Chewbeads2 ChewbeadsWhen my daughter was born my husband presented me with a beautiful gold heart locket – her name engraved on the front and her birth date on the back. I love it and have worn in every day since. I never guessed that it would turn into a favorite teething toy. Every time I Bjorn my baby it seems she desperately searches for something to play with and since she is just necklace height she grasps onto my locket and gums it for dear life. I have to admit I’d prefer not to see it disappear between her tiny lips.

Apparently I am not alone in this predicament. A friend of mine witnessed the scenario and showed up at our next playdate with Chewbeads. Chewbeads is an innovative line of non-toxic jewelry created by Lisa Greenwald. The inspiration behind Chewbeads was Lisa’s teething son, who loved to put everything in his mouth, especially her necklaces. Throw on a Chewbeads necklace and let your child teeth to his hearts content. Another thing that concerns me when my baby starts gnawing at my necklace is – what if it breaks and the pendant comes off getting lodged in her throat and choking her and I can’t remember the Heimlich and disaster ensues? Chewbeads necklaces and bracelets are made to stand up to a toddler’s tugs and bites.

Having worked in the fashion industry for many years, Lisa’s designs are fashionable and stylish. The beads are made of 100% silicone and have a similar feel to pacifiers. They are soft on babies gums and emerging teeth and contain no BPA, PVC phthalates, cadmium or lead. When your beads get dirty they can easily be cleaned with soap and water or you can throw them in the dishwasher.

Chewbeads can be used in a variety of ways – necklaces are a great sensory tool to help your baby focus while nursing and bracelets can be a colorful reminder for which side you’ve just nursed. The Chewbeads necklaces and bracelets come in all kinds of fun colors like Punchy Pink and Sunshine Yellow.

You get your first Chewbeads and wonder – how can it have taken till now for someone to invent this?!
