Woohoo! Another great giveaway! The ladies over at SmartMom sent some of their Teething Bling jewelry my way...and also sent some for YOU to win! So what is Teething Bling you ask? It's simple, stylish jewelry made for teething. We all know that little ones LOVE anything they are not supposed to touch, especially if that something is hanging around mommy's neck, or keychain, or wrist, etc. So, to avoid having jewelry yanked and broken (and have unsafe materials in baby's mouth...), two moms created the SmartMom Teething Bling. It comes in many different styles, solids and patterns, and is designed for moms of little ones. The jewelry is made of phthalate free, food safe silicone designed specifically to be safe for little ones' mouths. From the SmartMom website:
"We use only the highest-quality, phthalate-free, federally approved silicone in our Teething Bling™ line. The material is non-toxic, latex-free, food–safe, even dishwasher-friendly! It is the same silicone used in many other popular teething products and SGS test reports are available upon request. Although we stress that this is adult jewelry not intended for children to wear, all of our pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature."
I was sent the Jade donut shaped pendant and the Blue Camouflage Gift Set (up for grabs!). The first thing I noticed was the nice size, and beautiful color of the pendant. I was worried that it might look like an inexpensive piece of plastic, but I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it looked. I doubt anyone would be able to tell that it was made of "teething material" unless you were very close or holding it. I put it on immediately to see if my 17 month old would notice. I have pretty much avoided any and all jewelry because I have had two necklaces broken in the last 17 months (one guess as to how...). I was particularly interested in this jewelry for nursing, more than teething. Although my daughter will still be cutting more teeth, I think she has plenty to be able to dent up this necklace pretty good! However, she is still nursing and is very easily distracted by other things going on. I thought that maybe this might give her something to focus on and hold while nursing. Lo and behold, it worked great for this! She loves for me to wear necklaces so that she can break ummm...errr grab them (LOL). This one she was actually able to grab, pull, and even bite if she got the inclination. It kept her entertained and I really enjoyed wearing it. I think any nursing mom, or mom of a teething baby would really enjoy having some of this jewelry! Thanks SmartMom for a great product!
Up for grabs in this giveaway is the Blue Camouflage Set which includes a bangle, heart shaped keychain, and donut shaped pendant. Good luck and thanks for visiting!
