If you have kids you know how horrible teething can be at times. Wouldn’t it be nice to provide your child with a natural alternative to the medicines that only help a small fraction of the symptoms? Wouldn’t it also be nice that this natural alternative be stylish, and have other health benefits as well? I first heard of Amber Teething Necklaces a few months back, and I’ve been learning about them ever since and what I’ve learned has really impressed me!
Amber is the fossilized sap from prehistoric trees that grew primarily in Scandinavia and elsewhere around the Baltic Sea. Amber is a resin, not a stone, and therefore warm to the touch. In Fact it’s quite nice when I get up in the morning to put on my daughter’s necklace and unlike all my other jewelry, the Amber teething necklace isn’t cold! So it’s quite easy to get it on Jade.
“Amber has actually been worn for centuries as a natural remedy for pain relief, to promote fast healing and boost the immune system. It has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties which make it ideal as a natural (no drugs) homeopathic product for babies, children and adults alike. Amber’s anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are also recognized by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic.”
And this is just the start of all the benefits that Amber has!
I could go on and on about what I’ve learned about Amber, but that would take too long. In a nutshell, it’s amazing for pain relief, a mother’s dream for teething babies and children, and it’s absolutely beautiful! Although one bit of information I learned, is contrary to what the name makes you think, Amber Teething necklaces are not to be chewed! When I first heard of them, I did actually think it was some kind of necklace that was meant for the child to chew and I thought it was a little odd. But upon further research, I learned that it’s the contact that Amber has with the skin which causes the healing properties, not the chewing. And in fact because Amber is brittle, it is recommended to never let your child chew it, as it could crack or break under intense pressure.
Many of you know my name is Amber. I was actually named Amber because it is my mom’s favorite “stone” and her favorite color. I never really quite understood why my mom loved it so much until I started looking through Teething Tots Boutique and saw all their stunning collections of Amber Teething Necklaces! Now I know why she thought Amber is so beautiful and I’m quite proud to carry the name now.
Teething Tots is a home-based, ‘mommy’ run business located in beautiful Canada (I love Canadians)! Corie is a mom of 2 beautiful little girls. She first discovered Amber’s healing properties when her first daughter was teething. It made such a difference that when her second daughter came along, she immediately started using an Amber teething necklace when she was only 3 months old, and basically the entire teething catastrophe was averted and went unnoticed! So not only is Teething Tots ran by a great mom, but a mom who is also converted to it’s effectiveness through experience!
I knew Jade was due for a few new teeth soon, so after looking through all that Teething Tots had to offer, I knew this was the place I wanted to utilize for our new Amber Teething Necklaces! What I love about Teething Tots is that they have a large selection of different styles, cuts, and colors of Amber Teething necklaces and they even offer Mommy and me sets! I’m all about Mommy and me sets!
To my amazement the shipping from Canada to here in rural Idaho actually didn’t take very long at all! And soon we had our very own Mommy and baby MultiColor Amber Necklace set! As you can see, it is absolutely Stunning! And best of all, because of their modern look, design and cut, they go with just about every outfit I own, as well as blending well with Jade’s wardrobe!
When I first pulled them out of the package, I was a little worried as the necklace seemed a little small and I wasn’t sure how I was going to get it over my head, or Jade’s head to actually wear it! It took me a few minutes to realize there was a closure that could be opened; they aren’t one solid round necklace that you put over your head! Now that I know it is there, I love is that this closure blends completely with the necklace! I mean, how often do you wear a necklace and it actually stays put instead of rotating to show off the closure of the necklace in the front when it’s suppose to be in the back? With these teething necklaces you don’t have to worry about constantly rotating the necklace back around, because the closure blends so well!
The Amber teething necklaces from Teething Tots are secured with a traditional screw clasp, not a hook and ring. The clasp is made from an amber/plastic, with a plastic screw mechanism. In fact the plastic screw mechanism is the only part of the entire necklace that is made from synthetic material. It is also designed to release if excessive force is applied to the necklace, which ensures the highest safety. I absolutely love how simple it is to “screw” the 2 pieces together and it gives a very secure closure, which I’ve been quite impressed with. I don’t have to worry about the necklace clasps coming part while Jade is wearing it, yet at the same time I know if it were caught on something it would come apart so as not to choke my daughter. Yet, even still, common safety precautions should still be taken while using any necklace of this nature with young children such as removing it when baby is sleeping or unattended.
Another feature I love about the Amber teething Necklaces from Teething tots is that each Amber resin bead features a knot before and after each bead. This is not only fashionable but mostly so in the event that the necklace does break (it will break if excessive force is applied) only one bead will come off and the remaining beads will stay intact. Again, always thinking of safety!
Jade has been wearing her necklace for a while now. She absolutely loves it! Unlike medicine for teething, I don’t have to fight Jade to use this method! She enjoys the necklace and it looks so cute on her. She now has to wear it every day, and this is her choice! I kept waiting for Jade to start teething so I could see how well this necklace worked. I knew she still had a few teeth to come in, those nasty molars in the back. I waited and waited, all the while she’s been wearing the necklace every day. I finally gave up knowing I needed to get this review written. So I just did a spot check on her teeth, and to my shock those teeth I was waiting on are already through! There was no signs at all that usually accompany her teething, so I though it hadn’t happened yet and to my shock I had completely missed it! So, I’m quite pleased with how well it has worked for Jade.
Now as I said, these Amber teething necklaces aren’t just for babies! Moms can enjoy them right along with the little ones! Not only do I love how it looks, which that would be a reason for owning one all by itself, but it has also helped me with pain relief! I get constant migraines, yet since wearing the Amber teething necklace daily, my migraines aren’t as severe! I do still get them, but the pain is manageable now, instead of having to hide in a dark and silent room! Also a few years ago, I had some dental work done, in the process of rebuilding the tooth, they didn’t go far enough which has left a gap between two molars. This means every single bite I take, food gets stuck between the teeth and it really irritates my gums. It’s been a cause of great pain after each meal, and usually the pain lingers for hours afterwards. It also would cause my teeth in that area to be extra sensitive. After wearing the Amber Teething necklace, I’ve notice a dramatic decrease in the pain and teeth irritation. I actually have some meals where I don’t have any pain at all, just the pressure irritation of feeling food stuck between my teeth, but no pain! For me, these are added benefits, because I just simply love the look of the necklace!
Overall, I’ve been quite impressed with the Teething Tots Amber Teething Necklaces! They work with very select manufacturers in the baltic region to ensure that the necklaces they feature have the highest concentration of succinic acid (the active ingredient) than amber found elsewhere in the world. And all the beads are certified authentic Baltic amber! They have a lot of great information, including health benefits, and FAQ’s on their website to answer any question you have about their products, and they are some of the most beautiful Amber necklaces I’ve seen! And best of all they have worked amazing for us!
