    Can someone tell me do you take it off at night. She screamed the house down when I took it off her last night so had to put it back on.

    We don't take ours off, only for baths or swimming, my 13 month old DS does not know he is wearing it so he doesnt touch it at all!

    Ok thank you because wow when it's on she is a new baby it's unbelievable took it off for an hour and she screamed so bad with her whole hands in her mouth. It's proof they must work. I haven't needed panadol at all.

    I ordered it online. It comes with a certificate and all. I'll grab the details and pm you if you like? Oh and I ordered the white ones but they look more honey to me.

    Can anyone explain how these are supposed to work? I'm confused, I thought at first they were for the bub to chew on, but I see some people use them as anklets, in which case chewing might be a problem?
    Honestly curious though- how do they work? Can anyone point me in the right direction? My skeptical mind wonders how something worn outside the body can fix pain inside the mouth??

    The amber is supposed to release oils that are absorbed by the skin which have an analgesic effect.

    OP I've never had to give panadol for teething. I've never taken the necklace off, it stays on for nights, swimming, bathing etc and she's been wearing it for a good six months now (she's 13 months).

    ^^we are the same, DS has 11 teeth ( including 3 big molars) never had panadol or teething gels, Amber has loads of natural healing power, it's extremely popular in europe and has been used for centuries

    Oh ok... I did some googling in the interim. A lot of people swear by them but a lot also say there is no research to support their use? Found this quote-
    Chemistry professor at Otago University, Alan Blackman says that is nonsense.
    “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!
