Little Sunshine Boutique Teething Accessories Review & Coupon Code
I received these items at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.
Teething. Why oh why does teething have to be such a process? We are in the thick of the teething phase with Petit Prince at the moment, and all I can really say is that every baby handles teething so differently. The Heir took teething like a champ. Sure he’d be cranky and upset here and there, but compared to Petit Prince, it was a cake walk. Petit Prince really teethes… I’m talking mega drool, swollen bumps on his gums that come and go for WEEKS before any teeth even come close to erupting, and night after night of discomfort for him and interrupted sleep for me. I know, this too shall pass. That much I know for certain, but anything that helps Petit Prince make it through this teething phase is a beautiful thing. Speaking of beautiful things, have you seen what teething jewelry is looking like these days? I’ve had the pleasure of checking out some teething jewelry and accessories from Little Sunshine Boutique, and I’ve got to say I’m impressed! With The Heir, I completely dismissed teething jewelry. Maybe it was because he seemed to take teething in stride, but now I’m wishing I’d had some when he was a baby. You see, teething jewelry isn’t just for teething babies. It does so much more than give baby something to chew on!
Little Sunshine Boutique makes a variety of teething accessories from teething jewelry for mom to wear to baby carrier accessories and teething toys, there’s sure to be something in the shop that suits your fancy! Owned and operated by Gwendolyn (a mom of four) in Arkansas, Little Sunshine Boutique is filled with beautiful and fun pieces that mom and baby will both love! The teething accessories from Little Sunshine Boutique are FDA approved, and made with 100% food grade silicone beads. That means they are perfectly safe for baby to chew on to alleviate some of the discomfort associated with teething. The necklaces and carrier accessories are all fitted with break away clasps. This makes them really easy to put on and take off, but it also adds an extra layer of safety. With these clasps, they will break open if too much pressure is applied to the piece, so you don’t have to worry about baby grabbing a necklace and pulling it away from your neck. It will simply pop open!
In addition to functioning as something for baby to chew on when teething, the teething necklaces also make a great accessory for breastfeeding moms. If you have a baby that likes to fiddle with something while they nurse or is always grabbing for something to hold onto, Little Sunshine Boutique teething necklaces are the answer! They provide the perfect distraction for baby to keep their hands busy so they can focus on the task at hand: eating!
I’ve been making use of three different pieces from Little Sunshine Boutique, and I love all of them! I also have to say just how beautifully packaged the accessories from Little Sunshine Boutique are! I love it when I get pretty packages in the mail, especially when they contain beautiful things! The first piece is one of the Elegant Silicone Teething Necklaces. It’s done with three chunky white beads in the middle, and is finished off with round mint, grey, and white beads. I’m really into mint at the moment, and grey is a staple neutral for me, so I’m just loving this necklace. Not only does it give Petit Prince something to chew on when he’s in my arms or something to fiddle with when he’s nursing, but it also just looks really nice as a piece of jewelry! I’m pretty sure that anyone who saw me wearing this wouldn’t realize it was even a piece of teething jewelry! It’s just beautiful, simple, and totally on point. I wear this one pretty much all the time now!
The next piece I have is just so much fun! It’s the Rainbow Elephant Silicone Teething Necklace and it features a hot pink elephant teether in the middle of a series of round rainbow silicone beads. It’s awesome! This is the necklace that I wear when I’m going to be wearing Petit Prince for a while. He adores chewing on the elephant teether on this necklace, and the bright rainbow colours keep him interested in it for long periods of time. The elephant teether is a really nice soft silicone, smooth on the front side, and bumpy with raised dots on the back side. It’s perfect for sore gums!
The last piece that I have is a baby carrier accessory. Now you might be thinking that a baby carrier accessory is overkill if I’m already wearing a necklace, but let me assure you that it is not! For starters, Petit Prince has two hands and sometimes he wants to hold something in each of them. He’s also a baby carrier eater. You know the type. The moment a baby carrier eater gets into the carrier, they go straight for the straps and start chewing away. Having a teething accessory clipped around the carrier strap saves my beloved carriers from being eaten alive. Petit Prince is happy to chow down on the blue elephant on this Little Sunshine Boutique carrier accessory, and I love the bright rainbow colours and heart shaped silicone beads. It adds a fun pop of colour to the baby carrier too. I’ve had a handful of moms come up to me to ask about the Little Sunshine Boutique carrier accessory. It’s so eye catching and keeps baby’s razor sharp fresh teeth off my carrier! Win win!
I have to admit that I didn’t own any silicone teething accessories until after Petit Prince was born. Now all I ask myself is what was I thinking?!?! Maybe it just wasn’t such an issue with The Heir, but when Petit Prince is nursing he needs to grab onto something. Before I had any teething jewelry, his favourite thing to grab was the top two layers of my skin. He has a total vice grip, and if his baby
talons fingernails are even just the slightest bit long, they dig into my skin and scratch my chest up something fierce. If it’s not the top two layers of my skin that he’s pulling at, it’s my hair. Either way, it’s unpleasant for me, but Petit Prince thinks it’s hilarious. Little Sunshine Boutique teething necklaces have been the solution to this problem. Now, when Petit Prince is nursing, he can grab and fiddle with the teething necklace. This quite literally saves my skin, my hair, and my sanity. I can’t fathom how I ever thought these weren’t an absolutely necessity before. They are a must have item for sure.
Little Sunshine Boutique’s teething accessories make a perfect baby shower gift too! There’s no need to wait until your baby is leaving permanent scratch marks all over your chest or chewing holes in your baby carrier. Grab some teething accessories before baby even makes his or her arrival! Trust me. You’ll be so glad you have these ready to go!
