When I have a new baby around, like many, I tend to focus more on the baby than on myself and my appearance is well… lacking in polish. I run out the door to drop one kid off at preschool while I rush off to the grocery store to get shopping done before I have to pick him up again, then rush home to shower, squeeze in some work while the baby naps (if you call 20 minutes a nap… sheesh) and then supervise the kids until dinner time relief. Did you see any time in that schedule for primping? Yeah, me either. I’m lucky if I slap on some mascara and lip balm. During this time of m life I rely on smoke and mirrors to appear I have my ish together so I’m always on the lookout for things that can add to my personal style without requiring time.
I heard of Teething Bling a while ago, before I was even pregnant with my second son, and I knew I wanted to get one. They look like a super stylish piece of jewelry… and well , they are. The disc on their fabulous pendants are about 2 inches wide so they make a proper statement. But the beauty of it is that they’re made of food-safe, phthalate-free, federally-approved silicone so they double as a safe teether for baby.
I wasn’t sure how effective they’d be but for he price I knew I’d give it a try. I am so glad I bought one because baby loves it, he always has something to chew on and I am never without something to give him. He’s yet to get his first tooth so he’s constantly jamming everything in his mouth. I’ve gotten several compliments on my bling and a few moms have said “what a great idea!”. And it is!
Ive taken to wearing it everyday to boost my appearance, while having a handy teether around. No digging in the diaper bag, no searching the house for something, its just there ready for baby. I bought a round donut pendant in a pretty turqoise (called Jade), but I have my eye on the Mother of Pearl too. They come on a black cord with a breakaway safety clasp. I know what will be in my stocking this year… Teething Bling!
Get It: I bought my bling at my favorite spot The Soft Landing!
