    I dont think you can put one on a child without experiencing teething first.
    Ds had his two bottom teeth come in at once.
    complete nightmare! up all night, nurofen, sm33....
    once they cut in, we bought a necklace...
    so far his top two are coming in and he is just very drooly and occasionaly needs bonjela.

    thumbs up for us

    Lauzy - that's a little concerning! Have you gotten on to anybody at the company about it?
    No reply yet. Not sure where to report them either.

    Im not someone who usually believes in things like this but I swear by it. DS was an awesome teether! No red cheeks, no dribble, no rashes or temps. Though if we took the necklace off for any reason the red cheeks and dribble appeared within an hour. Next bub will have one for sure! DS is now 28 months and has all of his teeth though I still haven't taken his necklace off, its too cute on him!

    My experience with two babies, one a bad teether, red cheeks, drooling, rashy bum, panadol and bonjela and no necklace. The other with the necklace I haven't noticed any teething symptoms at all (she's 2 now).

    We thought they would be a load of hooey. Ds cut his first teeth at 2.5 months old and struggled massively. We went through so much Panadol and nurofen he got blood blisters and everything. Once we put the necklace on 6 months old- we barely touched pain relief- only the nights the tooth was actually cutting at times. He slept better ( crap sleeper anyway- but better) he was happy and cheerful no dribble or red cheecks. The times we forgot to put it on his days were shocking. And it would improve within 24 hours of necklace being back on. He wore it around his neck during the day and his ankle (under a sock) at night.

    Coukdnt believe how well it worked.

    Trust in science, and if you can't do that then trust in common sense. Myth

    (ETA Make that "choking hazard in myth's clothing".)

    Science says its total cr@p. The way it is supposed to work is physically impossible, and even if it did miraculously work that was, there is no evidence the substance in amber (succinic acid) would relieve pain.
    Pretty, though.
