As a mum, your jewellery is probably going straight in your baby’s mouth as soon as your child is drawn near to you. Whether it’s a necklace or a bracelet, babies love to explore the world with their mouths. This is especially if they are teething, as one of the ways that babies find relief from the pain is to find something solid to chew on.
The Problem with Regular Jewellery
However, you may also be concerned that your jewellery may break in their mouths, which could cause them to choke on small parts, or you may worry that there are chemicals used to create the jewellery which could cause them harm.
You also don’t really want your jewellery to get damaged.
Finding Baby Friendly Jewellery
Finding beautiful jewellery that is safe for babies and pretty enough to wear can be difficult. If you want a natural angle to your jewellery and baby products too, then it can be even more difficult. That’s why Amber Pumpkin is a great little find. They find products that are eco-friendly as well as being aesthetically pleasing and safe for your baby. The products that they have on offer vary from teething and nursing jewellery to toys and skincare, all natural and eco-friendly. Their own products contain amber that helps the healing process in teething babies.
Benefits of Amber Jewellery
There are many benefits to wearing amber jewellery. Amber is a natural substance that is very potent. It is essentially fossilised tree resin, but it has many therapeutic qualities. They can provide pain relief for the head, neck and throat, and can also help to ease the pain of aching muscles and joints. These qualities make amber a good material for your child to wear whilst they are teething. They are worn around a child’s neck or wrist.
Adults that interact with children on a regular basis can wear amber jewellery to benefits to their children. They have a calming effect on both you and the baby.
However, amber jewellery cannot be chewed, and therefore may not be suitable for younger children. Because amber is made into beads, you may decide that it is unsafe for children to wear. If you want to have amber around your baby, then consider wearing amber yourself. There are many designers creating jewellery that babies can chew on safely made from silicon or rubber that won’t break apart into tiny pieces.
