A teething necessity
Some of the first signs of teething include:
- Crying and Irritability.
- Excessive Drooling
- Biting - The pressure the pain creates from a soon-to-erupt tooth can be relieved by applying counterpressure. Instinctively, teething babies will look for things to bite down on to get that counterpressure and relieve their discomfort. You may notice your little one biting anything they can get their hands on.
Teething necklaces can be the perfect answer for little ones starting to search for something to bite, they offer a safe and tactile silicone bead for little ones to chew away on and sparing all of Mum’s more delicate and expensive jewellery which is irresistible but dangerous to a baby. Also since the mum wears the necklace and not the baby, the child will be making eye contact with the mum more often whilst using the teether.
Keep little hands busy
Have you found your little ones hands are constantly flying about, scratching , pulling your hair and generally fiddling when breastfeeding? This is completely normal but can be incredibly frustrating for you. Baby safe silicone necklaces are a great, safe way to keep those busy hands distracted. In addition this action can help develop and improve fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and grip strength.
