Chewbeads teething jewelryThis week, in honor of World Breastfeeding Week, we’ve asked our contributors to share their favorite nursing picks.

There’s a stage of breastfeeding for which none of the books really
prepare you: the one where the baby nurses while simultaneously doing,
oh, everything else. For my kids, that meant trying to breastfeed while
sticking fingers in my nose and doing handstands.

The only thing that
distracted them enough to circumvent the acrobatics and get down to the
business of eating: when I wore eye-catching, nice-feeling jewelry.
These super-chic Chewbeads are ideal for getting babes’ attention–and they’re silicone and
BPA/PVC/phthalate-free, so they’re way safer for babies to twiddle (and
eventually chew!) than that old metal necklace from your jewelry box. – Lexi
