If swollen, painful gums are plaguing baby, you well know the troubles of teething. As those pearly whites push through, baby may be irritable and inconsolable with a mouth more tender than usual. Teething is a rite of passage for babies transitioning into tots, but that doesn’t make the process any easier for them—or you. That’s where a teething necklace can come to the rescue. Our wooden and silicone teething necklaces are designed with the style-savvy modern mama in mind. With various designs from simple to statement, these teething necklaces are a great way to keep your teething baby entertained
Simply stated, a teething necklace for mom is jewelry she can wear and on which babies can safely chew. For as many different kinds of babies in this world, there may be nearly as many teething remedies. But only the teething necklace can help soothe baby’s sore gums while at the same time up your style game.
A teething necklace works similarly to more traditional teethers, with the goal being to alleviate the pain in baby’s mouth. But the difference between a teething necklace and traditional teethers is the teething necklace is designed for you to wear around your neck as a fashionable accessory.
A baby tends to need more comforting mom time when gums fire up, so as you cuddle baby—and thus tie up your hands—the teething necklace offers a sensory tool easy and safe for baby to touch, hold and chew. Chewing on the teething necklace provides a gentle massage to relieve the pain caused by emerging chompers.
The safety of a teething necklace depends upon the material from which it’s made and how it’s used. A teething necklace for mom can be made from all kinds of materials, but the best teething necklace is one that’s non-toxic and free of BPA, phthalates, lead and cadmium. That typically means seeking a stylish teething necklace constructed of medical- or food-grade silicone or wood finished with natural oils that won’t harm baby’s delicate system.
