrous.
That nifty little donut in Timothy’s hands may be our saving grace this teething season (along with Amber Teething necklaces and Hyland’s Teething Tablets!). Teething Bling necklaces are pretty, and it comforts me to know that they are safe for babies, too:
From the SmartMom website:
We use only the highest-quality, phthalate-free, federally approved silicone in our Teething Bling™ line. The material is non-toxic, latex-free, food–safe, even dishwasher-friendly! It is the same silicone used in many other popular teething products and SGS test reports are available upon request. Although we stress that this is adult jewelry not intended for children to wear, all of our pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature.
The clasp was a little fiddly to put together, but I like that I won’t get strangled if Timothy gets a little overzealous with his necklace yanking.
Teething Bling necklaces come in a lot of different colors, both solid and patterned, that you can mix and match with the coordinating bangles. Personally, I think a Teething Bling gift set would make a most excellent baby shower gift.
