Winner and an Explanation

Congratulations, Kristy! YOU WIN!!! Hip Hip Hoorway! I hope you enjoy your teething necklace as much as I have.

Thank you all for entering my very first giveaway! I promise it won't be the last, so keep checking back, because really, who doesnt love a freebie?

Ok, so a lot of you were skeptical about the necklace being a choking hazzard. Let me explain...

While the makers of the necklace do put a disclaimer on the product because of legal purposes, they say it is very safe for babies/toddlers. The material/string tof the necklace is actually designed to snap when it meets any resistance. Therefore, if your child gets caught on it (which I have never seen anything come close to this), it will snap.

It is impossible for the child to get off. It has a twist closure that I even have a hard time getting on and off at bath time.

I let Peyton sleep in it - that is how comfortable I feel with the necklace. Lots of my friends use them and their children sleep in them as well.

Whie I totally understand each of your concerns, I feel very safe with the teething necklace. Of course, use it as you feel comfortable.

Thank again for participating. It was hard not to post for three days!!! I promise I will be back to my picture-posting, story-telling, fab-o-blogging soon. Until then...

No way!! I never win anything!:) I think Addie on the verge of cutting something (very grumpy lately) so this couldn't come at a better time! Yay!

I feel very safe using an amber necklace on my 14 month old as well. the necklace is double knotted on each side of the bead so that if the necklace does break the beads won't spill everywhere and become a choking hazard. I've used the necklace off and on since my daughter was six months old and have never had a problem. She sleeps with hers on, too.

Meredith, think it would work if I put a necklace on your dad (he-He)...very soothing, huh?!

Will any amber necklace work? Or are some brands better than others? I need one bad for Avery! Just wondering where you got yours.
