Does anyone have one for their LO? Notice a difference? Any BTDT mommies have prior experience with how these necklaces work?

I ordered one for Lucy, she gets really fussy and cries in pain and I'm pretty sure its her teeth coming in. I'm hoping it works as well as some of the reviews claim.

I ordered one from Nicksdiapers.com a while back for Marshall. He's not REALLY teething, like I can't see any sign of a tooth coming in but he's constantly feeling warm and chewing on his hands.

I have noticed when he's wearing it he doesn't feel warm and isn't chewing on his hands as much.

They work by the amber getting warm and releasing the acid stsrntnscnood.

Whoa fussy baby all of a sudden. Will finish this in a bit

Ok sorry about that. When they are warmed by the body heat they slowly release the acid inside which starts with an s. it's supposed to be a naturally occurring analgesic. I personally know 2 mamas that swear by them. Mine arrived today and is sitting on my front porch probably!

Can the babies pull off or bit off the beads? Choking hazard? That is my only concern.

Of course anything is possible but the well made ones are constructed with each bead having a knot between it and the next. This would essentially prevent all the beads from scattering if baby pulls it off/rips it. They are supposedly also made to break easily enough if yanked (for safety). Also the beads are small enough that they shouldn't pose a choking hazard. Again, these are all in the well made ones. They almost all say that they arent to be used by children under 3. But teething is obviously done by then so its more of a common sense thing -- don't let them wear it unsupervised or at night etc.

Max has been wearing one for a week. I don't know that I notice much difference because hes just a happy baby. He doesn't seem to notice it at all.

It does make me giggle though because it reminds me of those shell necklaces the frat boy type used to wear all tight against their necks.

Sophia is teething I think but not to the point where she is in pain yet. She drools like crazy, everything goes in her mouth and is constantly biting on her pacifier. I think I may just hold off until she gets uncomfortable and they maybe consider this. With my other 2 kids I didn't get one (don't even recall if they were available) and their teething wasn't that bad so we will see.

I use one on my son (he's almost done teething, just one more 2 year molar, woot!) and I definitely noticed a difference. It doesn't take away ALL the pain, but it absolutely did make a difference for him, and his teeth seemed to bother him a lot. I plan to use one on Taylor when I think she starts teething.

A few tips I've gathered... the light colored 'raw'(not the shineyed up ones) ones are best. You can test to be sure it's real Amber, there are fake ones out there, but if you buy from a reputable company (Hazelaid, Inspired by Finn, etc) you should be fine. And you want it short enough that they can't pull it over their chin and put it in thier mouths.

Lucy's should be delivered today. I'll report back if I notice any difference in her temperament

Ditto on the reputable companies. Mine is the original art of cure. The raw light colored ones aren't as "pretty" but are supposedly more effective. That's what we have. I will report back (or bother me later since I will probably forget) as to if we notice any difference.

I would love to hear how you ladies like the necklaces. Vivi has been super fussy lately and like pushing down on her bottom gums with her hands, drooling on everything, nawing on anything she can get her hands on. I'm now considering a necklace based on these posts but would love to get all your thoughts first.

Hm, that's interesting. I did not know that. It explains a conversation I had with a woman selling me a pair of amber earrings a few years ago who was telling me about its protective properties, and how it makes you more open in new/stressful situations. I just thought they were pretty.

Is there supposed to be a benefit to wearing the necklace when they're older and feeling ill/running a temperature?

You know, I don't know but I've been thinking about that lately. My dad has some age-related aches and pains often and I was telling my mom about Bax's necklace and suggested maybe we get one for my dad?! I might even try one myself!

I've also read that they can help adult aliments. I think there is a chart you can follow to see what color would be right for you and order in necklace, bracelet, or anklet, depending on what your issue is.

I'm so desperate that I rush ordered one to where we are on vacation. Vivi has been a mess and I'm really at my wits end. I don't know if it's the formula switch to help with the spit up or teething or just a wonder week. I want to help her, but I feel like I don't know how to. Really hoping that this amber teething necklace does something to relieve whatever discomfort she is feeling.
