You love to accessorize, which is why you won't leave the house without a statement necklace or pair of earrings to perfectly pull your outfit together. Unfortunately, your baby may share your love for big, bold jewelry and may be doing everything he can to get a closer look at what you're wearing. If you're tired of your baby playing tug of war with your earrings and necklaces, you probably want to know how to get your baby to stop pulling your jewelry.
As Parents mentioned, babies begin to develop their pincer grasp somewhere between 10 and 12 months. Once they figure out that their thumb and forefingers can grab and hold on to things, they're going to want to get a lot of practice, which means that everything — including your hair and shiny jewelry — is fair game. Even though it may make you want to scream when your baby gets your earrings in her grip, she isn't purposely trying to hurt you. In fact, all of that practice is helping her prepare for some important milestones like feeding herself and writing, as Baby Center mentioned.
Eventually, your baby will move on to other things and forget all about your earrings. In the meantime, however, there are things you can do to discourage your baby from making your jewels the target of that developing grip. Offering a calm but firm "no" and consistently removing his hand can send baby the message that his grabbing is not ok. If you'd rather not deal with discipline, however, you can always trade in your large, colorful pieces for items that are smaller and more understated.
