#Playdate Silicone Nursing Necklace Review & Giveaway

You may think that once you have seen one of those cute and colorful silicone nursing necklaces that you have seen them all, right? I mean they are pretty much the same a food grade piece of silicone that your little man or lady can chew on and play with....Well, you are semi correct.

The differences are huge when you really break down the necklaces and look at them, some are a poor quality, some are not as safe as others, and some might not be the colors that appeal to you, but allow me to tell you about one very awesome nursing necklace that I was privileged enough to review.

If you have followed my blog for any length of time you know I love natural things and WAHM made things, this particular nursing necklace is both! I had the pleasure of working directly with the wonderful mama who makes these necklaces. Not only is she a mama she is a wonderful person, such a sweet gem in a world of not so shiny gems. I am thankful to have had the chance to connect with her.

A few perks of this necklace...

* I love how the silicone beads go almost the entire way around the necklace, instead of simply going 1/4 of the way around. More chew room and it looks a little more like a necklace and not a baby toy around your neck. (Confession, I wore mine out yesterday and I didn't even have the baby with me).

* The way the beads get smaller in size as they go up the necklace is super cute.

* The beads are not only 100% food grade silicon they are also organic!

* These are dishwasher and boiling water safe, so if baby is sick and still chewing you can sanitize after use.

* The cord/necklace is 33 inches long which is considerably longer than most other teething/nursing necklaces. This provides enough necklace that those little fingers can keep busy while nursing, being worn in a carrier, or just hanging with mom in general.

* Did I mention that these are a neutral color so dads can wear them too?

When my necklace arrived I didn't even get to take it out of the pack before Mr Maverick stole it and claimed it as his. He loves these, half the time he would rather play with this than his actual toys!

These cute nursing necklaces would make a perfect baby shower gift, you could accessorize a diaper cake with them, or add them to any gift you may already have and you are sure to please the expectant mama!

Every time I wear my necklace everyone asks about it, this gives me the perfect chance to educate moms on natural ways to help their teething babies, and also helps me have a great conversation starter. I guess you could think of it as an "ice breaker."

  12. I like that the colors alternate. It seems like that would help keep baby's attention more than a solid color. I also like that it is dishwasher safe
