    There are plenty of mums ( including me) who swear by them, I don't care what scientific research there is on Dr Google, all I can say is it works for us and I recommend them to any new mum , much better than panadol and gels if you don't need to use them!

    “You have to heat amber to over 200degC in order to be able to get any volatiles out of it, so I find that quite unlikely.”

    To each their own I guess- babies don't sleep with them on though, do they? I don't think that would be safe. Ta for the info!
    Don't use one then.

    I won't- I wouldn't tie a string on a baby's neck, I guess this is no different IMO- but as I said, to each their own. I was just curious as to how they are supposed to work.

    We have a raw amber necklace on our boy, and a honey amber bracelet. He sleeps with them on, has done since he was born - we've never had any issues. They definitely make a big difference to him - he settles better with them on and drools less. I know some people say it's rubbish and can't/doesn't work, but to each their own . Scientific evidence or not, for us they do work - and I'm a scientist

    I was exactly like you very skeptical. How does it work, is it safe around the neck etc. Trust me if you haven't tried it don't knock it as I am eating my words now. I know its not for everyone but I am so glad I tried it. As for safety it has little knots between each bead so if broken the bead does not come loose. You need to make sure they are made for little bubbas thats all.

    I have a question ladies who have the necklaces...
    Do you think there is a difference in the colours & how well it works?
    Like is a multicolour better or worse then a plain honey or champagne?
    Thanks

    Yes, there is.
    I think the darker, the better.
