Sugarplum Collection Teething Necklace Review + Coupon Code!

Mamas oh mamas, do I have a treat for you today.  As you may know, I review products on Fridays and those products have ranged from items for yourself, baby, to craft with or just to make life easier. Today I am reviewing a product that I use almost ever single day and it has a double purpose- it's stylish for me and it's useful for my son (in several ways).  It's like the swiss-army knife of motherhood fashion.

[Disclaimer:  I have received free product in exchange for a review.  I am in no way obligated to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.]

Sugarplum Collection Silicone Teething Necklace
Over a year ago I was introduced to the idea of using a teething necklace.  My son would grab a hold of my hair while he was nursing and boy did that little guy have some strength behind that YANK!  My mother in law bought me a few teething necklaces for him to grab instead and ever since then I was hooked.

Did you realized they could be used that way?  It's true... despite the name, they aren't just useful for teething.  Almost every breastfeeding mom I have talked to says that their child grabs at something while they nurse.

{Apparently they are fun to pull on even when not nursing!}

How do Sugarplum Collection's necklace stand out above the rest in this area?
Shop owners Brittany and Diana have a variety of sizes and shapes for you to choose from when creating or purchasing a necklace.  I have the "Neutral Beige" design and I love that it has 3 different sizes of round silicone beads plus more hexagon silicone beads as well.  The variety of shapes and sizes keeps little hands busy and occupied.  They also come with a nylon cord with breakaway clasp which is nice because if babe decides to pull really hard, the necklace pops off without strangling you first!  I have an older teething necklace (different brand) that has such a loose clasp that it comes off every time I pick up my son and it gets pinched between us.  As odd as it sounds, I was happy that Sugarplum Collection's clasp is strong enough to hold up through daily wear and play yet still pops off when it needs to.

So... are they good for teething too?
You bet they are! The silicone beads are firm yet give just a little so that they cushion babe's teeth when they are hurting.  On the necklace I have, the range of bead sizes and shapes offer a variety of pieces for my son to chew on so that he can find the one that soothes him best at that moment. It's the perfect teething product because it's always with me and I don't have to dig through the diaper bag to find it!

{Getting my son's hair cut and the necklace is right within his reach- no digging around trying to find something to keep him occupied}

A lot of people don't realize this, but the teething necklaces need to be 3rd party tested to meet CPSC safety requirements. Sugarplum Collection's components and finished design are 3rd party tested. That means they have certificates proving that the components are in fact free from harmful chemicals and that the designs meet safety requirements as well.

What does all that mean?  It means that the materials are safe for your baby to put in their mouth!  As I mentioned above, they are also made with a nylon cording and I have never worried about the beads falling off or coming loose.  Not all materials are created equally, so go with a certified company such as this one to keep your baby safe.

They look great too!
Sure, style isn't quite as important as your child's safety but if you can "have it all" why not?  I found Sugarplum Collection while searching etsy for a specific color scheme.  I really wanted something that had a creamy theme to it with a touch of pink.  When I found one with the hexagon bead I was IN LOVE. This necklace is everything I was looking for.  It looks great with so many of my outfits, but I really like it with whites, cremes and dark grey too!

So if you've got a little one that nurses, is teething or if you just want a stylish necklace that your babe can tug on without worrying about broken jewelry or choking hazards these are a MUST HAVE.  Sugarplum Collection has so many colors, bead shapes and designs in their necklaces (even different color options for the nylon cord) that you are sure to find one you have to have.  Here are just a few from their etsy shop:

...and this one is my other favorite.  I think I'll be making another purchase to this shop again!

Here's the special treat for EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU.
Instead of hosting a giveaway where there is only one winner, Sugarplum Collection has offered to give everyone who uses the code "KELSIE" at checkout 15% off!  Make sure you place the order through their website for the code to work!  How awesome is that?

To keep up on new products, get future deals and to give them some love, don't forget to "like" them on Facebook and "follow" them on Instagram!  (Psst... they don't just have teething necklaces, they have shoes, bows, suspenders and more accessories for your little one).  Check out their website to take a look around.  I was so surprised by all they had!

Thanks for stopping by.  Which design is your favorite?

Happy Crafting,
Kelsie Ann
