Teething Toddler? ME! ME! I Have One!

So my now 16 month old daughter has just four teeth. She was pretty late to get her first tooth and the rest of them are just in no rush to break through. This is both good and bad. For the good part…Since I nursed her for the first twelve months of life I was pretty pumped that she didn’t have any teeth. My poor sister-in-law who nursed her twin boys for nearly 10 months was always getting bit and telling me how painful it was. {My boob just cringed just thinking about it}. For the bad part…Now that she is 16 months I feel like she is obviously more aware of her pain and boy does she let me know about it. We have kept everything pretty organic and natural here since she has been born. We have yet to give her any medicine beyond teething tablets for her teething pain. So of course I was looking for additional ways to comfort her during these difficult teething times.
I was excited to find out about Teething Bling. Remember when you use to wear pretty necklaces before you had a little who is all grabby grabby? Well, a lightbulb went off and some genius developed a necklace that is both fashionable and practical. Teething Bling is the original teething jewelry. It is made from the same FDA-approved material as most teething toys and is non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC, latex and lead free.  The pendants even include a break away clasp for additional safety. 
I was sent a Lapis Lazuli Donut Shaped Pendant for the purpose of my review which is part of their Signature Pendant collection. The silky black cord is long enough to slip easily over my head with little effort. The pendant is a pliable federally approved silicone and a lovely color that would easily compliment any outfit. You can even order a matching bangle to compliment the necklace. It is reassuring to know that the black cord has a breakaway clasp in case I happen to be holding G and we somehow get entangled. 
G absolutely loves chewing and biting on this necklace. I am certainly going to give this as a baby shower gift or recommend it to anyone with a teething child. I find that it also comes in handy as a distraction if we are waiting in line at the market or something and she is getting antsy. A low price of $19.99 for this  pendant is worth it for our sanity during those bad teething days. 
You can also follow teething bling on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. This dentist loves teething bling!! Aw- love your teething girl:)

  2. How did I not know about this before? I would have loved something like this when my daughter was younger. I definitely need to get one for my son, who at 4.5 months is already starting to teeth 🙁 Thanks for sharing your info!

  3. I'm so glad that my kids are past the teething stage, no fun! Now we are waiting for my oldest to lose his first tooth 🙂

  4. OMGosh, my boobs are cringing thinking about nursing and teeth! Luckily I didn't have issues with my daughter teething but if I did, this would be on my wish list.

  5. Teething or not, she is one sweet little girl! I love the pictures! 🙂

    I'll have to remember Teething Bling for my next one!

  6. My 16 month old finally had is 8th tooth break through this week – but I think he's working on his first set of molars now… he was a late teether too… thanks for the great review

  7. I wish I'd had one of these when Abby was teething – she always wanted to chew on my necklaces that I'd wear! Great idea 🙂

  8. I started seeing these right after my son finished teething. I wish I saw them earlier. My son's chewing habits were ridiculous

  10. Yes, I've gotten to the point where i can't wear long earrings or necklaces anymore. This could be my answer, thanks for the review!
