I don’t really remember teething being such a big deal when the Happy Buddy was a baby.
Aside from some major drool-age, he sort of woke up one morning and had teeth.
The Happy Baby, however, is a different story.
When this little man gets a tooth, it’s like a full body experience.
There’s fatigue, his hypotonia flares, he loses a ton of weight, gets massively congested, and there is some barfing.
Sometimes I feel like he only gets a few days of rest before another pearly white decides to make its journey to the surface.
Pretty much every piece of furniture in our house has bite marks.
I am not even kidding when I tell you that the leg on a chair in our dining room has been practically whittled to a twig. 🙂
The other day when I came upon the Happy Baby chewing on the Happy Hubby’s flip-flop, I was determined to find another way.
I mean, I am learning to let go a bit more about germs and things, but a SHOE?! C’mon people, we have ducks that leave big ole’ poopies on our sidewalk… I am not okay with him putting a shoe in his mouth!
So when I came across Chewbeads, I felt the light of heaven shine down and I heard a chorus of angels.
One of the Happy Baby’s favorite things to chew (besides shoes, apparently) are my necklaces.
If I have anything around my neck, it will instantly take up residence in his mouth.
Most of my jewelry is from Claire’s – yup, that’s true, I am a 12-year-old trapped in a 30-year-old body – so I would imagine the paints and materials they use are filled with more chemicals than the periodic table of elements. Not to mention the fear of my inexpensive jewelry breaking mid-chew and becoming a choking hazard. Eeek!
Chewbeads, on the other hand, are perfectly designed for a baby.
Cute, bright, chic jewelry for moms to wear – soft, non-toxic, un-breakable jewelry for baby to chew.
A total win-win!
The Happy Baby LOVES my Chewbeads (shown here as the Jane Necklace in Sunshine Yellow). Just look at the chomp he has on that thing!
And I love the chunky design and all of the fun color choices.
I feel way more stylin’ in my Chewbeads than my usual Claire’s bling! Plus, I know I am investing in my baby’s health. 🙂
Chewbeads offers other options beyond necklaces as well. Bracelets (which make a helpful little reminder of which side you nursed last), teethers, and even a special collection of jewelry designed for little girls.
