Baby Friendly Necklaces!!
Today I saw two really awesome necklaces for baby and I had to share!!
The first necklace is an Amber Teething Necklace. Baltic Amber has a lot of healing properties and looks super cute on baby. The ones I got to see were made by Spiral Mama and totally gorgeous. Her shop link is http://www.etsy.com/shop/spiralmama2. Here is a snip about Baltic Amber and teething from her site:
"Baltic amber has been used for centuries to treat many different aliments. It offers pain relief, strengthens the body’s immune system, restores energy, helps maintain wellness, helps break the cycle of chronic inflammation, and has a calming effect for the wearer. Baltic Amber has been used as a remedy for teething for thousands of years. This is a wonderful alternative to over-the-counter pain medicine. There are no side effects. Natural anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties of Baltic amber are perfect to soothe teething babies. By having the baby wear the necklace everyday it helps reduce the common symptoms related to teething such as; redness in the cheeks, swollen gums, diaper rashes and fevers. The necklace is suitable from about 3-4 months of age. The miseries of teething can often continue for 2 years or more. It's never too late for your child to start wearing this necklace!"
The second necklace are called Chewbeads by Lisa Paige. They are a necklace wore by mama and enjoyed by baby. Meaning, as moms we can wear them as a funky accessory and baby uses them as a teether! Genius right?! They are made of 100% silicone (similar to pacifiers) and have no BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Cadmium, or Lead. Other benefits are: Great for sensory development (help your baby focus while breastfeeding), soft on babies gums and new teethies, they have a breakaway clasp for mama safety, and are pretty cute if I do say so myself. You can get these bad boys at www.chewbeads.com.
