For a mother of an early child, teething babies and their love of biting everything is known to be a bit of an issue in raising a child. One of the options available for helping deal with this problem is silicone teething jewellery. These necklaces and bangles can be worn by mummies with teething babies, allowing the child to chew freely on the material as its teeth develops. Mummies will also find the colors and varieties fashionable, ranging from bright spring pastels to darker autumn and winter colors.
Safety and Cleanliness
Silicone teething jewellery, often in the form of necklaces or bangles, can be worn by mummies taking care of teething babies on the go. Designed as teething jewellery for mums, the silicone necklaces and bangles are safe and non-toxic, allowing a toddler to chew safely. The soft material is the same type of silicone used to make dummy nipples or baby bottles, and are free of toxic materials such as PVC, BPA, phthalates, lead, and cadmium, as well as even adhering to food standards. The soft, safe material provides a comfortable chewing piece for teething babies to gnaw on. A fair warning when using your jewellery, though – while the individual pieces of silicone are safe and comfortable (and even dishwasher safe!), the clasp is not chewable – so be careful, and be sure to replace any damaged parts. And remember, this is teething jewellery for mums, not babies – mummy wears it, not the child!
For Australian suppliers, the pieces are tested to pass AS/NZS ISO 8124, an Australian safety certification for toys. The clasps are designed with a breakaway clasp that prevents the necklace from coming apart when pulled too hard by mummy’s giddy little baby, and the certification testing is done to verify that no parts break apart, fall into the baby’s mouth, or cause other complications – in addition to the previously-mentioned non-toxic standards.
Teething jewellery is available in a variety of colors and styles tailored to various occasions. The necklace colours come in various soft pastels, ranging from shades of blue like indigo, to turquoise, and other colors such as black, candy pink, raspberry, and more. Also available are bangles, similarly colored in soft blue and violet pastels. There’s a color for every season for mummy!
Pricing and Ordering
The cost of silicone teething jewellery varies with the color, style, and what type you are purchasing. Some necklaces are available online with prices in the $39-$45 range, depending on the complexity of style and color mummy might want. The small, thick bangles, made of the same PVC-free material can be found for thriftier mums on the run, with prices solidly around $20 – perfect for grabby little babies looking for a finger to chew!
