When my first baby was born, I totally fell out of the habit of wearing necklaces. (I basically fell out of the habit of getting ready everyday!) I didn’t want my necklaces to break when he pulled on them, it hurt my neck if it was a skinny chain, and I didn’t want any pieces falling off and choking him. I realized I could make my own mom friendly necklaces, and I could make it comfortable for me and enjoyable for my baby. I love that I have something cute to wear, and that I always have a toy within reach for my baby. These are the ten best mom friendly teething necklace tutorials!
