Giveaway: Smart Mom Teething Bling from Posh Baby Boutique $19.99 {2.3, US/Can} CLOSED

This giveaway is now closed. Stay tuned for the winner announcement. Thank you all so much for entering!

Smart-Mom-Jade-Donut-ModelHow long after you became a mama did it take you to put away the chunky necklaces and the dangly earrings? How sad were you when you realized babies and jewelry don’t always mix very well?

Well, break them out again!

Posh Baby Boutique is offering our readers a giveaway of Smart Mom Jewelry Teething Bling® — fashionable and functional jewelry made just for moms!

The pendants are made of a nice, squishy, safe silicone. Your baby can’t hurt it!

In fact, your baby will love it.

That’s right: Smart Mom jewelry was designed for babies to chew on.

The silky cord that hangs around the mama’s neck also features a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature.

And the best part? The necklaces look great! The donut shape pendants come in many different stylish colors and patterns. No one will know your necklace is baby-approved … until your baby starts gnawing on it and you don’t object!

Teething

Smart Mom Teething Bling necklaces are perfect for teething babies, because they can gum them to relieve the pressure on their jaws. It’s a natural pain reliever, and the high-quality, phthalate-free, non-toxic silicone is safe for them to have in their mouths.

Breastfeeding

I think Smart Mom Teething Bling necklaces would also rock as nursing necklaces. I’ve had a big problem with twiddling during breastfeeding. A nursing necklace can give busy hands something to do, and it can also focus the attention of babies with wandering eyes, when you’re nursing in public and would rather not have your eight-month-old popping off and whipping his head around every two seconds at each new sound. (Been there!)

Features

smart-mom-open-mouthI ended up winning a Smart Mom Teething Bling necklace in another giveaway, so I was able to check it out in person! I don’t have a baby who’s the age intended for the Teething Bling, but I do have a preschooler who was happy to model for me.

The material is a federally approved silicone. It’s latex-free, which is good because there are a number of people with latex allergies. Silicone is soft and pliable and ideal for massaging a teething infant’s gums. The silicone is food–safe (you might have a silicone pan or two around your kitchen) and even dishwasher-friendly if it comes to that!

The cord is a thick, silky black with a breakaway clasp. It hangs down long enough that your baby can easily reach to chew and fiddle while being held or breastfeeding.

Fashion

The design of the pendant and cord is simple, and I find it quite elegant. I didn’t feel like it stands out as “baby” jewelry — it just looks like a trendy pendant and cord. I like that there are many different colors to choose from, some funkier and some more low-key. You should be able to find a style to suit your taste — or choose a bunch to match each outfit!

Because of the streamlined design, this is the kind of necklace you could wear every day. It would make a lovely and understated signature piece. And then imagine everyone’s surprise when you pop it in your baby’s mouth!

Safety

smart-mom-weirdfaceThere are two safety notes that go along with the necklace:

  • The silicone could theoretically be bitten through, so Smart Mom cautions mothers that it’s to be used only on babies who are teething, with teeth only just emerging. Keep an eye on your little chewers to make sure the jewelry looks safe and whole at every use.
  • The cord has a breakaway clasp for added protection, but it’s in no way intended to go around your child.The necklace should be WORN BY ADULTS ONLY, and it should be used by your baby only under adult supervision. Otherwise, the cord could pose a choking hazard. (In other words, ignore my pictures! My kid is three, and I was supervising him — and taking pictures — the entire time he was wearing the necklace.)

I’m confident that you and your baby will enjoy the Smart Mom Jewelry Teething Bling.

BUY IT!

You can find Smart Mom Teething Bling at Posh Baby Boutique at $19.99 for a pendant and cord necklace. Giving a Smart Mom necklace would be like giving two gifts in one, because it’s partly for the baby, but it’s also a way to show you care about the mama. No one wants to feel frumpy in those postpartum days, after all, and I just love the idea of functional jewelry that’s still stylish. If the mother intends to breastfeed, it’s also a way to support her in her decision by giving her a tool that will come in handy when she needs it.

While you’re over there, check out the other quality items at Posh Baby Boutique. Many of the selections are custom-made, personalized, and/or mama-designed (just like the Smart Mom Teething Bling).

For instance, who doesn’t love tutus and PettiSkirts? (I seriously wish they made them in my size!) The baby apparel and girls boutique clothing is to die for, and she carries eco-friendly baby essentials like cloth wipes, cases, and changing pads and gift sets perfect when a baby shower is on the calendar.

    I would love the Mother of Pearl necklace

  19. Tara

    This would be great for my little nursling! Lately she’s been trying to suck her thumb and nurse at the same time and invariably ends up breaking her latch and biting me or scratching my nipple with her thumbnail (ouch!). This might keep those hands busy!
