About: Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces
Posted on 24 September 2014Teething can be a painful process for both infants & parents with remedies including everything from cold wet flannels to teething gels. One of the oldest methods available is an Amber Teething Necklace, worn around the neck to help relieve discomfort associated with teething.
Amber has been worn for centuries as a natural remedy for pain relief, to promote fast healing and boost the immune system. The analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of amber make it ideal as a natural homeopathic product for babies and children.
Amber is a natural analgesic and when worn on the skin, it releases healing oils that helps babies and young children to stay calm and more relaxed throughout teething. The active ingredient in Baltic amber is succinic acid, which was analysed by the pioneer of modern bacteriology, Nobel-prize winner Robert Koch (1886). Recent scientific research has also shown that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human organism; it strengthens the body and improves immunity.
Amber necklaces can be worn by teething children aged between 3 months to 2 years of age – which is about the time baby teething stops. By having your baby wear the necklace everyday it can help to reduce the common symptoms related to teething such as; redness in the cheeks, swollen gums, drooling, irritability, nappy rashes and fevers. Many parents will notice that their children are calmer, more relaxed and sleep more soundly when using an amber teething necklace.
Our Baltic Amber Baby Teething Necklaces have been designed to ensure the safety of your child by knotting before & after each bead so in the event that the necklace does break only one bead will come off and the remaining beads will stay intact. The clasp is made from an amber/plastic, with a plastic screw mechanism. The clasp is tested to release if excessive force is applied to the necklace, which ensures the highest safety. Unlike traditional clasps used on children’s necklaces, which do not release, they rely on the ring or necklace breaking to release.
Amber necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing! Please supervise your child while wearing the necklace.
General safety measures:
Teething necklaces should be removed when baby is sleeping or unattended.
Amber will crack and break under too much pressure.
All beads used are small enough to be swallowed but not pose a choking hazard.
Please use caution and supervise your child while using the necklace.
