The nursing necklace is used to encourage baby to grasp it rather than your hair or another part of your face. When babies have teething pain they can get angry because of the pain and will try to bite something to soothe it. That’s one purpose of the teething ring. Rather than bite the bottle teat or your nipple if you are breastfeeding, your baby can grasp and manipulate the necklace while they are feeding. You and Baby can be comfortable and appreciate this moment together.
Toys alone are not enough to allow your baby to grow up. Indeed we can distinguish two different playing times : In one hand there is exploratory and solitary games, exploration of their own body and the close environment. And in another hand, there is time for relational games with you, the parent/carer, as active partner. We will see why this second part is essential to baby’s wellbeing.
