Sleepless nights, fever, rashes, diarrhea and screaming fits are just some of the signs that your baby is teething. Homeopathic teething tablets containing chamomile and teething gel massaged into the gums are effective remedies but they have to be applied many times over, often not without a struggle.
What would you say if I told you there’s an easier way? That there’s a product that not only looks great but has a lasting calming effect on teething babies and toddlers? A one-off purchase that will last your baby until the final tooth pops through?
If this sounds too good to be true, read on and discover the amazing secret of amber. To let babies and small children wear amber is a very old traditional custom in various parts of Europe and the Far East. Amber is known to reduce inflammation of the throat, ear and stomach. Traditionally used to fight inflammation, infections and respiratory disease, it is known to be healing, soothing and harmonizing.
Unlike teething gels, powders or pain relief syrups, the traditional beaded amber necklaces imported from the Baltic region are a less intrusive remedy for the pain and side effects of teething, such as lack of appetite, upset tummies, ear ache, fevers and colds. A natural analgesic, amber will help calm a baby without resorting to drugs. When amber is worn on the skin, the skin’s warmth releases healing oils from the amber which are then absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream. Amber’s anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are also recognized by allopathic medicine. In Austria, Switzerland and Germany, you will find amber teething necklaces sold in local pharmacies. Pharmacists and doctors have long known about the healing properties of amber which include calmative, analgesic, antispasmodic, expectorant, and febrifuge (anti-fever) functions.
Amber is not actually a stone and therefore not cold to the touch, as well as very comfortable and light to wear. The transparent pieces have a warm rich glow.

Amber necklaces are great for babies and toddlers to soothe the pain and discomfort of teething. Specifically designed with the safety of babies and toddlers in mind, they usually have amber clasps (non-allergic), and are knotted before and after every individual amber bead so that even in the unlikely event of the string being torn, not a single bead is lost and there is no risk of choking. Baby amber teething necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing. Amber exhibits pain relieving qualities when worn on the skin.
The highest quality necklaces are made from genuine Baltic amber. Beware of cheap imitations. An authentic high quality baby amber necklace will cost around US$30.00. A very worthwhile investment! These necklaces also make wonderful luxury baby gifts for special events such as christenings or birthdays.
