Teething isn't very nice to mum or baby/toddler. Paige at 14 months has just got 3 extra teeth in the past 3 weeks. They cause her pain and she loves nothing better than biting on something to release the pain.
One cool product to help a teething baby/toddler is the Gumigem teething jewellery. They are made from non toxic medical grade silicone so your baby can chew on them and they are perfectly safe. They can also be put in the dishwasher, sterilizer or into hot soapy water (you just need to remove the cord and clasp).
I love that the Gumigem jewellery doesn't look like a traditional teething toy. You could actually get away with wearing it when your baby wasn't around and no one would think anything of it. The first time Mark saw it he was very surprised at how good it looked, he then touched it and realized it was a silicone material. I have the Traditional heart pendants in Opal Ice.
I think one of the best features is the break away clasp. If you follow me on Twitter you will know that a few weeks ago Paige actually broke my mothers day necklace. She wasn't trying to chew it but just pulled the necklace and it snapped as it was very delicate. With the Gumigem necklace if she were to grab it and pull the break away clasp allows it to come undone safely. This stops it getting broken and stops the worry we feel as a mum sometimes. Babies don't quite understand the effect that breaking something has.
As for the actual teether I am very impressed. Paige loves chewing on it and it seems to help her. It is a nice texture so isn't too hard or too soft for her. It is the perfect size for her little chubby hands to hold. She wouldn't let me get a picture of her chewing it as her new favourite thing to do is run away from mummy but I promise you that she does enjoy using it and it seems to help.
It really doesn't look out of place around my neck as a necklace and no one would even know it was a teether.
Gumigem have a ranges of products available including pendants from £10, necklaces from £15.95 and bangles from £8.95. They can be purchased from HERE. I think these prices are very reasonable as you are in fact getting a piece of jewellery and a teether!
Have you tried Gumigem? I'd love to know what you think.
