At a glance:

This clever necklace went down well with our panel of mum testers who loved the soft, chewable texture of the silicone beads for their tots, whilst still looking stylish. 

What they say:

“The Nibbling silicone teething necklace is made from 100% food-grade silicone, its’ heat-resistant, dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe. The necklaces are free from: BPA, phthalates, heavy metals such as lead and arsenic. They have a breakaway clasp for added safety and are tested at independent labs in the US and EU and meet or exceed product safety standards. Nibbling necklaces are intended to be worn by adults as jewellery.”

Tested by mum Harriet Poulton for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this to other mums because it is not only stylish but it has many uses. I find it most useful as something for my baby to fiddle with while she breastfeeds. The silicone beads are of food grade standard and even though my baby hasn't quite figured out how to chew, these relieve her teething discomfort and I can be confident that there isn't anything in them that could harm her. The beads are soft and a mixture of shapes which make it a good sensory experience for my baby. I like that the beads on this necklace go all the way round. I have another teething necklace with fewer beads but my baby just tends to pull on the string, so I much prefer the beads on this one.

How did this product make your life easier?

This necklace makes my life easier as it gives my baby something to play with while she breastfeeds and this stops her becoming distracted or pulling at my clothing instead. It's quite long which means it simply slips over my head to put it on and take it off without having to undo the clasp. The beads are also easy to clean. It's nice to have something practical and stylish to wear, as a new mum anything that makes you feel a bit more glam is wonderful.

Would you choose this product to win?

I have another teething necklace but I much prefer this one. I like that the beads go all the way round, it is a good length and I like that there are different shaped beads for my baby to feel and play with. The colour of this particular one doesn't go with all my outfits, but I like that there is a variety of styles available to choose from. Although I like the product, there are lots of very similar items on the market for a much lower price and because of this I would probably consider buying an alternative.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing that I would change about this product is the price, it is a bit pricey compared to similar items that you can buy and as a mum on maternity leave I wouldn't prioritise spending money on this item. Apart from that I think the product is great and I find myself slipping it on most days.

Tested by mum Stacey Matthews for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this as although it serves the purpose to help with teething, it is also very stylish, easy to put on and made to a very high standard. It would be something I would wear even if I didn't have the baby with me! The necklace is very comfy and I forgot I was wearing it at some points, which is a bonus, as my initial thought was that it would be uncomfortable and heavy around my neck, but I was wrong.

How did this product make your life easier?

As the product is around your neck, it takes away the constant need to have to bend down to pick up a teething toy that the baby has dropped. It also saves my hair from being pulled out as his focus is on the necklace which is great.

Would you choose this product to win?

This is a very good product. Both me and my baby enjoyed using this product, however, I feel he would have enjoyed brighter colours. Saying that, I would enjoy wearing bright colours less, so it’s a catch 22 and I see why the necklace was designed this way. I would say this is very good quality and very versatile.

What changes would you make to this product?

I had my hair down a few times with it on and it kept getting caught in the necklace which was quite painful. If there was a way to make sure hair didn’t get trapped in it then the product would be perfect.

Tested by mum Kirsty Fee for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product as it really helps with my little girl’s teething. I love the design and colours – it’s fashionable and easy to clean. I really like the material it's made out of and have even bitten it myself to try it out and it's actually really satisfying. It's easy to just put over my head and get on with the day.

How did this product make your life easier?

It makes my life easier because my little girl just wants to chew on anything and everything, but nothing satisfies her apart from this necklace. She will chew on it closing her eyes and almost falls asleep it must give her such a relief. She calms right down when biting on it and therefore we are both less stressed out.

Would you choose this product to win?

I think this product should win as it does exactly what it is intended for. I will definitely be recommending it to my friends and buying them for mums to be. It's really good quality, feels very safe and I like the safety fastening. It's made from a safe material and I do not have to worry about any paint or anything coming off the beads and into my baby’s mouth.

What changes would you make to this product?

If it could be made in a lighter material that would be good as it is on the heavier side and when I've worn it for a few hours my neck does start to ache a bit - but that might just be me.

Tested by mum Chrissie Belger for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this to any mum or dad for that matter. The design is great, the rubber beads are securely on, the different colours are charming for baby and it's transportable. Just pop it in baby's change bag when not in use and then pop it back on when baby fancies having a good chew. It’s very convenient!

How did this product make your life easier?

The Brighton Teething Necklace is brilliant because it looks stylish to wear and is fantastic for baby when he or she is teething. My seven-month-old boy absolutely loves it when I have it on because he can play with it and chew to his heart’s content. It helps ease those sore gums so I do think it is value for money.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would choose this product because it’s satisfying for baby and is also quite stylish. For me, what makes it stand out is the varieties of colours and designs you can get it in. I think it should win because it's great for when baby is teething and helps ease pain, it is also safe for baby as long as he or she is supervised when using this product.

What changes would you make to this product?

I honestly don't think I would change anything about this product, it's lovely, child-friendly and stylish to wear while baby is teething, so I would recommend any mummies or daddies out there to give it a try. See if your baby approves – mine certainly did.

Tested by mum Emily Martin the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product because it’s surprisingly stylish and goes with a lot of outfits that I wear. On top of this, it is made out of a lovely material and comes in a great choice of modern colours. It’s easy to clean as it is dishwasher and steriliser friendly and a good size to be able to pop into your bag with no fuss.

How did this product make your life easier?

The product entertains my teething baby whilst out in public. He enjoys sitting down nibbling it, whilst I keep a close eye on him doing so. It makes my life a lot easier by soothing my little boy’s gums and looking good doing so. I can definitely keep my child entertained for longer than five minutes out in public and at home, so that’s a great bonus.

Would you choose this product to win?

This teething necklace is the only one that I have used and I would definitely buy one. I cannot compare it to other teething necklaces as I have not used any others. But I love this product and am very impressed by the idea.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about the product it would definitely be the price. As a mum on maternity leave and a tight budget, I would love to get lots of different ones but simply wouldn't be able to afford it. Everything else about the product I am very happy about and wouldn't change anything.
