Grabby Hands? We have plenty here!
We always hear people say how amazingly lovely, the fellow insta-parent-businessfolk they meet online are. And here's another super lovely insta friend we've met along our way. Lisa - the fabulous lady behind Mama Knows UK, designs, brands, packages and sells, gorgeous stylish jewellery which is also suitable for teething babies to chew and grab at! The main reason BabyLoved started stalking (I mean following) Lisa's insta, was because I was attracted to the designs, being a little different to other teething necklaces we had seen before.
Lisa kindly let Amy and I try out two of her stylish designs. Amy and baby Arthur have been rocking the 'Amy necklace' (would you believe) in Black Olive, and Bernie and I have been chewing on the 'Freya necklace' in mint & grey marble. Bernie also did a wee trial of his own,chomping on the 'Owl teether' in Mint green to match me which he has thoroughly enjoyed. HOW we wish we had these necklaces sooner! They have relieved the fish-hooks to the mouth, (or as Lisa put it "being attacked by an animal"), have relieved my tops of being pulled and stretched and generally made feeding so much more of a relaxing experience with a 8/9 month old. I really can't rate them enough. I've actually had a teething bangle before, which was useful for always having a teether out and about, but the necklace is so much more interesting to Bernie during feeding. Thankyou Lisa!!
Lisa started her business after having two children, like so many parents, realising that there was a gap in the market for a particular item. She relaised that parents didn't want to give up their jewellery just because they have a grabby baby during feeding. As I sit here now, I have my necklace on and no other jewellery. It's great to have the option of wearing jewellery without it being a health hazard, and it doesn't look like a teether which is brilliant. I also pass my necklace to whoever else is feeding Bernie too. It doesn't have to be just for Mama's. Lisa often has people buying from her at local markets, who don't realise the jewellery can be chewed. If you want to stalk out Lisa for yourself at a market, she is often found in and around Manchester, just keep an eye on her instagram for her next location. She has also offered Babyoved readers 20% off her entire store (including sale items) with code BABYLOVED. Please tag us all in any snaps wearing your lovely 'Mama Knows UK' jewellery, we would love to see! Keep your eyes peeled over weekend, for the launch of our triple item giveaway when Mama Knows Uk, Sorcha Sews ALot and BabyLoved will be teaming up to offer you a super dooper set of prizes!
