A genuine Baltic Amber teething necklace is a natural form of pain relief for teething babies. Amber itself is a fossilized tree resin and contains “succinic acid” which, by body warmth, is released into the skin when worn. Succinic acid provides anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. For teething baby, this means pain relief and reduction of the inflammation of the gums that accompanies teething.
Can my baby chew on the necklace?
No. These necklaces are not to be chewed on. Choose the appropriate sized necklace for your baby so the baby cannot get the necklace into his/her mouth. Optimal therapeutic value occurs when the amber is worn close to the site of discomfort.
How do I select the right size?
The necklaces come in two sizes: small (11-11.5 inches) and medium (12-12.5 inches). It should not be so loose that the child can lift it up into his/her mouth, but it should not be so tight that it will be uncomfortable. Try the necklace on the baby to gauge the proper fit.
