It is so important that your necklace has been designed safely and is made from baby safe products.

Materials
Before purchasing, ensure that the company you are buying from details exactly what the necklace is made from. All components should be Non toxic and very importantly they need to be washable and made from materials that will not harbour germs.
baby will be sucking and chewing on your nursing necklace and they should be designed to cope with this. 
Non Toxic acrylic and plastics, Natural wood, food grade silicone, resin and Non Toxic metals should be used and detailed in the product description.

Safety Testing
Select a well established company that carries out safety testing and uses safety tested materials. It is important that designs have been tested for breakage and that the manufacturing company has a strong reputation. Although there are no requirements to safety test under British standards, any company who takes safety seriously will test to  BS / EN toy standards to ensure that their products are safe for interaction with babies.

Testimonials
Finally, check out the manufacturers website as well as Amazon and Ebay for information and testimonials from actual customers. Many companies use celebrities to endorse their products, how ever it is unlikely that these celebrities actually provide approval as many are given items as gifts. It is more important to trust actual customers.

Design
Of course it is very important that you choose a beautiful design that you like, but that baby will enjoy playing with too! Lets face it, babies love to grab jewellery and they will grab your necklace what ever you wear, Our advice would be that you pick a design that you love, that makes you feel great, that is safe and one that you can wear without feeling as though you have a toy around your neck.
