There has been a lot of discussion lately about amber teething necklaces. There is little scientific evidence to suggest amber will soothe your teething baby and in fact, some expert advice suggests amber necklaces could pose a safety risk.
Silicone teething necklaces offer mums a way of soothing their teething baby while still looking stylish, despite the dribble. Choose a teething necklace in a bright colour to add a pop to your outfit, or pick one in muted tones to match any dress.
Your teething baby can gnaw on the safe silicone beads, soothing sore gums while you cuddle them. And once you put your baby down, these styles look just like normal chunky necklaces - no one would know!
Here are the best teething necklaces:

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. Lovely packaging in a stylish linen bag. The necklace is good value, and the mix of colours suits my personal style."
