I have heard these things are great, but I have a few questions. How do you keep your little one from breaking it and where is the best place or your favorite place to purchase one? Thanks in advance for all replies.

The ones I have seen and used are very sturdy. I can't imagine how my lo could break it without a scissors. They also usually have knots in between each bead so even if it was cut or broke, the beads would stay put.

I did a google search for mine and do not remember where I got it. My dd (10mo) has been wearing it 24/7 since she was 3 weeks old or so and has had zero teething drama (and 8 teeth so far).

I got mine here:

ETA: Actually, I didn't get one for my son because he was past teething by then. I got one for myself, to help with AF cramps.

I also got my daughter a couple of them from inspired by finn. She never never has noticed she is wearing it, it is so lightweight. I have one as a bracelet, I wear it doubled, and do not even notice it, it is so light. And even if she were to pull at it, it would not break. They do say though, that if it is pulled really hard, like about to strangle the child, it will break. But not if the baby just pulled at it his or herself.
