Considering the ins and outs that come with so many highly rated ‘teething products,’ its easy to get mixed up in all of the talk about them. Not only do they claim to work, but they may even tell you they’re made from natural products.
This can be daunting to a new parent that is just trying to make it out alive after a teething baby. However, in my personal opinion a good amber teething necklace actually does work to sooth a teething baby.
Now, this might not be for everyone since it is my personal opinion. There is also the fact that you have to purchase through a reputable company for a high quality necklace. It is important to note that every baby and mama is different.
My Findings with an Amber Teething Necklace
My son has three different necklaces that we can choose from. We also have a lighter honey colored amber necklace, a darker molasses colored necklace and a hazel and amber necklace. I usually use the darker colored one.
All of these necklaces, when he wears them get warm. This is how it transfers the pain reducing remedies from the amber stones to his skin. You can easily tuck the necklace into their shirt and it pretty much stays away from his neck.
Also, if they chew on them, though his is not long enough to reach his mouth, they’re double knotted in between each stone. So none of them are going to fall off and pose a choking hazard.
There is a lot of mixed feelings on amber teething necklaces, but like I said, it is just a thing that everyone might feel they work with. I however, do notice a change in my son (and also my daughter when she used them) when he wears it versus when he doesn’t.
My Findings With the Amber Teething Necklace
He is more calm, less cranky and doesn’t seem to be in any pain at all. However, when I forget to put the necklace on him, he seems to be the wild witch of the west. I try to remember when I can.
I prefer not to use Tylenol or Motrin and I usually do not have too when he is wearing the necklace. I don’t give these medications after shots. With the necklace, he actually doesn’t seem to be bothered by them. Score!
Whether or not you like or dislike them is your opinion. If you were curious and wanted to try them out, I say definitely give it a go. It has made a big difference in my littles and it might just do the same for yours.
They’re sold in many shops, but make sure they have the stamp of certified amber and not from just any company. They will not provide the same healing properties if they’re just regular stones that mimic amber ones. Amber teething necklaces can be found here and here.
