After Hyland’s teething tablets were recalled, I was on a mission to find another way to help curb Kaylee’s teething pain, naturally. That’s when I was introduced to Amber Teething Necklaces. I had never heard of them, so I was interested in learning more.

About Amber Teething Necklaces (from Inspired by Finn)

Among other things, amber is a natural analgesic (pain reliever) and anti-inflammatory. When amber is worn on the skin, the warmth of the skin releases trace amounts of healing oils on the skin. Commonly known as “teething jewelry,” baltic amber has been a natural and traditional European remedy for teething discomfort for hundreds of years. To read more about the many benefits of baltic amber, click here.

Our necklaces are handcrafted and are made of authentic Baltic amber, the most esteemed type of amber in the world. The translucency of amber depends on the amount of air bubbles contained within a piece of amber and their distribution. Some believe the color is related to the type of tree source.

Succinic acid is the most beneficial component of the amber. It is scientifically accepted that the darkest colored amber generally contains less succinic acid than lighter colors. The more cloudy or opaque amber is, the more succinic acid it contains (and usually the more cloudy amber is the nearer to the color white it becomes).

The necklace fastens with a screw clasp, and the necklace cord is knotted in between each bead. These necklaces are made to wear, but not to chew!

WARNING: Necklace contains small parts; Children should be supervised when wearing jewelry, and it should be removed when the child sleeps.

My Review

While we were waiting on the Amber Teething Necklace to arrive, Kaylee’s top two teeth popped through, so we had to wait a little while to try out the necklace. We actually received two necklaces to try out, the Honey Round and the 4 Different Round.  They are actually both quite attractive necklaces—I wouldn’t mind wearing one myself!

4 Different Amber Teething Necklace Honey Amber Teething Necklace

The necklaces are very well made. The strand is knotted in between each bead so even if it breaks, you won’t have beads flying everywhere (although I think it would take a lot to break the necklace). I had never seen a plastic closure like these necklaces have, but to get the health benefits, there can’t be any metal on the necklace. (The closures hold very well and I don’t think there is any way Kaylee could get it open.)

Over the last couple weeks, we started noticing Kaylee was chewing on her fingers a lot again, so I started putting the necklace on her when I remembered (since I have to take it off while she sleeps).

On the days when she wears the necklace, I notice that she doesn’t chew on her fingers nearly as much. However, I do have some trouble with stopping her from chewing on the necklace.

So far, my impression is that amber teething necklaces are a good option for calming teething pain in infants. Amber is supposed to be great for all sorts of pain, and I’d love to try out an amber bracelet at some point myself.
