As mentioned in my previous post, today is a double update with a common theme.
Yes, it’s true, Missy Moo is constantly chewing on things. If you read her a board book. she’s going to chew on it if you let your guard down for even a second.
Not even random toys are safe as shown in the photo on the left with her plush cucumber from the Ikea Duktig toy vegetables I mentioned in a previous post.
But I’ve discovered a great (and local) product that can help when our little one needs to chew and she’s up in my arms (because really, I need to keep all of my fingers; I can’t afford to sacrifice even one).
I recently bought some teething necklaces from a friend who also had her first child this past year. I’ve seen teething necklaces before, but they’re usually at least $40-50+ and I wasn’t convinced that it would be something our little miss would even want to nom on.
Since first trying out one of Jessica’s necklaces, I’ve bought more so that I can wear them with different outfits, depending on the colour and style I want.
I’m talking about Mère & bébé teething pearls. Jessica’s products are make with great care and each necklace can be customized based on what colour and size of pearls you want to have.
The teething beads are food grade silicon beads. They’re made from the same material as pacifiers. There’s also a non-toxic safety break away clasp (that my little miss has managed to force it to pop open, but in turn keeping her safe and me not feeling like she’s hanging me by a noose). The nylon cording is also very strong, but if you’re still concerned about beads breaking off, each pearl has a knot on each side of the cord.
These necklaces are definitely going on my list of things to buy a new mom. It’s a great baby shower gift that’s for both mommy and baby.
Below are a few different combinations and styles you can have (but really, there are lots of options depending on what you want).
