Do you ever come up with what feels like a genius idea, only to discover someone’s already thought of it? I certainly did when I thought to myself “what I need is a necklace my teething baby can chew” and yes, they already exist!
It turns out that fellow mum, Suzy, also had this idea (before me!) when her daughter Belle was teething and after researching the safest materials to use, launched Mama & Belle teething jewellery.
All Mama & Belle jewellery is designed by Suzy herself and is made from BPA-free food-grade silicone, so it’s completely safe for babies to grab and chew on. The bright colours of these necklaces and bracelets instantly lift any outfit and it certainly makes a change to wear a statement necklace that you don’t have to keep prising your baby’s hands off, or leave in the jewellery box until they’re older.
I chose a selection of necklaces from Mama & Belle to style with my own wardrobe to show my top picks from the collection.
Add colour to a classic breton and layer a bright necklace with black.
Mix different sized beads in contrasting shades.
Brighten up a black top.
Choose tonal colours and layer up different shapes.
If you’re an expectant mum, new mum or know someone who is, they’re the perfect gift or a well-deserved treat to yourself for managing all those hours spent soothing a teething baby!
Of course my eldest instantly fell in love with the necklaces when she saw them – always drawn to the brightest of brights of course! – and has this necklace from the new children’s collection of necklaces on her Christmas list!
