My second son is 15 months old and he still sticks everything he can find in his mouth. Everything. Shoes, phones, remotes, plants, dirt, socks (sweetie, please stop eating your socks), books, pillows… and the list goes on and on.
I’m sure many of you are not surprised. It’s normal, right? Perhaps. But not for me. My first boy didn’t chew on anything, so this is all new.
Which is why we have been very entertained all week by our new Teething Bling bracelet and necklace. I’ve kept the bracelet on my wrist and when he grabs for something I quickly replace whatever he’s chewing with the Teething Bling bracelet. Problem solved! He’s happy and the remote still works.
The necklace came in very handy as I tried to have a conversation with my neighbor yesterday, holding Cade so he wouldn’t wander into the street. Generally conversations had when I’m holding him involve a load of gymnastic moves. This time, just one move, handing him the necklace. Granted, it only lasted 20 minutes, but I’ll take what I can get.
On top of that, the jewelry is safe. All jewelry is non-toxic, phthalate free and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp. Very comforting these days considering what is going on in the plastic world.
I adore the black bracelet and would be comfortable wearing it to a very swanky event, the pink heart I'll keep around for everyday use. Hopefully the company will take off, I'd love to see more necklace options.
Another benefit, killing two birds with one stone. Generally when leaving the house I concentrate on what the kids need. Now (for at least one item) we both need the same thing. Genius!
