It is easy for a mum to get in a fashion rut. After all, if you even have the chance to change out of your pyjamas, your outfit will most likely be covered in spit up, drool, food or a derivative thereof. If you wear jewelry, there is no doubt that your earrings will be yanked down, your bracelet will be twisted until it pinches your skin and your necklace will be tightened around your neck. And after you are almost strangled with your own necklace, your baby will probably stuff it in his mouth leaving globs of saliva dripping from your chain right onto your skin. Classy.
This is the precise reason why mummies pack away their stylish outfits until their babies reach toddler age or whenever they stop ruining their outfits (do they ever?). But really, after having a baby all you want to do is dress the way you did before you were pregnant and this includes rocking your favorite fashion accessories. While I have no advice on what to do about hanging earrings (as my baby is yanking on mine as I type this), there is a solution for the necklace and bracelet situation: mum jewelry.
In fact, this solution really solves two problems: being strangled by your baby and baby teething. If this sounds too good to be true then you probably have been isolated at home for far too long with your baby. Joking aside, this has been the solution I have been waiting MONTHS for and I never imagined this kind of product existed.
Mum jewelry is free of any chains that can be tightened around your neck or wrist, or pinch your skin. The necklaces are composed of beading to keep you and your baby pinch free and come in a variety of different colors to match your outfits. The bangles have a square shape and make a great fashion statement on their own.
Made from silicone and free of lead, BPA, PVC and phthalate, they are completely safe for your baby to stuff in their mouths (and you know they will!). In fact, they are designed to help in baby teething. The shape of the necklace and bangle are great for babies to safely chew on and sooth their sore gums. Because they are made of silicone, it is easy and safe to wash your baby's saliva and germs off before you wear it again.
Perhaps the best part is that your baby will be so focused on chewing on your necklace that they may just leave your earrings alone (so I did have some advice on that after all!). While it's great to give your baby something safe to chew on and provide comfort, it's just as great to get your style back.
