Teething Bling! Mom Jewelry and Baby Teether All in One!

The concept is ingenious! You take the fact that our little teethers are constantly trying to yank on our jewelry - with the main goal, just like any other object that they get their chubby little hands on, of somehow getting it into their mouths. Collide the two ideas and you get Teething Bling by Smart Mom Jewelry.

This is the one I have!

Now, I loooooooooooove jewelry. Lia Sophia, Park Lane, Napier, Monet...I have collected an assortment of bracelets (yes, including bangles), necklaces, anklets, rings, earrings, you name it. (Many were steals on eBay and finds at yard sales, lucky me!) So, when you add another element to jewelry, like keeping a baby content and soothed (especially a teething baby, oh, the joys!), you hit the jackpot with me! Now, I've added Teething Bling to my favorite list of jewelry, too.

The pendant on the necklace that I received feels just like a soft, chewy baby toy, but to the eye, it looks like it could be ceramic and it's super-sparkly-glimmery-shimmery. After looking through their product pages, I can tell you that they couldn't have selected a more perfect choice for me!

Here are a few more necklaces that I really like:

And, don't forget your favorite tween who helps with the baby:

And, did you say that you needed a matching bangle bracelet?

Is It Safe?

Now, I know the question that immediately popped into your mind...Is Teething Bling jewelry actually safe for babies to have in their mouths? And, my immediate response is: Do you think I would back a product that isn't safe for our precious little munchkins? Of course not!

Here's the scoop: According to Smart Mom Jewelry, the pendants and bracelets are made of "medical-grade, food safe silicone", which is the same material used for the baby spoons and teething toys that we already purchase for our babies.

Here's more information, straight from the horse's mouth:

"Teething Bling® contains no harmful chemicals: no phthalates, BPAs, PVCs, lead or latex.  Our products are CPSIA compliant, carry the European CE mark for safety and are FDA approved.  Pendants also come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature. We remind users to never put a pendant ON a baby, and never leave your child unattended with jewelry of any kind."

And the cord? Obviously, you won't be leaving your child unattended with your necklace, because it's supposed to be conveniently worn around your neck, but just so you know, the nylon cord that they use has been safety tested, as well.

We haven't hit the teething stage here yet with Chase (thank goodness!), but he is starting to figure out how to grasp things and does that crossing-the-eyes thing while he tries to get them to his mouth. He has taste-tested the Teething Bling already, and I can tell that it's going to be a lifesaver in the very near future!
