In case you missed all the previous posts I`ll state it again: I`m Pregnant with baby #2! I think I`m just enjoying saying that. Anyway, the one thing I do not miss about when Sophia was a baby was the teething stage! Oh the crankiness and chewing on EVERYTHING! Y`all know I love wearing jewelry too so of course if I was wearing it, she was attempting to eat it! Now with another baby on the way we`re going to play it smart! How? With SmartMomÂ Jewelry!
Smart Mom LLC is a truly unique company. Staffed entirely by Moms, everything is handled in our Maryland offices. That means if you have a question or concern, you`ll reach one of us. Â And because weâ€™re all Moms, we understand what itâ€™s like to have little ones underfoot. Thatâ€™s why we make it so easy for you to contact us â€“ email, Facebook, tweet, blog or call, weâ€™ll answer right away. And we donâ€™t mind crying babies in the background!A lot of companies say theyâ€™re â€˜family friendly.â€™ We are actually walking the walk. We give our team members their assignments and let them go, allowing them to work around their family schedules. We welcome children in our offices (you may hear crying babies in the background here, too!) and are always looking for ways to help other Moms. Â For us, family truly does come first.
SmartMom Jewelry was kind enough to send me one of their teething bling necklaces to check out. Now the baby won`t be here until October, or that`s the estimated due date anyway, I`m guessing sooner, I still wanted to begin preparing early. The difference between this teething necklace and a regular necklace is that even though it does have style and can be worn to business meetings and everywhere else, it actually has a soft rubber material used as the design so it`s safe for the baby to chew on! It`s made from a silicone that is phthalate and lead free, non-toxic, dishwasher-safe and federally approved.Â It`s obvious that a mom thought of this because who else wears jewelry like us and has to think of if it`s going to end up choking us by the little hands later? Point made.
So what do I think?I love this idea!It looks cool and can be worn anywhere without you looking like the crazy mom who just needs her nerves calmed. Yes, we`ve all been there just to try to soothe our babies. At least this route is painless! I actually had one of these necklaces when Sophia was an infant and boy was it a life saver! She enjoyed chewing it and also wearing it like mommy. The necklace itself is light weight so it won`t weigh you down. Also, the way the snaps are made, if the baby pulls too hard the necklace can just snap right off without breaking it or breaking your neck.
SmartMom Jewelry definitely has my approval and for as many more babies as we choose to have I intend on using this product come teething time! They have a variety of colors to choose from as well as styles. The best part is it`s safe for the baby since it`s made for your baby. You don`t have to worry about "all that dirt" they`re putting in their mouth. I highly recommend giving them a try, you won`t regret it. The friendly customer service and quick shipping was definitely a plus as well!
