Day #3 Jane Necklace by Chewbeads

Moms of teething babies: you’ve probably noticed that it’s almost impossible to wear jewelry. Babies in the 4-12m age range are experts at yanking, chewing, biting, grabbing, and taste-testing everything in their reach.

Instead of giving up on pretty accessories altogether, consider the options at Chewbeads. The Jane Teething Necklace is made up of 100% silicone beads. No BPA, phthalates, cadmium, lead, or metals. The individual beads are squishy and soft so they feel good on baby’s teeth, but they actually look more like wood (very artsy – like something you might buy off etsy).

Jane Necklace by Chewbeads Day #3 Jane Necklace by Chewbeads

I wear my necklace quite often and it’s a great distraction for my little one’s hands and mouth when we’re out in a crowded place. Unlike other teethers, she can’t toss it on the ground because it’s securely around my neck.

The only downside is that my hair sometimes gets stuck in between the beads – ouch! Probably safest to wear this necklace when my hair is up. ;)

The Jane Necklace retails for approximately $29.50 and comes in 18 colors.

    Good looking product- I have a necklace with a chewy charm. Bought it after I realized that my ds broke mine chewing it on the way home from Korea- glad he didnt choke on it. We used to love frozen washcloths

    Ice cream is my favorite remedy for babies old enough for it. Nothing numbs the gums and improves moods like frozen milk and sugar, lol. (I try to get the all-natural kind with no gross ingredients in it, and I find it improves my mood and my patience for grumpy tiny people too!) Before that point, damp washcloths seemed to provide the most relief for my son!

    What a cute teething necklace.

    Why my daughter was teething I gave her lots of semi-frozen fruit to help her.

    I’ve seen several products like this, but haven’t tried one yet…my youngest is 8 months old right now…it would be the optimal time! :0)

  • sara

    Not much! I wish we had necklaces like these, or maybe we did and I was just sleep deprived and clueless!

  • Carol

    Not much at all unless you count letting her bite me!

  • Ginger G.

    placing a damp cloth in the freezer and letting it get cold, but not too firm for baby to chew on : )

    These necklaces are super cute! I know my daughter will LOVE chewing on this necklace instead of just the standard frozen toys.

  • Laura Dover

    After 4 children I still haven’t found anything that is awesome. The razberry tether is good, but way to big. Baby #5 will make his debut in just five days and I would love to have one of these this time around!! Thanks for the chance.

  • Monica

    My LO loves chewbeads!!!

  • mallory

    For some reason, my son likes to chew on hard things…mostly wood. These necklaces are so cute. My mom got me the “Hudson” necklace because that’s my son’s name. He LOVES it:)

    Love Chewbeads for teething baby. I also love freezing yogurt in ice cube trays and throwing them in a mesh feeder. My kiddos always love those!

  • Jossie Garcia

    Thus far, we have been lucky. Liam is a champ when it comes to teething, but when he needs a little extra help we use our Waverly Chewbeads, Sophie the Giraffe, or a frozen teether!! He LOVES them all. :D

  • Mallory T

    Usually a cold teething toy, but luckily we haven’t had to deal with that much since her amber teething necklace works so well.

  • http://www.blelmer.blogspot.com Brittany

    I have one of those “munch bags” that i put frozen grapes in for him to bite on, but the chew beads would be great to wear to church to give him something to chew on. I feel like I can’t wear any jewelry these days since it all goes in his mouth. He’s almost 1 and still no teeth!

  • http://www.jewelsntreasures.net Vanessa

    We live and swear (well not literally) by our Amber Teething Necklaces! They make all the difference in the world!

  • Cassandra Eastman

    Right now my daughter likes chewing on frozen teething toys, she also has a amber teething necklace that I think helps a lot!

  • Anna

    So excited to read about this necklace. I wear my daughter in the Moby wrap all the time. She is constantly grabbing at my silver (not baby friendly) jewelry and trying to put it in her mouth. I walk around the store trying to trade my necklace for a teething toy. These necklaces would make teething easier on both of us!

  • http://www.someunordinarydays.blogspot.com Sarah Johnson

    We use a banana brush, ice in a wash cloth, and hylands teething tablets at night.

  • joD

    I rub my little guys gums with a really clean finger to help soothe his discomfort. Sometimes a frozen washcloth works well.

    Thanks for pointing out that your hair gets caught. I am looking for teething jewelry & have long hair. This necklace is really cute and will be perfect when wearing up-dos and my everyday ponytail.

  • Kristen

    My babies just wanted to nurse more. So they did… And luckily for me, very few bites ;)

  • amy pugmire

    I feel like we try everything- teethers, cold teethers, orajel, tylenol!

    I use Hyland’s teething tablets.
    I wonder if these beads would be distracting enough while nursing… I have one that arches her back and pulls so much it hurts. :(

  • http://facebook.com/artXtart Arietta Holloway
