Oliver has recently got to a bit of a biting stage. Anything he can nibble on he will, and he spends a lot of his time chewing his toys. If my finger goes near his mouth, I’m sure to get bitten! I’m always on the hunt for something to help my teething toddler, whether it be a teething toy, medication or accessory.
When Mama + Belle contacted me to review their teething jewellery, I was more than happy to. I love teething necklaces, I would go as far to say that I have a bit of a soft spot for them. I think they are becoming more and more popular, and there are so many different designers out there that there is one which could match any outfit!
Most companies that make teething jewellery are run by mums, and Mama + Belle is no exception. Suzy set up Mama + Belle in 2014 when she saw a gap in the UK market for teething jewellery that was stylish and didn’t shout ‘I’m teething jewellery’. And I’m pretty sure she has done that!
Mama + Belle’s jewellery is all made from high quality food grade silicone and is FDA approved. The jewellery is all washable and to make our lives easier, it can even go in the dishwasher or in a steam steriliser! To make the extra safe they knot the string between every bead.
After much deliberation I settled on the Isla Blossom necklace. It’s a beautiful pastel and marble coloured necklace. Their designs are all really beautiful and quite contemporary, it was difficult to pick one! The cord feels nice and strong, and features a breakaway clasp. I think this is such an important feature. As I’m sure we all know how hard it can be to prise those little fingers off of our jewellery!
Oliver really loved the necklace. He especially loves fiddling with the beads and having a chew on it. I really liked it too, it goes with so many outfits. It’s so versatile and I don’t feel like people are instantly looking at it and thinking it’s a teething necklace. The necklace is quite long, so you have some room for them to pull it without it pulling on your neck. If you don’t like it that long, it can easily be shortened too.
I really enjoyed testing out this necklace and if you want to try your own you can buy them here.
