Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces ~ Do They Really Work?

As someone who truly believes that there are a lot of homeopathic remedies to help make life a lot easier to live and have proven track records, I was very curious about a trend that is making a comeback from years ago; Amber Teething Necklaces.

I was sent an Amber Teething Necklace from Baltic Wonder. They asked me to review it and let you know what I thought. So I started digging in to the information about these necklaces.

Here is what Baltic Wonder has to say the necklace will do for your child who is teething. This is direct quoting from the company:
The True Benefits Of Amber Teething Necklace
• Noticeable Soothing, calming effects after a few hours of wearing it and much more after a few days of use.
• Natural Teething remedy without secondary effects as normal pharmaceutics drugs used for teething healing.
• Recover full energy, fussiness & avoid fever from teething.
• Babies and toddler looks adorable when wearing it while helping them with their teething problems. • Highest Standard Quality used for making our Baltic Wonder amber teething jewelry.
• Safety knotted (Amber bead) & easy to use.
• Approved By Mothers!
Our Amber Teething Necklace is the perfect alternative medicine for babies & toddlers on the teething process. All this is thanks for the Baltic Amber Natural immune system boost, anti-inflammatory & analgesic capabilities. By the time the baby or toddler start using the necklace you will start noticing the differences on their behavior & mood, thanks to the effectiveness of the succinic acid contained naturally on the amber and without suffering the secondary effects behind synthetic medicine like teething tablets or scrapings left by the teething toys on their mouth.

First let me say that the necklace is very cute. I can see it being worn by many small children, as I wore some pieces of jewelry as a small child. It is made very well and is easy to put on and off the child. The screw clasp is easy to use and is very secure. The beads are unique to each other. No two are alike and they are lovely.

Second, it even comes with a certificate of authenticity concerning the quality of the amber in the necklace.

But there is no third or fourth for me. I have to stop there. Like all homeopathic remedies I had to research it. I read articles and got information and other than a lot of here say, I did not find one bit of concrete proof that amber teething necklaces work, and I really wished I had.  There are tons of mommy blogs and homeopathic sites that tout the wonders of the amber, but there are just as many scientific sites who have tested the effects of amber and have found no specific benefits to alleviate teething pains.

I can honestly say I was disappointed! I wanted it to be something that would work. I remember teething days when my boys were little, and it was no fun for any of us!

Here is the link to one of the best scientific articles I read, written by a pediatrician on the amber teething necklaces. I highly suggest to you to read it: Amber Waves of Woo

For me there are other tried and true ways to help your child get through a difficult stage in growth, but relying on amber to do the trick is not one of them in my opinion. 

As a necklace that would look lovely on and small child, I can say this is a nice product to have, other than that, I can not recommend this to you.

I do want to give you some warnings about using jewelry on small children though. it's something to be very careful with.
 Advised Safety Requirements:
• Always supervise the infant when wearing the necklace.
• Remove the necklace when the infant is unattended, even if it is only for a short period of time.
• Remove the necklace while the infant sleeps at day or night.
• Not allow the infant to mouth or chew the necklace.
