Nibbling: A Teething Necklace I’d Actually Wear

I hate the word mumpreneur. You never hear of dadpreneurs, they’re just known as entrepreneurs. So why the special tag for mums? Anyway, that’s not the point. I recently met an entrepreneur, and yes it happened to be a female one, and she happened to be a mum. We have mutual friends but met for the first time at a networking dinner. Jackie, as she is called, soon mentioned to me that she runs her own business manufacturing and selling teething necklaces.

My eyes started to glaze over and I steeled myself for some hippy dippy looking product that I wouldn’t be seen dead in.

But Jackie just pointed to her own necklace around her neck as she chatted away. (“That’s the teething necklace?” I thought to myself. I didn’t say it out loud because I didn’t think I’d be able to hide my disbelief.)

Soon, it became very clear that yes, indeed, the necklace Jackie was wearing was her teething necklace. What’s more, two other women at our table were also wearing them. Not a gummy, dribbly baby in sight, just women drinking wine, wearing nice necklaces. I was impressed.

Nibbling necklaces, Jackie told me, are made with 100% food grade silicone (similar to dummies & bottle teets) safe and soft enough for a baby or toddler to chew, providing relief for them, when teething. They are dishwasher safe and have a breakaway safety clasp that comes apart easily when pulled.

But more than that – they look good. I’ve been wearing my black Chelsea necklace, which Jackie kindly gave me to road-test, to work and at the weekends when out and about as a family. I don’t even have a teething child, I just really love the necklace. It actually reminds me of a favourite heavy black beaded necklace I had years ago, from Accessorize, but that broke in 2010. Sob.

    these look lovely, I love wearing necklaces but haven’t so much since having children for fear of them pulling them off, my youngest is just 4 months and just starting to teeth, these would be fab.

    My fav piece of jewellery is, oddly enough, one that I carry around in the inner pocket of my nappy bag. My dad took me to nyc for my 21st and treated me to a silver pendant from Tiffany’s with my initials on. I wore it every day since (am now 30!) The chain broke a few weeks after he died last year so rather than not have it with me I put it in my bag thinking I’d get the chain fixed soon. I really should do that ASAP.

    I’m lucky that DH has bought me lots of jewelry over the years but my favourite is still my engagement ring. Always will be. These look awesome!

    I love my Pandora bracelet. It holds lot of memories 🙂

    As someone who gets an allergic reaction from anything except gold (hubby just loves my expensive taste..!), these look and sound fab! Needless to say, I’ve just entered and I’m feeling lucky 🙂

    Love the colour & the chunkiness. My 3 week old will love them in a few months I’m sure. Aside from my wedding & engagement ring, I love my star necklace – Cheap as chips but it is priceless to me.

    My husband bought me a star necklace with the initials of my boys engraved on it which I love. Trouble is, I can’t wear it with my little one as he grabs everything at the moment! Therefore a teething necklace would be perfect – I could accessorise again! X
