BabyBling0044When 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!
