If I was referring to her thumb or soother, I wouldn’t be writing this post.
Unfortunately, I’m talking about leaded balls and peso coins (oops, did I forget to mention that?)
Perhaps it’s because she was a preemie or bottle-fed (I pumped).
Whatever the reason, I was eager to try KidCompanions “Chewelry” product and see if,
A Chewelry a Day Keeps the Doctor Away.
KidCompanions Chewelry was designed by Pierrette d’Entremont, a jeweller and Accredited Jewelry Professional. The product was initially designed with her daughter in mind, however, it’s also intended for adults.
Both Pierrette and her middle child have Tourette Syndrome and share some associated conditions like sensory issues, anxiety challenges and ASD traits. Her daughter was also born prematurely at 30-weeks gestation.
The product is made and assembled in Canada in a medical grade clean room facility. They are CE marked, sourced in North America and BPA, phthalate, lead, pcv and latex free.
She loves it and often wears her multi-purpose “jewelry” around her neck. Especially if it colour coordinates.
Whenever I find her putting something else in her mouth, I remind her to use her “chew toy” and she starts chomping on it right away.
It was temporarily misplaced and I noticed that she chewed on other things more often (or maybe I just noticed more). I was equally stressed as I really feel like this product is a healthier and safer way for her to deal with her chewing issues. Having it be wash and wear also makes my life easier.
You can see his tiny teeth impressions in the picture.
It wasn’t that he didn’t like it, more that he was busy and doesn’t have the same chewing issues as Artemis.
After reading an article on their blog about Who Can Benefit from Using KidCompanions Chewelry? I’m going to reintroduce it to him this week in the hopes that it can help with his transition away from his soother.
Note that the product is not recommended for individuals under three years.
