Baltic amber teething necklaces have been a traditional for centuries as a baby teething remedy. Baltic amber’s natural analgesic, anti-inflammatory, pain relieving properties can help to soothe and calm a teething baby naturally. The amber may also help reduce teething related symptoms such as swollen gums, runny nose, diaper rash, fever, and redness in the cheeks. Baltic amber is great for parents wanting to care for their baby naturally.
The beads are not for chewing they are to be worn against the skin, the body’s warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber, which contain succinic acid. Succinic acid is a natural anti-inflammatory & analgesic that helps relieves pain, strengthens the immune system, and restores energy and focus. Wearing Baltic Amber closest to the painful area provides the best relief.
It comes in both “twist” clasp for older children and easy to” pop” for quick release for babies.
Manufacturer info: For children the necklace should fit loose enough around the neck so you can insert two or three fingers but you should not be able to get the necklace above the child’s chin so the necklace cannot be put in his/her mouth. The amber beads MUST NOT BE PUT INTO THE MOUTH OR CHEWED. Each bead on The Amber Monkey’s necklaces is individually knotted so if the necklace does break, the beads stay intact. Customers have the option of either a screw clasp or a pull-apart clasp. Both are designed to strip and pull open at a minimum 15 lbs pull force for ten seconds to prevent choking if one tugs or pulls on it. As with all jewelry, Baltic amber should only be worn and used under direct supervision of an adult and should to be removed when a child is sleeping.
