Review and giveaway (closed): Dr. Bloom's Chewable Jewels!



Congrats to my winner, ReggieMann

Vivian is teething. Like a mad woman.  And she has been for ages now, so we spend a lot of time with the teething toys and gels and whatnot, trying to keep her happy. 



So, I was happy to receive a pretty combo set of Dr. Bloom's Chewable Jewels. Chewable Jewels are the original teething jewelry, invented by dentist Helen Bloom Smith. I love wearing purples, so chose this nice lavender color that matches many of my outfits.  Isn't that pretty and so perfect for spring?  The necklace is on a cord that's latex-free, but has some elasticity so it stretches just a bit when the baby yanks on it.  Both the bracelet and the pendant are made from FDA-approved food grade silicone and are free of phthalates, BPA, PVC, latex and lead. And they're waterproof and dishwasher safe- which is important, because you'll want to wash your jewelry off after your baby has been chewing on it.

I am a big fan of the teething jewelry idea.  It's hard to remember to bring teething rings or toys a lot of the time when we go out, and it's just one more thing to carry around in my diaper bag. But I almost always am wearing a necklace and bracelets anyway, so it's simple to just put on this teething jewelry- that way I am nicely accessorized and I'm ready for teething crankiness!  The jewelry does sometimes pick up a bit of lint, depending on what I'm wearing, so I generally wipe it off or rinse it off before letting Vivian chew on it, but that's simple to do.

We've been putting the Chewable Jewelry to good use lately. I think Vivian likes the colors as much as the chewy texture- she stares at the jewelry as much as she chews on it. That's my girl- loves pretty jewelry!  Here are some pictures from a recent shopping trip that she and I went on. She had been trying very hard to chew on the shopping cart handle, then I remembered that I was wearing the teething jewelry and gave her the bracelet to play with. It kept her happy and entertained for most of the time I was shopping and let me shop in peace! She refused to chew on the bracelet for photos, but after I put the camera away she happily gummed on it. Of course :)


Dr. Bloom's Chewable Jewels necklaces come in a number of colors and as circles, rectangles or hexagons. Bracelets are available in 3-packs of coordinating colors, or you can buy a necklace/bracelet combo pack. You can also get a keychain/bracelet combo. So many options! You can buy the jewelry on their website or at Target, Army and Air Force Exchange Service, La Bella Creations and daisybaby.

More good news! One of you will get to win a combo set!  Open to US/Canadian mailing addresses.
