Your baby wants to chew on everything: toys, stuffed animals, car keys, your pinky, Dad's knuckles, and his own little hands and feet. This is, of course, an absolutely normal and beneficial stage in sensory development - the best way for a baby to explore an item thoroughly is to get his little mouth around it. Plus, teething kids need things to chew on to soothe aching little gums. The Chewbeads Jane Necklace has big 100% silicone beads (no nasty chemicals!), and hangs a generous 15" from your neck so there's plenty of slack for your baby to tug and munch on; it also gives distractible babies something interesting to gaze at while they nurse.
