Dexter seems to have gone from 0-100mph with regards to teething over the past six months. We waited six months for his first tooth to pop through then there was nothing for ages. At eight months he got his lateral incisors through and that was it for months. Every time he smiled he looked like a vampire and people cooed at the cuteness of it all.
The last couple of months have my only seen his remaining five front teeth come through, but also four molars as well. It has made for quite a grouchy baby who is desperate to shove whatever possible into his mouth to relieve the pain. I quite often find him walking around with Duplo, a nasal aspirator and remotes hanging out of his mouth, whilst the carefully purchased teething rings lay on the floor unused and redundant.
Mama+Belle got in touch just at the right time to offer us to try one of their beautiful teething jewellery pieces. Mama+Belle was launched in 2014 by clever Mum Suzy who saw a gap in the UK market got fashionable and trendy teething jewellery. All the jewellery is made from 100% high quality food grade silicone (the same as dummies and bottle teats) The silicone that they use is odourless, tasteless and does not harbour bacteria which is so important when you consider the bad press some products get for growing mould (Tommee Tippee anyone?)
Suzy gave me the option to choose whatever I wanted from her easy to navigate and stylish website and I picked the Isla Blossom necklace (mainly because I LOVE that colour green).
I fell in love with the necklace as soon as it arrived. It looks visually stunning and both my Mum and my husband were both surprised when I offered it to Dex as a teething aide as they assumed it was a proper piece of jewellery. The multi coloured aspect means it goes with a wide range of my outfits and brightens up my usual mama look of white vest top, leggings and a grey cardigan.
Most importantly, Dex loves to give it a good chew. It saves him trying to pull my hair out when I am carrying him around and is a good distraction when I am changing his nappy. Check out Mama+Belle’s stunning range of teething jewellery on their website.
I am super excited to be offering my readers the opportunity to win a teething necklace for yourself and your little one. All you have to do is enter below! Best of luck.
