On Tuesday’s Daily Dish I reviewed Laughing Starfish, jewelry that doubles as a nursing necklace for your nursing or bottle-fed baby by day and a beautiful necklace for Mom by night. Today I have another double-duty line of jewelry perfect for curious and/or teething babies and perfect for Mom. Smart Mom Jewelry brings you Teething Bling, “inspired by babies who like to tug on our jewelry.”
What? Babies like to yank, tug, and mouth our jewelry? If you’ve got the collection of necklace casualties I do (the result of baby’s sometimes freakish strength) then you’re familiar with this phenomenon. Smart Mom Jewlery’s line of Teething Bling is a collection of baby-friendly pendants and bangles that look great on Mom (or Grandma or that favorite Aunt) but are safe for babies to handle and chew. Teething Bling products are 100% lead-free, and Smart Mom Jewelry is non-toxic and phthalate free, and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp. That means Mom won’t come close to passing out when her little one wanders off with necklace in hand—and still attached to Mom’s neck!
I received three sets (two of which we’re giving away…see details below) of Smart Mom’s Teething Bling donut pendants with matching bangles. I was impressed (aka surprised) by how solid they look yet how flexible and tooth-friendly they are. I would have worn my Mother of Pearl pendant the next day if my 2 1/2-year-old hadn’t claimed it as his own. (I can prove it with a picture of him wearing it while dancing in his big sister’s black tutu—very fashionable!) My 8-month-old loved mouthing the bangle and I found that even its simple design was enough to keep her attention—and mouth—busy in the car and at church. You know, sometimes simplicity is the best policy.
Smart Mom Jewelry is truly stylish and beautiful and a favorite of babies and moms everywhere. With Mother’s Day in just a few weeks you’ll be happy to know they have their new rose quartz hearts in stock (see photo above), just in time to give Mom this May.—Emily
