6 Reasons To Buy An Amber teething Necklace For Your Baby

Baltic amber teething necklaces are necklaces manufactured from Baltic amber. They are meant to be worn around your baby’s neck against your baby’s skin. As the necklace warms against the skin the Baltic amber releases succinic acid which has analgesic properties. This helps to not only soothe your baby’s teething niggles, but also strengthens your baby’s immune system.

6 Reasons to Buy An Amber Teething Necklace For Your Baby

What Age Do Babies Start Teething?

Babies are born with 20 teeth although they are usually under the gums at the time of birth, although in some rare cases some babies are born with one tooth, maybe more, that has already appeared above the gums. At around 3 months old the process of teething usually begins where the teeth start to cause pressure on the gums before come through the gums. The first tooth will usually appear at around 6 months and all your baby’s teeth should be present at around 2 to 3 years old.

There are many ways to soothe your baby’s teething symptoms to help make it easier on your baby, including using an amber teething necklace or anklet.

Here’s why you want to buy an amber teething necklace:

They Look Great

You have to admit that amber teething necklaces look super cool and funky on your baby. Chances are high that this will be your baby’s first fashion accessory that your baby will rock.

Amber Teething Necklaces Are A Natural Remedy

I was not a fan of pumping my baby full of medication or continuously rubbing teething gels or teething powders on my baby’s gums. I preferred to go for completely natural teething remedies wherever possible. Amber teething necklaces are completely natural – chances are high that if you opt for an amber teething necklace you won’t have to give your baby any more medication for teething.

Amber Teething Necklaces Are Effective

Most moms that buy an amber teething necklace for their babies swear by them, me included! I used amber teething necklaces for both my babies and it made such a difference. From my experience using amber teething necklaces on both my babies I found them to be the most effective way of dealing with teething difficulties.

Easy To Use – Just Put It On

Most teething remedies require you to do something. For teething gel and powders you keep having to massage it into your baby’s gums. For medication you need to keep administering it – and we all know how hard it is to get a dose of medication into an unwilling baby! Even with teethers you have to keep them clean and for the frozen ones you will need to keep refreezing them or adding the frozen fruit into it.

An amber teething necklace you just put on your baby and the necklace does the rest. With so many things that moms have going on this is a great benefit to using an amber teething necklace.

Amber Teething Necklaces Are Cost Effective

Yes you might just get a fright looking at the cost of an amber teething necklace but when you consider that it is a once off purchase and you weigh up that cost against the cost of purchasing medication and teething gels or powders for a few years it really makes more sense to buy the amber teething necklace instead.

You can also weigh in the cost of teething toys and teething biltong.

Amber Teething Necklaces Have Other Health Benefits Too

Amber teething necklaces are not just for teething – they boost your baby’s immune system and can assist with many other ailments too. Many adults use amber jewelry too to help them with many things from relieving menstrual pain to relieving arthritis and migraines.

  1. I don’t know much about this but I would really love to win it for my unborn baby since I know how babies get when they teething

    • They are lovely @khuselwan 🙂 Just take note please that this competition is for a R250 voucher for 4 A Kid, it is not for an amber teething necklace. BUT they do sell amber teething necklaces so if you win you can use your voucher to buy one!

      Good luck for the competition!

  2. The simplicity of this necklace is fantastic.
    Unfortunately, I did not use this previously but I have read great reviews on these necklaces and quite a few of my friends have used this for their kids.

    Such a great giveaway @Lynne.

    I am a huge fan of 4 a kid and have purchased items from them before.

    Where do I begin?

    I am one of those Mom’s that can honestly vouch for the Amber teething necklace. Before I had my own child I always thought it was just a cute accessory and maybe something for a baby to chew on when they are teething.
    But I was clearly uneducated on the subject. 🙂
    JD started drooling excessively and chewing on everything since he was about four months. I’ve tried powder, teejel and other remedies but nothing seemed to give him any relief. I couldn’t keep up with washing his bibs.

    Then I read an article or post about the Amber bead necklace and the benefits.

    I immediately bought one from Mopani Pharmacy here in Nelspruit. Within a week or two I started seeing the difference.

    His drooling subsided and he didn’t appear to be in any more pain.

    He is still wearing his necklace and he has just turned two years old, which goes to show that investing in one of these necklaces was definitely cost effective in the long run and they are quite strong if you bought the real deal.

    It is worth paying a bit more for something that works and one just have to make sure you buy the real mcCoy from a reputable supplier, otherwise it won’t work.

  4. Amber necklace it’s great I bought it when my baby was 2 months old i put it on him and by exact 7 months his first tooth pop out just like that , the next following week another pop out too. Am so grateful for Amber necklace it’s the best.

  5. So far the teething process has been a breeze for my now 9 month old son. He started rocking his amber teething necklace from 2 months old and I can truly vouch that it is remarkable how calm he has been, well forget the calm lol, more like his playful self. He has 3 teeth so far. It was definitely worth the cost and I have recommended it to all my friends and family.

    • That is great news.

      I haven’t personally used this with my son when he was an infant. However, my niece was suffering with really bad teething, she had heavy spikes in her fever, diarrhoea and used to be overall a very miserable baby. She started using the Amber necklace a month ago and has showed significant improvement on her mood as well as her fever and fortunately she has not experienced any diaries. The teething gels and powders did not assist with her teething.

      I am a new fan of this necklace and will remember to always share this experience with others that are facing the same difficulties.
      It is just so heart sore to see these little bundles of joy suffering.


  6. This was really something I was wanting to look into and ask my mom friends about. As a brand new mom of a perfect little lockdown baby, I want to give her the best chance at remaining her calm, happy self, and these necklaces seem to be a good natural place to start. Thanks for the info and providing your valuable insight. This new mom needs all the info she can get!

  7. New mom – would love to use the voucher to buy the Amber necklace!
