I’ve always had a love for accessories and I try to jazz up my outfits whenever I can. That sort of came to a screeching halt once my little guy entered the grabbing phase. Not only could he lock a death grip on some of my favorite pieces, he also had a tendency to gnaw on them
Chewbeads was born after a mom, with a background in fashion, had a baby boy and feared that her jewelry would break or that her son would ingest harmful chemicals due to his continual chewing on her accessories. She created a line of soft, non-toxic jewelry that is colorful, chic, and safe for babies. Chewbeads offered to send me an assortment of their products to review and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to check out their fabulous line of jewelry and teethers.
I was sent a Jane necklace in Cobalt and matching Stanton bracelet. First, let me say that I LOVE the Cobalt color. It’s an awesome shade of royal blue and will be perfect for football season (Go Gators!). The necklace is created using 100% silicone beads (similar to what is used for pacifiers and bottle nipples) strung on heavy duty thread/string to prevent breakage. The necklace is also knotted in between each bead so that in the rare case the necklace would break, most of the beads would remain in place. There is also a breakaway clasp for added safety. The Jane necklace is also available in 18 great, eye-catching colors.
The Stanton Bracelet is super stylish link bracelet that’s available in a rainbow of colors. It has a little bit of stretch so it’s easy to slip on and off. This design makes it perfect to be a colorful reminder of which side you’ve just nursed.
The silicone material that the beads, bracelets, and teethers are fashioned from are soft on baby’s gums and teeth. They’re also easily cleaned with dish soap and water. Heck, they are even dishwasher safe! You can rest assured knowing that there is no BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Cadmium, or Lead in Chewbeads so your little one can gnaw until their heart is content.
I was also sent the Perry Necklace in Turquoise. I can’t even tell you how much I adore this necklace! It’s super stylish and I love the color! I love to pair it with contrasting brightly colored tops and dresses, or with just a plain white tee and jeans like pictured above. My little guy is really attracted to this necklace and loves to play with it and chew on it. These necklaces are designed to be a great sensory tool for babies and can help with keeping their focus while nursing.
The Mulberry Teether is also wonderful for my little teether. It’s available in four great colors combinations. I love the contrasting black and white and the wubba seems to really like it as well. Chewing on the soft silicone beads really seems to ease his discomfort. I also love how easy the Mulberry Teether is clean. I usually just wash it with a warm water and dish soap when I’m washing sippy cups for the day and we’re good to go.
Overall, I am loving Chewbeads! They’re great for moms who want to maintain their sense of style, while keeping their babies safely entertained and happy.
