    I wrap it twice around her ankle under her wondersuit or a sock. There's no way she can get to it once her sleeping bag is on anyway.

    I saw a huge improvement with my DS after we got him one.

    He used to be the worst sleeper due to teething, and cry all day. Not too long after wearing the necklace, he started sleeping better, and seemed happier during the day. These days I never know if anything is wrong with him.

    IMO those types of things are just another money-making marketing ploy.... What is the purpose of having a 'teething' baby chew on these things? Babies are teething for the first few years of their lives. Contrary to popular belief teething is not painful to babies although it can cause them to be irritable but I believe the irritability comes from the fact they are going through a growth spurt, which brings on the teething. Babies go through many growth spurts as we all know and major developmental milestones oin the first year particularly yet we always put it down to teething, just because they happen to have teeth come through at the same time.

    There's no evidence to prove these things make any difference at all.... they cost about $25 which is a total rip-off! Maybe your baby will stop crying if chewing on one... but maybe they would have stopped anyway with or without the beads...? I don't know, but I didn't buy into it and I henstly just think that some babies do better than others or cry more than others no matter what you do.

    1) - I can guarantee, if you saw my daughter scream in the middle of the night you wouldn't think it was 'just irritating her'.

    2) - they aren't meant to chew it. The idea is that the resin is absorbed by the skin when it heats up.

    IMO you have no idea what your talking about... I lost my necklace a few months ago and every time one of the boys has a tooth pop through it's that much worse

    My son has one and we don't even know when he's getting teeth, he has no irritability or dribbling or anything really. I don't know if it's the necklace or he's just a 'good' teether (which both my DD were as well), but I'm leaving it on just incase! And it looks super cute!

    You're not meant to chew on it. The amber warms against the skin and releases essential oils to assist with pain and inflammation.

    OP yes my DS cut two teeth at once and we didn't notice a difference in his behaviour. He has been wearing it since about 3 months old. We used to take it off at night and wrap it twice around his ankle but I don't feel the need to do this anymore. We got ours from MummaRocks.

    I got ours from AmbeRocks on FB too.

    I'm not actually convinced they work... I mean, I didn't know about then when DS was a bub but he breezed through teething with no sort of pain relief- we didn't even know when he was teething, they'd just pop through.

    I bought some for DD this year and have used them on and off to see if they make a difference and for DD I don't believe they work. She's just not the best teether I suppoe lol.

    Willing to try one when the new bundle is at the teething stage, $25 isn't exactly bank breaking and hey, even if it is psychological, whatever works!

    I think there are more positive stories than negatives so that must say something ! Obviously the pp that thought they chewed on them has no idea so how could she comment!
