Handmade Natural Wood and Hemp Nursing/Teething Necklace
Natural Maple Hardwood * Chemical-Free Suede * 100% Baby Friendly
Soft and sturdy suede cord that is fully adjustable with sliding knots holds a brightly colored shell ring and a Maple wooden disc. Wood is hand-brushed with organic beeswax and olive oil to protect from splinters (and slobber!). This item is typically engraved with a name or saying. You may leave it as it, or request your personalization in the notes to seller (see FAQ for details!)
This all natural handcrafted necklace is the perfect distraction for the busy nurser. Babies tend to find painful ways to occupy themselves, such as twisting and pulling. Let them instead twist and pull on this simple, strong necklace to keep your nursing sessions relaxed and painless!
Necklace doubles as a teether while you are holding your baby and they are fishing for something to grab and bite. Instead of biting on beads treated with chemicals or paint/lacquer, they can bite on this all natural and organic baby-safe piece.
A nursing necklace is a beautiful investment. Nursing, as well as teething, is a stage in their life that passes by so quickly. Keep a part of that stage in their life! Once baby is done with their necklace, you can cut its cord and retain the pieces in a memory box, make a sentimental craft, etc! The possibilities are endless.
WHY OUR NECKLACES STAND OUT:
We use high quality REAL suede and hemp that we have to special order within the U.S., not the made-in-china stuff in the craft stores. I wouldn't want my baby chewing on that--yikes! I have viewed full reports on the contents of the suede I use as well. Every single inch is free of lead, pcp, mercury, formaldehyde (this is used in a shocking amount of products), chromium VI, cadmium and other carcinogenic/hazardous chemicals that are commonly used in the cheap cords and dyes. This suede EXCEEDS quality standards.
Every wooden piece of this necklace is natural maple hardwood. Craft stores often offer cheap pressed wood and beads that are lightweight and chemical-laden. Most of the craft store items come from China. You will feel the difference in our necklaces. Please, DO NOT give anything to your baby to chew before you know the origin of the materials. Our wooden rings have been tested for teething safety standards.
We hand brush our wood with a blend of organic beeswax and olive oil. Our beeswax comes from US beekeepers and is certified organic. Our beeswax complements the olive oil perfectly, not only giving the wood color from oiling but also better sealing it to prevent splintering and preserve the wood.
Our Baby Products:
All of our baby products are handmade in Pennsylvania.
Please note: Necklace is not a toy, and should not be taken off and given to baby unsupervised.
