Teething necklaces offer mums a way of soothing their teething baby while still looking stylish, despite the dribble. Choose a teething necklace in a bright colour to add a pop to your outfit, or pick one in muted tones to match any dress.

Your teething baby can gnaw on the safe silicone beads, soothing sore gums while you cuddle them. And once you put your baby down, these styles look just like normal chunky necklaces - no one would know! However, if you do give your baby a teething necklace make sure there is always an adult present as the FDA say they can present a risk of choking, strangulation and infection.

Here are the best teething necklaces:

This teething necklace has geometric beads, in a rainbow colour combo. It would work perfectly with a stripy Breton top or alongside a white tee. Little ones are going to adore the bright colours, and most importantly enjoy having a chew on those squidgy silicone beads. It is made from high quality, BPA-free silicone is perfect for keeping busy hands occupied during feeds and helps develop tactile awareness.

Review: "Beautiful colours my baby loves to grab onto it, long enough for it to go over your head without having to undo the clasp, nice quality, really happy with this purchase."


A handmade, silicone bead teething necklace designed in a classic and versatile colour palette of jet black, slate grey, light grey, marble and white, on a black satin cord. The BPA free beads are made from the same material that bottles and dummies are made from, so they are safe and fun for your little one to chomp away on whilst serving as a stylish fashion accessory for Mumma!

Review: "This necklace is fab, comes in a cute bag making it a perfect gift and the stylish monochrome means it goes with any outfit. My son uses it to twiddle when feeding and it is great for him to chew now he is teething. The pull clasp is great too as on more than one occasion he has been holding it when I have tried to move away and rather than strangling me the necklace had come off and he has been able to continue chewing. A really lovely product."


Pebbles u0026 Lace silicone necklaces are perfect for teething, breastfeeding, babywearing or for when you just want to wear a piece of stylish, baby-proof jewellery. They create on trend and safe products that will keep your baby amused, happy and comfortable, with the added bonus of you looking amazing.

Review: "These are amazing. LOVE them! Bought 2 - grey one and this mustard yellow one. Wear them all the time and daughter is forever chewing on them. Lots of compliments!! If I wasn't on no pay part of maternity leave I would buy lots more to go with other outfits. Highly recommend for quality, style and most importantly chewability for babies!"

Featured in The Observer Magazine, this is a very versatile necklace with its four-coloured silicone beaded design. BPA free, phthalate free and non-toxic it is easily cleaned with soapy water, a sterilizer or in the dishwasher.

You'll look stylish while knowingly staying practical and soothing for your teething baby with this 'Molly' design, in pastel tones that will go with all sorts of outfits. Possibly plump for a dark jumper to hide the dribble stains, mind.

Tested by Linsey Robertson, 33, mum to daughter Eilidh, seven months. She says: "Despite having no teeth at seven months, Eilidh loves to gnaw on anything and everything! I haven't worn jewellery much since she was born so I am looking forward to having some baby-friendly pieces to wear. I’d love a stylish necklace that’s also good value. Lovely packaging in a stylish linen bag. The necklace is good value, and the mix of colours suits my personal style."

This timeless stainless steel teething necklace is made up of two loops held by a cotton cord in a selection of colours. One loop is flattened and the other rounded and holding three smaller beads. It's designed to look beautiful on and most importantly to be engaging for little fingers - an ideal distraction during feeding. The necklace is cool and non toxic, so it;s BPA, lead, cadmium and phthalate free. Simply wash it in the dishwasher or in soapy water.

Review: "I love this necklace, so does my little one both when breastfeeding and bottle feeding. Reduced the hitting and pinching dramatically! It does not look like a baby item and looks stylish with most outfits. And as a bonus, I also find myself fiddling with it when watching tv in the evenings!"

This hand-made teething necklace is super-safe for your baby to gnaw on. It'll look great with most outfits and is 65cm long but can be easily trimmed if you want.

Review: "This has been an absolute god send recently. I brought it a little while back, at least 3 months ago and my son wasn’t that interest at first so I stopped wearing it. I put it on because it went well with a new top I bought, since then I haven’t taken it off unless my son pulled it off. It is constantly in his mouth. And if not he’ll play with it in his sleep when he’s on me or when he’s feeding. It is one of the best things I have ever spent money on."
