Mama, Yes, Yes! or Mama, No Way! {Chewbeads}




I saw a display similar to the one above at my local mama/baby/maternity boutique, Waddle N Swaddle, on Tuesday.

My first reaction, "Oooh- these are pretty necklaces!  What are they doing in here?"

The sales associate came over and mentioned that these are teething necklaces and bracelets that mommies can wear.

Interesting.

I don't know how I feel about these.

I did some research on these "teething necklaces" and came across "Chewbeads".  They were created by a fashion veteran mama whose baby loved to put everything in his mouth.  So, she "set out to create soft, non-toxic jewelry, which was colorful, chic and, above all else safe. Hence, Chewbeads!"

According to Chewbeads.com, "the jewelry can also be used as a sensory tool to help your baby focus while nursing."

I'm a bit torn with the teething aspect of this jewelry- here's why:

Imagine- I buy one of these necklaces (pink or maybe mint colored) for Sophia to help soothe her teething discomfort, and it works!  She loves it! What happens when I put on a different necklace or if Sophia gets a little older and wants to chew on my J.Crew inspired Fan fringe necklace??  

To her, it's something that is around my neck that I allowed her to chew on.  

I can only imagine she will become frustrated and upset.  Who wants an upset baby?


So, in my personal opinion- I don't think these are "ideal" for  mommies who wear jewelry on a regular basis.  Plus, I'm sure this can be quite messy and I don't want to have to wear a bib, ha!  
*These are my initial thoughts on this product.  I do hope to review it and share my experience in a future post.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!  Do you have one of these necklaces or bracelets ?    Is this a "Mama, Yes, Yes! " or "Mama, No Way!"?
