The pregnancy and the early motherhood are two periods from the woman’s life which contain an equal amount of sanity-threatening situations and absolute bliss. Being the mediator between a bright new tiny human and the huge wide world is a challenging experience and you can’t jump into it unprepared.
Sometime between the parenting lectures, the tons of articles and books on breastfeeding, weaning and educational methods, you’ll need to think of yourself also. And guess what? We have an exciting life hack to offer you. This is the silicone ring. And let us explain why.
An uncomfortable fact about pregnancy is that your hands will most probably get swollen very often. Even if you’re lucky enough not to gain any weight, swelling is quite possible to occur once in a while. That’s when you’ll need to take off your wedding ring and pray to the gods that you’ll be able to wear it again someday.
Or you can do something smarter by buying a silicone wedding ring, which you won’t need to take off. Because it’s softer, it’s more comfortable, it fits better and it allows some space for swelling without ever hurting your finger.
Once the pregnancy is successfully over, the real fun begins. You’ll never know the number of substances you can get your hands dirty with until you become a mother of a newborn and a toddler. Poop and diaper cream seem a combination bad enough, until you start adding pureed vegetables, mud, ink, glue and a permanent marker to it. And if, just IF, your wedding ring fits your finger again after pregnancy, you better don’t put it on for the next five years to prevent permanent damage.
Or you can do something smarter, right? The silicone ring is easier to clean and, let’s say it straightforward – your heart won’t break that hard if it gets damaged. The wedding ring is valuable as a symbol, rather than a subject itself. The silicone ring is affordable and you can change it multiple times until those crazy days are over and your jewelries aren’t at constant risk of destruction.
Last, but not least – your little buddy will be as gentle as the first flower of spring. Your hands will be their first shelter and the safest place on Earth for the first years of their life. You need to make that place soft, caring and comfortable enough for them.
A metal ring, especially if it has a diamond or another kind of gem, is not really appropriate to wear in this period. It could easily scratch, pinch or hurt the gentle skin of the baby. Then, once again, you’ll have to remove your ring very often during diaper change, breastfeeding, cuddling or bath time. Well, in other words, you better don’t put it on at all.
Unless it’s a silicone ring. The soft, hypoallergenic, medical-grade silicone of the Maui rings is absolutely safe to wear until you bond with your new favorite person on Earth. Because babies need constant gentle care, but being able to wear the symbol of the great love, which gave life to that same baby, is what will make your happiness complete.
