Babies, Chew on This!

Babies are always pulling at, biting and playing with mom's jewelry. Now there is jewelry made specifically for babies to play with and to put in their mouths.

Smart Mom Jewelry has a line of pendants and bangle bracelets that are made from food-safe, non-toxic silicone and are even dishwasher safe. The pendants and bangles come in colors that mimic natural gemstones and are safe for baby to play with and chew on.

My favorite are the donut shaped pendants that have a mod 60's look to them, so you won't actually look like you are wearing a teething ring!
