I'm not too familiar with them but have heard good things. I do have a couple questions for you experts though!
Is there only one type of necklace or are there several different ones? If so, which do you prefer?
One website said not to use under 36months (what kid is teething then?!) and another said better used at 3-4months. So is it okay to get Marshall one?
I'm not sure if he is teething but he's not been wanting to eat hardly, his nose is a bit runny and he chews on his hands and nipple of his bottle ALOT! Maybe he's just fighting a cold, but figured if it was safe for him to have one then it wouldn't hurt either way.

Supposedly the amber (or something in it) is a natural pain reliever and anti-inflammatory. Keeping the am dr beads against baby's skin for short periods of time is said to help relieve the discomforts of teething.
You can put it around their neck, but only recommended for short periods because of the pulling factor. The necklaces are usually made to break away easily if pulled, to avoid chances of injury to the LO. Also, the beads are usually knotted in-between (on better ones) to avoid the beads scattering everywhere should the necklace break.
That being said, you can also wrap around baby's ankle and put a sock over it too.
My son wears one and it definitely helps him! The lighter color and raw, unpolished ones are supposed to be best. Get it small enough that it doesn't go over their chin to their mouth. DS never really messed with his, so he just wears it all the time.
I never had one with my other 2 kids and would be hesitant to try one with Sophia due to her possibly pulling the necklace and it breaking off in small parts. Not worth worth the risk for me however some babies may not pull it .
