Teething Necklace Safety

How safe are baby teething necklaces and what precautions you should take.

The first rule of baby teething necklaces is NEVER LEAVE A CHILD UNATTENDED WHILE WEARING ANY JEWELRY BE IT A NECKLACE, BRACELET, ANKLET OR ANYTHING ELSE.

NEVER.

Though we have never heard anything about a child being harmed by a baby teething necklace, there is nothing that moves us away from our admonition about attending your child.

A second step is to consider the design of your necklace.

Knotted strings will prevent all beads from coming off a necklace. But most necklaces are single knotted so one bead will come off if a string breaks.

Therefore you must consider string tensile strength. It has to be high to make the string strong.

The European Union requires strings break at no less than 90 Newtons (21.8 Pounds) tension. See En 71.

Clasp design is also a big factor in the safety equation.

Screw clasps do not release automatically. The European Union ( EU ) says that this is a strangulation hazard so they require a clasp release automatically under a tension of 27 Newtons (6 Pounds). See En 71.

The effect of this law is that it is not legal to sell necklaces with screw clasps, the ones like they have been used for centuries with no reported problems, in Europe. They are, however, not regulated outside the EU.

Once again we say that we have never heard anything about a child being harmed by a baby teething necklace, so it may appear to some that the EU regulation is bureaucratic nonsense.

But, if you are considering a necklace, it may be to your best benefit to heed their advice.
