Round silicone beads are made from certified food grade silicone that is used, for example, for making baking pans. Thanks to that and the wide colour scale, they’re great not only as trendy accessories but they are mainly used by mommies during nursing. Beads on a neck can divert a baby's attention while nursing because the baby can tug on them and play with them. Thanks to the tested material, moms don’t have to be afraid if their babies want to bite the beads. That’s why they are also called teething or nursing beads, because they can help the baby to stimulate the gums, ease the pain and at the same time speed up the cutting through of the first teeth. You can easily string the beads on a sturdy nylon satin cord. You can also combine them with other silicone beads, for example beads in various shapes or beads with letters.
