"When a baby is wearing amber teething necklace on the skin, the skin's warmth releases healing oils from the amber (a resin) which are absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream. Children wearing amber is a very old traditional custom in Europe and the Far East. Amber is known to reduce inflammation of the throat, ear and stomach and to fight inflammation, infections and respiratory disease. Traditional beaded amber necklaces are a less intrusive remedy for the pain and side effects of teething, such as lack of appetite, upset tummies, ear ache, fevers and colds. These necklaces are long known for the healing properties of amber which include calmative, analgesic, antispasmodic, expectorant, and febrifuge (anti-fever) functions"
I wouldn't consider myself a hippy when it comes to parenting and I am very pro modern medication but I am willing to try anything natural! We cloth diaper, we use essential oils, and I truly believe in the power of the BA necklace. We have a family friend who grew up in Poland and she said parents grind up Amber stones from the Baltic Sea and put in teething infant's bottles because of their healing capabilities. Let's face it, teething sucks. Your poor baby is in so much pain and their mouths become a water fountain of drool and sleeping, eating, sucking, existing just plain hurts. Teething is rough on babes and rough on mamas so I try to make teething as easy as possible on my little ones. Another question I get asked a lot is, "does the necklace work?" and here is my answer. I don't know teething without it and I am NOT willing to try it out. What got me so interested in the BA necklaces is seeing first hand out it cleared up a nasty drool/teething rash on my 5 month old niece within 2 hours of putting on the necklace. Yes Ford is still cranky and drooly while teething but when I read on mommy boards about kids his age who won't sleep a wink while getting teeth, I have to give it to the necklace. We've never had an issue of night waking while teething and Ford is a pretty good teether in comparison to what I see others go through. I truly believe the necklace provides relief for his shifting and moving mouth.
I've heard some people bash the necklaces because of safety reasons but there is no way I would risk my son's life over a necklace if that was the case. They are knotted between each bead and designed not to break or cause choking. Some parents take them off at night (but that's when I feel like babies need the most pain relief) and some choose for baby to wear them around the ankle.
