Nursing Jewelry–Fashionable and Baby Safe

Nursing jewelry is a breastfeeding mama’s best friend. Once your little one is more aware of the world around them, they may start fidgeting more and searching around with their hands while they nurse. This often leads to pinching and scratching. With a nursing necklace, though, your baby has something to look at, feel, and move around which keeps them focused on eating.

Some nursing necklaces even double as a teething necklace, meaning that when your baby starts chewing on everything in sight you don’t have to worry about baby chewing jewelry that may have parts that can break off, or metals or paints that aren’t safe. Here are four of the most popular options:


These great necklaces come in two styles: the Jane Necklace and the Perry Necklace. Both types of necklace are made of 100% silicone beads, which are safe for baby to chew and feel good on baby’s gums. These necklaces also feature a breakaway clasp so if your baby tugs too hard on your necklace while breastfeeding, it won’t injure your neck or break your necklace. The bright colors and great shapes of the beads on these necklaces are perfect for keeping your baby’s attention while breastfeeding.

Mommy Necklaces

Another popular line of breastfeeding necklaces are Mommy Necklaces. Made in the US from non-toxic beads, these necklaces offer a great way to show off your personal style with a necklace that is baby friendly. These are not designed as chewable teething necklaces, but are perfect for keeping baby interested while breastfeeding.

Jellystone Designs

Another silicon teething and nursing necklace option is made by Jellystone Designs. They have a few different styles of their necklaces and all are made with cute chunky silicone pendants, which are safe for baby to chew on as well as play with while nursing.

Handcrafted necklaces

Finally, there are many work at home moms who make handcrafted nursing and teething necklaces to sell online via Hyenacart or Etsy. One of the most popular of these sellers is KangarooCare, a WAHM business based in Europe that makes beautiful necklaces with crochet-covered wooden beads and crocheted flower features.

There is truly a nursing necklace out there for every style, and no nursing mama should be without one. I love having necklaces to wear that are safe for my baby, can withstand a baby’s curiosity, and still look fashionable.
