Andrew got most of his teeth very quickly and in two stents. Poor kid. His teeth hurt so badly and there wasn’t much we could do other than teething rings and cool rags. At the time I bought chew safe silicone beads to make him chewing necklaces, but by the time I got time to make them he no longer needed them. Until recently when he started chewing on Lion and on his shirts when we wouldn’t let him have Lion, I pulled out the supplies and made him three different types of chewing necklaces. The necklace cord came with plastic quick-release connectors, but he quickly started chewing on these and destroyed them. I found some small metal magnetic clasp and replaced the broken plastic ones. He thankfully only chews on the silicone beads now and has fun playing with the magnets. The necklace comes in handy to stop him from chewing on things he shouldn’t be and seems to calm him down when needed.
