    I believe they are individually tied so that if it breaks only one bead falls off.

    Yep they are individually knotted so if it does break only one bead will come off. My DS3 has had his on for close to 18mnths and it's never broken and still looks as strong as ever.

    I thought they were unsafe but when looking into them found that yes they are indivdually tied and very small so if they were to be eaten a child would not be able to choke

    I'd be more afraid of them getting caught on something and hanging the child, like while climbing out of a cot... My DD is 3 and I still never let her sleep with necklaces or anything she could get caught around her neck.

    Individually tied on some with double knots before each bead still pose other risks but safer than most in terms of choking hazard

    DS has worn his since 4 months. I too was nervous about sleeping, a friend suggested wrapping it around his ankle instead. I never did though, but good idea!

    DS's is individually tied at each bead AND has a pull apart clasp that twists on, but if too much pressure is put on it.. like being pulled, it pulls apart. Because I too, was worried about him strangling himself.

    I think with most baby things, you need to be aware and careful though, but never had a problem.

    I love them and will be one of the first things I buy for the new baby!

    The catch is designed to break when enough force is applied, which isn't much at all. This also worried me but the catch on good quality ones has a soft plastic, threaded tube to do it up, this breaks very easily...I know because I accidently broke DS's.

    Unfortunately the concept of the amber necklace didn't work for DS, but it looks nice

    i never thought of that bada. isn't it still a bad thing if bubs did swallow a bead? (getting stuck somewhere in the tummy)

    The chances of bub swallowing a bead are really small. They don't chew on them or anything. The amber releases a substance into the skin when warmed against the body. In the very unlikely instance that they swallow a bead, they're very small and not a real choking risk
