Teething Couture Organic Teething Necklace [Review]

We continue our series of eco-friendly baby teething products and toys. The focus here is on organic and/or natural products sold on Etsy. Babies are going to put these products in their mouth, so buying products made from natural and organic fabrics is a great investment. When babies are teething, they love to chew on everything. Additionally, once babies become more aware of their surroundings, they become easily distracted when breastfeeding. A teething necklace can become one of your strategies for keeping the baby happy and focused. Teething Couture uses the latest designer fabrics in GOTS Certified Organic Cotton to create unique teething and nursing necklaces.

1. Baby likes to chew on everything to relieve teething pain.
2. Baby is easily distracted during breastfeeding.

A Teething Couture necklace is made from GOTS Certified Organic Cotton, wrapped around unfinished wooden beads, and tied with satin ribbon to create a comfortable fit around your neck. I love that Kayla uses organic and natural materials. I feel comfortable letting my baby chew on the necklace because there are no toxic chemicals going into his mouth. The wooden beads are a perfect size  for his little mouth. The necklace has 11 wooden beads covered in fabric that hangs down on your chest. I was afraid that the wooden beads would be too heavy, but the weight of the necklace is just right. The necklace did not weight my neck down at all.

I mostly wear this necklace when attending Church or when wearing the baby at home or outside the home. I have found that the teething necklace has been very useful in Church. He can easily reach the necklace to play with it or to chew on it. The best part about the necklace is that it does not fall to the ground when the baby lets go of it because it is tied around my neck. Constantly bending down with the baby to pick up things off the floor is not good for the back and is distracting in Church. The teething necklace is like a toy that is always available. I do not have to worry about checking for dropped toys or teethers.

I ended up tying knots at the end of the ribbon tie. In case the necklace is not tied tight enough and the baby pulls on it, the knots at the ribbon ends will help to prevent the necklace from coming completely untied.

The necklace can also be used as a breastfeeding and nursing necklace. When babies become easily distracted during breastfeeding, a toy or a necklace can be useful for keeping their attention on the task at hand. Around 7 to 8 months, I started wearing my baby to breastfeed because he would easily get distracted. I wore the necklace while breastfeeding in the ERGObaby carrier. My baby was very interested in chewing and playing with the necklace instead of breastfeeding. He was still distracted and would latch on and off during the breastfeeding session. Either way, the Teething Couture teething and nursing necklace has served the purpose of teething relief very well! The baby immediately took to it and loves holding on and playing with it.

Teething Couture necklaces can be hand washed with soap or detergent and laid flat to dry. Teething necklaces are meant for adult wear only. Children under 3 years old should not be left alone with a teething necklace. Please do a safety check before wearing and letting a baby handle the necklace.

If your baby is chewing on everything, I would recommend a Teething Couture teething and breastfeeding necklace. The designer fabrics are a perfect accessory to any outfit and the baby will love the quick and easy accessing to teething relief.
