Chew on this, baby
By Lylah M. Alphonse, Globe Staff
Anyone who has ever traveled with a teething tot knows that, short of handing noise-canceling headphones out to everyone around you, there isn't much you can do to keep things quiet in flight. Consider these stylish necklaces another weapon in your baby-gear arsenal. Teething Bling pendants, keychains, and bangles by Smart Mom look like expensive jade, onyx, or coral, but are made from a food-safe silicone that's free of phthalates, lead, and other toxins (they're dishwasher-safe, too) and they can be chewed on. The pendants are about $19 at Hip Baby Gear (80 Washington St., Marblehead, 781-631-5556) and online through the many sites listed at smartmomjewelry.com. [More]

Pretty and practical jewelry for new moms
I wish I'd had something like this cool Teething Bling pendant whem my babies were teething, but even now, they come in handy (my 4-year-old will happily do pretty much anything in exchange for being allowed to wear the necklace to school).
