Gumigem’s Duchess Gumidrops teething necklace features beads and pebble shapes, ideal for soothing your teething baby while remaining stylish.
Tested by Katie Linstead 28, mum to Heidi, 15 months. She says:
I’ve never found a teething necklace in a style I like - until now! My ideal teething necklace is lightweight and brightly coloured, easy to take on and off, and not too expensive.
This was nicely presented and come in a plastic case so if it ends up covered in drool you can take it off and pop it in your change bag to dry.
This is what I imagined a teething necklace to look like but I like the style - it’s especially suited to summery or ‘boho’ clothes. It has a really lovely texture and it’s lightweight. It’s also a long necklace, which makes it particularly good for a feeding baby to fiddle with instead of pulling my hair!
Tested by Ciara O’Doherty, 36, mum to Caidan, four months. She says:
My son has been teething since he was two months old which is too young for most over-the-counter teething remedies, and he’s not yet able to hold teething objects in his mouth by himself so a necklace seems ideal.
This was my favourite necklace and the one which best suited my personal style.
My son really loved the flat pebble-shaped beads, and chewed on them constantly. I would buy this product in a few different colours. It’s a similar price to others but the website seems to have a much larger variety of choice.
I have worn this necklace a lot and it’s also been in the dishwasher several times but still looks brand new.
Tested by Linsey Robertson, 33, mum to daughter Eilidh, seven months. She says:
Despite having no teeth at seven months, Eilidh loves to gnaw on anything and everything! I haven't worn jewellery much since she was born so I am looking forward to having some baby-friendly pieces to wear. I’d love a stylish necklace that’s also good value.
This necklace stood out for me as the beads didn't look obviously chewable - they look like glass beads, whereas most of the other necklaces were obviously made of silicone.
It isn't really my style of jewellery but one of my friends picked it out as her favourite.
Eilidh liked chewing the different shape / size beads - especially the large, flat beads - and overall it’s a good long length. It's not one I would wear a lot but it could certainly complement the right outfit.
