Willow + Mae Gives Back
On May 13, 2015 as we were moving into a new house, our youngest daughter was hit in the head by a falling appliance dolly and had to be rushed by helicopter to the emergency room at Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga. There we were told she had suffered a skull fracture and a traumatic brain injury. She was in critical care in the pediatric ICU for three weeks followed by seven weeks of recovery and rehab. While she was in the ICU, we stayed at the Ronald McDonald House across the street from the hospital. The staff and volunteers there were amazing and helped us get through the most difficult thing either of us had ever experienced.
To honor those amazing people and give back to those who gave so much to us, we created a new necklace, the Sunset Miracle. The colors of the necklace are inspired by the Ronald McDonald House and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this necklace will go directly to them to support their mission to provide a home away from home for families who have a child in critical care in the hospital. Additionally, we have donated a box of these necklaces to the Ronald McDonald House in Chattanooga to give to the mothers who stay there with them. We hope that in some small way we can help others who have to go through what we experienced and share the hope that our little “Miracle” has brought to us.
A Willow + Mae Silicone Teething Necklace is a must have item for every mama!
Who would think that one necklace could do so much? More than just a unique accessory, these necklaces provide stimulation for the fussy baby, relief for a teething little one, and distraction for a nursing infant. It provides natural pain relief for emerging teeth and creates a stimulating sensory experience for little hands to grasp and explore. No one will know this stylish necklace is for infants, and you might find yourself wearing it even when your little one isn’t around. Shhh… we’ll keep your secret!
Willow + Mae only uses the best food grade silicone beads. No worries about what your baby is putting in his or her mouth! Safety first – These necklaces are not to be used without adult supervision. Breakaway clasp prevents necklace breakage when your little one pulls on it. The lack of knots allows your little one to slide the beads up and down the string, and the exposed cord along the back of your neck prevents hair pulling. These strands hold up to the real life tests of our infants and toddlers – girls and boys alike enjoy these beads! Simply rinse with soapy water or use the top rack of your dishwasher. You can also throw it in the fridge to cool the beads to soothe sensitive gums.
It’s the perfect baby shower gift for both the mom who has everything and the one who wants to keep things simple. Buy one for all the mamas in your life. (and keep one for yourself too!) All Willow + Mae products come with a Money Back Guarantee. If for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, just let us know and we’ll make it right!
