Organic cotton and wood. Pure and simple.

It all began with my newborn baby, Paxton. He was restless and distracted while nursing, and I needed something to occupy his busy hands and keep him focused and content during feedings. As a leader in a local breastfeeding support group, I knew that other mothers had found success using nursing necklaces, so I decided to make some myself that would be soft, comfortable, attractive, and easy to use. Fortunately for me, they worked like a charm!

My nursing necklaces soon found another important purpose when Pax began teething and needed pain relief for his sore gums. The maple wood rings and fabric covered beads were soft and smooth, yet firm enough to provide gentle relief when my little guy chewed on them. They were the perfect natural solution! They made me more comfortable while nursing, soothed my teething baby, never got dropped on the floor, and made me feel like a fashionable and cute mama!

I knew that other new moms shared similar experiences to mine, so inspiration struck, and Pax Organics For Baby was born! We all want our precious babies to be happy and healthy. So when I began creating teethers designed to go in babies' hands and mouths, I knew that they would need to be 100% safe and organic.
- CPSC/CPSIA compliant
- No toxic pesticide or fertilizer residues on fabrics
- No cords or strings that could break
- No fabric glues
- No plastics, BPA, or synthetic materials
Just organic cotton and wood. Pure and simple.

All of my teethers are natural, organic, easy to care for, and comfortable to wear. Each item is carefully handmade by me in the sewing corner of my Bay Area, California home. I sew while surrounded by toy tractors and wooden blocks, but I wouldn't have it any other way! :)

Thanks for checking out Pax Organics For Baby!

Additional policies and FAQs

"How do I care for my necklace?"

Hand wash in cold water with gentle soap and let dry completely before resuming wear. Cool iron may be used as needed on the fabric ties.

"Do you take custom orders?"

Yes!! If you would like to mail me your own fabric to have it made into a cute necklace, please convo me! Also, if you see a listing with a fabric that you love, but would prefer an alternate style (ring/all bead) let me know! I can usually accommodate special requests.

"What are the safety warnings for this product?"

Necklaces are for adult wear only. Never leave a child under the age of 3 alone with them. Check necklace carefully before each use to ensure that it is in good condition, with no loose seams, fraying, cracking, or damage. Discontinue use at first signs of damage.

"What does it mean to be CPSC/CPSIA compliant?"

CPSC stands for the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The Commission’s regulations require testing for lead, pthalates, and flammability for ALL children’s products. The Commission requires additional physical and mechanical safety testing for certain products, such as toys and teethers. This includes meeting standards for use and abuse, small parts, and acceptable labeling and tracking information. Pax Organics For Baby is a registered Small Batch Manufacturer, which means that we are exempt from certain third party testing requirements, where the materials used (natural fibers) are exempt. However, my necklaces HAVE undergone and passed CPSC/CPSIA mandated physical and mechanical testing and labeling evaluations. What this means to you: My necklaces have been tested for safety because it is legally required, but more importantly, because I care about the safety of every baby.

"How can I contact you?"

If you have any questions, special requests, or concerns, you can convo me through the Etsy message system. I also can be reached via email at paxorganicsforbaby [!at] For shop updates, behind-the-scenes looks, and special deals and coupons, follow me on Instagram @paxorganicsforbaby and like my Facebook page,

"Why should I buy an organic teething or nursing necklace?"

Pax Organics For Baby believes that a product designed to go in your baby's hands and mouth should be 100% safe. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic pesticides, insecticides, or chemical fertilizers. Conventional cotton accounts for nearly 25% of insecticide use each year, making it one of the most heavily sprayed crops in the world. Why does this matter? Because pesticides are known carcinogens, and chemical exposure is hazardous to agricultural workers, the environment, and consumers. By choosing to buy organic, you are choosing to protect groundwater, animal life, air quality, workers' health, sustainable agriculture, and the well being of your baby.

"What is your GDPR policy for customers in the EU?"

At Pax Organics For Baby, we care about your privacy, and under the new GDPR Law introduced in the EU on the 25th of May, we've taken steps to make sure your personal data is safe and secure. In line with the new law we'd like to remind all EU members that we only keep your personal data for the length of time as is necessary for processing of orders and for our own tax records. You also have a right to any data we keep and that your inclusion in our group/page is voluntary and you can subscribe at any time.
