Bought this for my 4 mo old as I had known other moms that were using amber necklaces on their kids for teething symptoms. She is often chewing on her fingers and toys and drooling a ton, but so far rarely seems to get cranky or cry due to teething. I do take it off for baths and overnight sleeping, but otherwise she is in it all day long with no issues of it getting tangled or caught on anything. I have heard of moms that merely wrap it around their child’s ankle overnight instead of keeping it on their neck. It would be nice if it were a little shorter for this infant size, but I’m sure its hard to make a one size fits all when it comes to babies that vary so greatly.
Pretty necklace not sure if it did anything else
This is a lovely necklace and my baby has had lots of compliments on it. He has worn it everyday since we got it not sure if it has helped with teething.
My husband is a sceptic- and really I am too- but after wearing this necklace for a month, one day my five month old little one was super fussy- not typical for her. Well, while feeding her that day, I spied *two* teeth that she had popped through with little to no previous fussing- and after that one day went back to being her amazingly calm and happy self. Now, whether she is just an easy teether or this necklace helped, who knows, but I’m sure as heck not taking it off!!!I have not tested the products safety- by pulling on the clasp/breaking it (No way!) but the beads are individually knotted and the clasp is the kind that will slip free with pressure- although I hope to never test that.When people ask, I tend to deflect their “wtheck is she thinking” looks by just telling them that it is for pretties and if it happens to make her in less pain, then great. And it is super pretty! This is a great color for anything a little girl might wear- a very classic color that I’m sure will never look bad as she gets older. Actually, I would love one in a longer length for me!!!My only complaint is that it is a bit too long- she lays on it when she sleeps (on her back!). And I think that it would be incredibly uncomfortable- it leaves faint “bead marks” on her back when she wakes up. That will change as she gets older I’m sure- and also my little girl is on the small side of normal and a chubbier baby’s chubby chins might prevent that. 🙂 Also, to keep that from happening, I did try taking it off of her when she was sleeping, but I kept forgetting to put it back on. She doesn’t seem to mind, so I guess I shouldn’t mind either.Overall, I would definitely recommend this amber necklace.
Too big for my child’s neck, choking/strangulation hazard
This neckalace was way too lose on my child’s neck. So loose that he could get the beads into his mouth. I don’t think it is healthy for him to suck on it but there was no stopping him and also he could break it and choke on a bead or strangle himself. Stopped using this as soon as I saw him walking around with it in his mouth. He was one year old at the time.
Helps with pain but not with sleeping, for us
It does seem to ease my daughrer’s teething pain because she drools less with it on. It has no effect on her waking up at night/naps though, which was what I was hoping for. It looks nice, is easy to take on and off, and has held up well for a few months. It’s long enough to comfortably double-wrap around my ~23 lb toddler’s ankle at night.
