One thing I’ve found difficult to adjust to after becoming a mum is dressing my new body. I keep thinking I can’t have the same style that I did previous to having a child and being pregnant. But in reality, who’s to say that just because you’re a mum you can’t be stylish too?
I love discovering brands that embrace motherhood for all it is, and after stumbling across Two Gray Cubs over on Instagram, I instantly felt like Victoria understood what mums need.
I have been longing to find a product that makes me feel human again but that also embraces the fact I’m now a mother, and this necklace is exactly that.
“For mama to wear, and baby to chew”
I’d seen a lot of mums wearing jewellery that I often assumed was just a statement piece, thinking “wow they look really stylish”. However in reflection I now realise they were most likely teething necklaces.
What’s great about these teething necklaces is that you can find a style that suits you and works with the items you have in your wardrobe, so that you feel comfortable wearing them. For me, I knew that I needed a piece that mainly consisted of pastel shades, as I wear a lot of white and muted colours.
I was instantly drawn to Giorgia, which turns out to be the most popular colour way – and to be honest, I’m not surprised. Every outfit I seem to wear, it works perfectly with my necklace.
Made from 100% non toxic, lead free, BPA free, PVC free, mercury free, phthalate free, food grade silicone, these teething necklaces are perfectly safe for your little one to chomp away on.
It features a safety breakaway clasp, making it easy to release and super simple to slip on due to its lanyard style.
To keep your teether in tip top condition, be sure to clean it regularly. Although the silicone is odourless and cannot harbour any bacteria, it’s easy to keep clean. It can be washed on the top shelf of a dishwasher, in a steriliser or simply with hot soapy water.
Obviously aside from being a fabulous accessory for mama, this necklace primarily has the job of helping to relieve that nasty teething pain your little one is suffering from.
Archie loves something cool to relieve his gums, so what’s fantastic about this necklace is that it can also be placed in the fridge to make cold. This will help relieve even the toughest teething pain.
The perfect gift
If you’re searching for a practical gift for a loved one who is pregnant or has recently become a new mum, then this is most certainly a great idea. It’s something that a mum themselves may not think (or know) to buy but is an item that is very-much needed.
Mum life means that I spend most of my time indoors, lounging around the house. I usually spend my day in active wear (even though I’m doing anything other than a workout) or cosy jumpers. But even an outfit like this benefits from a great accessory.
My go-to outfit is always jeans, a top (usually white) and a jacket/cardigan of some sort and this necklace seems to go perfectly with every outfit I throw on.
Because it’s such a statement piece, it really makes even plain outfits pop.
Have a wedding to attend or dinner date with child in tow? Not only is your teething necklace perfect for every day, it’s also a great addition to a party outfit too. I love how it works great with every type of outfit I can think of.
If you’re looking for a way to feel like a woman again after becoming a mum, then I can’t recommend these teething necklaces enough. They’re super stylish, great for little ones and are excellent quality too.
Since wearing mine, I have received so many compliments, not only on the necklace itself, but the fact that I seem to have some of my mojo back from wearing it too. I have a new found confidence in my style and I’m fully embracing everything motherhood has to offer.
With a range of colours and styles available, there’s most certainly a style to suit everyone. To pick your own teething necklace, head to www.etsy.com/shop/twograycubs
