At Maddie & Me the Safety of your baby and our products is our number one priority. So I can proudly say that our Teething Toys have been independently tested and certified to Australian Safety Standard AS/NZS 8124 and our Dummy Chains to EN 12586.
This includes the toxicity of our beads, which are free from BPA, Phthalates, Lead, PVC, Mercury, Cadmium and Latex. This means there`s no nasty chemicals and silicone is a versatile material for our teething needs as it does not support the growth of mould or bacteria, can be placed in the fridge or freezer.
Silicone Necklaces are no longer referred to as “Teething” Necklaces. Necklaces are not intended to be chewed on as they pose a choking risk. Please never leave your necklace unattended with a child under 3. Do not let children under 3 wear your necklace. Necklaces are not toys, and do not meet the Australian Standard for Toys. Necklaces are an alternate option for Mothers to wear that are durable, easy care and washable. They are designed as a sensory stimulation for babies to touch whilst being held or fed, and hopefully we can save a few hair strands, precious necklaces and maybe some nipple tweaking.
Dummy Chains are not teething toys and are not designed for chewing on. They must only be used for attaching dummies to a child’s clothing garment. Never leave your child unsupervised with a dummy chain or teething toy. This includes when your child is sleeping.
