My favorite things-Part II-Teething Jewerly!

Since my little one was born, I have lamented the fact that I can't wear any of my cute necklaces. I am a sucker for a statement necklace, and being a mommy of an infant, I thought I would have to give that up. Well, after some poking around on the Internet, I found what might be the greatest invention since cloth diaps, teething jewelry! This might just be one of the smartest and most chic ways to carry around teething toys ever. All of the jewelry is made of a 100% silicone, no BPA, lead, or other nasty stuff we wouldn't want near our babies mouths.  I decided to get an array of accessories since my current necklaces and bracelets are out of commission for the foreseeable future. Considering the fact that I might have teething babies for several years to come, I will probably add to my stash, for the babies of course....

1. Teething Bling-First off I got a simple black necklace that you tie in the back. I think you can find this brand in your local cloth diapering store. I had seen this previously at such an establishment and since my little drool monster has started chewing on everything in sight, my jaw being the preference at the moment, I decided it was time to purchase one and see if it would work.

In terms of ease of use, I find that having to tie and untie the necklace seems a little problematic since usually I have about 5 seconds to get ready every morning. However, washing is a sinch for all of these products because you just throw them in the dishwasher and voila, germ free and ready for another day fighting teething pain and making mommy look cute!

2. Chewbeads Cornelia bracelet in Punchy Pink-I personally cannot wait until summer to wear this little number! Hot pink and Navy are my go to colors for summer, so I can foresee a lot of use out of this bracelet. Lucy has already decided she loves it, so I wear it around the house so I'm always ready for a chew attack.

3. Chewbeads Hudson necklace in Turquoise-I havent yet recieved this one in the mail yet, but I can't wait till it gets here! I love how each "stone" looks like a freshwater pearl or a smooth river stone. I'm sure I'm going to get a lot of wear out of this one too as turquoise goes well with Navy.

4. Oh Plah Teething Bracelet in Clover Green-I don't know if you've noticed a patter here, but all my jewlery choices, except the first one have been summer geared in color and pair well with navy blue. I'm so predictable. This is the last one that I'm waiting on to arrive and I really hope the green is as vibrant as it looks in the photo. I absoluetly LOVE this color green because it goes so well with navy (I know, I know...) and hot pink. Plus, the cuff is bendy and the added design gives more stimulation to the child. Ahhh, I'm glad that being a mommy doesn't mean I have to compromise on my jewlery choices. And they are dishwasher safe to boot?! Can you say easy button?
