Today, my 4-year-old unearthed a snail-shaped teether we had saved from her teeth-cutting days. I remember she would happily gnaw on whatever she could get her little hands on: from shiny spoons, to board books. And whenever I dressed up and donned a strand of colorful beads, she instantly gravitated toward my jewelry and, much to my horror, popped them in her mouth as though they were candy. If you have an equally curious baby with a penchant for pendants, then you’ll breathe a sigh of relief that there’s a cool product out there that may look like costume jewelry, but secretly doubles as a tempting teether. Rock-ease by Teethease is an attractive necklace of 7 stone-shaped beads fashioned from soft, flexible silicone. Not only are they PVC- and BPA-free, but the beads are dishwasher-safe, so you can effectively keep them drool-proof. We think Rock-ease teethers look so stylish, you’d never know they were designed especially for moms and grandmas who love their baubles as much as their babies! Available in turquoise, grey marble and sandstone, these wearable teethers are the perfect gift for the woman who doesn’t need a little chomper to put a crimp in her style.
In a Nutshell: Don’t let your favorite jewelry act as a baby magnet; dress up safely with a necklace that just may “taste” as good as it looks.
