Review: Chewbeads teething necklace

Written by Michelle Lloyd

There is nothing worse than seeing the pain of a teething baby or toddler.

The constant gnawing, drooling, winced face, the never ending shriek of pain… it has been our world for the past 6 months. As soon as little man breaks a tooth, another one begins to emerge.

I’ve done everything possible to make it more comfortable for him, but sometimes all you can do is hold them and let them know it’s ok.

We have a large amount of teething items, but my favorites come from Chewbeads. While holding him, he can gnaw on my necklace through the discomfort.

Chewbeads has a full line of teething necklaces, bracelets, teethers, and even Juniorbeads. We were sent a Waverly Necklace to review, and I’ve been able to try the rest of their products since, and I’m very impressed.

There are many kinds of silicone teething necklaces on the market, but most are bulky, heavy, and pick up hair/fuzz easily. I don’t feel like wearing something that I know I’ll have to wash multiple times a day before letting little man chew on- so I ditched those necklaces quickly. Fuzz does not cling to Chewbeads, though I do recommend washing each time you put on and take off he necklace.

The Chewbeads necklace is lightweight, made with fun bright colors, has a break-away clasp- so no way mom can get choked, it’s soft on baby’s emerging gums, and is great for a nursing distraction as well. Chewbeads are all made with 100% silicone beads, which are free of BPA, phthalate, cadmium, lead, and heavy metals.

Chewbeads necklaces range from $29.50-$36.50.

Our favorite Chewbeads item is their Stack and Play- Peace, Love, Star teether set. You basically get 9 tethers for only $25! They also have several other Stack and Play sets and other individual silicone teethers.

The Junior line of Chewbeads is great for children with sensory issues who love to put things in their mouths! I love that they have safe jewelry that all kids can enjoy. The Juniorbeads runs from $18.50-$23.50.
