NO MORE TEARS AND TEETHING PAIN WITH MIRACLE BALTIC AMBER TEETHING NECKLACE

If your baby is in the teething phase, Baltic Amber beads put a stop to teething pain where they can stay smiling. Putting Baltic Amber teething beads on babies may seem like a trendy new concept, but in fact, it has been a common practice since ancient times. As far back as the time of Hippocrates, the great Greek philosopher known as the “Father of Western Medicine”, Baltic Amber has been used as a remedy for many ailments. Even as recently as the 1940s, Baltic Amber teething beads have been a favorite of German mothers and nannies for soothing teething pain and easing fussiness in infants.

HMMM, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, THERE IS SO MUCH ADO ABOUT: THE HAZARDS OF LETTING A BABY WEAR A TEETHING NECKLACE

Indeed, recently there is so much discussion about it. “Teething Necklaces can cause strangulation or choking” - we hear, or “ I would rather have my baby be uncomfortable from teething pain than end up choking or suffocating.”

Let’s be honest.

Leaving your child with anything unattended (toys, pencil, toothbrush) might lead to your baby’s harm or disaster. When you put a teething necklace on your baby’s neck you need to be cautious and...

 

 

That’s not a rocket science but a pure parental responsibility.

 4 GOLDEN RULES TO KEEP YOUR BABY SAFE WHEN USING TEETHING NECKLACE

  1. Always supervise your child when he or she is wearing the necklace (remove the necklace when the infant is unattended, even if it is only for a short period of time).
  2. Take off the necklace when your baby is sleeping (at day naps or night). By the way, are you wearing a necklace when you go to bed? I am not. Necklaces are supposed to be used when your baby is not sleeping.
  3. Do not allow your baby to mouth or chew the necklace. Let your baby try other pain relievers [ex. teething biscuits].
  4. Buy the safest and most solid necklaces.

5 TIPS TO CHOOSE THE BEST BALTIC AMBER TEETHING NECKLACE

TIP #1

  1. Material: Buy original, genuine product with a certificate of authenticity. To be sure you have bought the real amber, try these 2 tests:
  • Insert your Baltic amber teething necklace into a glass of salted water. Genuine Baltic Amber will not sink.

  • Take a piece of cloth and rub the teething necklace against it. If the cloth becomes static it is very probable that you have purchased a genuine Baltic Amber.

Watch how we also test if Baltic amber is real:

TIP #2

Clasp / Closure: Make sure it has the plastic screw clasp. Amber clasps are beautiful, but too fragile and may break and crush unattended. Screw clasp will stop your baby from being able to take the necklace off.

TIP #3

3. Cord and Beads Assembling: Always check the cord of the necklace to make sure it is solid and isn’t fraying. Your necklace should feature and double knotted beads to provide additional safety measures. That makes the whole teething necklace tidy and safe. The necklace will never tear into many small beads.

TIP #4

 4. Length: Mind the necklace length. It is advised to go for a length of 32 centimeters which is approximately the length of 12.6 inches. It is not too long and not too tight to let the baby get accustomed with the necklace, Besides the baby will not be able to bite, play, or even get tangled in it.

TIP #5

5. Beads: Check the shape of beads. Necklace beads cannot have sharp endings. Small, slightly irregular and oval beads will be perfect for a baby to get accustomed to wearing the necklace. Raw, untreated beads are probably most healing, but for a baby will be totally uncomfortable. Choose beads which were polished without using chemicals [pine pieces to polish them in a wooden tumbler].

BONUS TIP: 

TIP #6

Color: It is said that you should choose the bright colors. White [which is the most expensive, and rarest amber], milky, yellow, lemon, egg-yolk. Darker colors are probably less effective but I personally do not believe in it.

WHY IS THE BALTIC AMBER TEETHING NECKLACE THE ONLY TEETHING MIRACLE YOU WILL NEED?

Baltic Amber teething necklaces are the perfect solution for teething babies. Baltic Amber is so popular among other types of amber because of its healing properties.

 

 

The key component affiliated with Baltic Amber healing properties is a succinic acid. Baltic Amber contains 8% of it with the largest quantities in its cortex or outer layer. Did you know that Baltic Amber is the only type of amber with such high concentration? 

HERE IS THE LIST OF BALTIC AMBER HEALING PROPERTIES:

  • Amber is an excellent natural antibiotic and painkiller (teething, headaches, joint stiffness, etc.) that stimulates and boosts the immune system. It provides healing and stimulating tissue revitalization by accelerating the natural healing process. 
  • It has the ability to withdraw the illness, virus or affliction out of the body by absorbing pain and negative energy.
  • Amber helps to relieve stress and anxiety. It clears the mind and releases negative energy. It can reduce or eliminate depression by bringing back the positive state of mind. 
  • It strengthens the memory and intellect and acts as a natural energizer.
  • Amber helps relieve ailments of the throat, ear, respiratory system and lungs, endocrine system, spine, thyroid, spleen, stomach, kidneys, bladder, liver, and gallbladder, strengthens the mucous membranes, and neurological system including the brain.

The list of amber healing properties goes on and on, but we should not forget about its influence on babies.

BALTIC AMBER HEALING PROPERTIES FOR BABIES

Wearing amber on the skin can have soothing and calming effects not only on Adults but also Babies. Baltic Amber has an impressively salutary effect on teething BABIES:

  • It alleviates teething pain.
  • Reduces inflammation (especially in the gums).
  • Provides calming effects without the use of drugs.

    SO HOW EXACTLY DOES SUCCINIC ACID WORK IN BALTIC AMBER TEETHING NECKLACES?

    It is said that the body heats the amber which releases oils containing succinic acid. The succinic acid comes into the bloodstream and helps to relieve baby’s pain. Definitive scientific studies that show how much succinic acid is released - and whether this amount is substantial enough to have an impact - do not exist.

    HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR BALTIC AMBER TEETHING NECKLACE?

    It's important to regularly maintain and clean your Baltic amber necklace to be sure it retains its rich, vibrant color and continues to shine brightly. This is particularly important when it comes to amber teething necklaces for kids, as dirt, dust and other germ-ridden substances can form on the jewelry with everyday use, which isn't something you want your little one putting in their mouth. 


    Follow these steps:

    1. Prepare a bowl or sink of lukewarm water. When doing so, avoid adding any harsh detergents, chemicals or cleaning agents as these can easily damage your amber. 
    2. Dip a microfiber or flannel cloth into the water, and wring it out so that the cloth is damp, but not wet. 
    3. Gently wipe the cloth over the Baltic amber, removing dirt, dust, body oils and other surface material as you do so.

    Note: Be sure to individually clean and dry each amber bead. If left to dry on their own, the excess water can leave your amber beads with a cloudy appearance. Just dip in warm water and rub dry with a soft cloth. Plain water will not harm the amber but washing agents/detergents may so take it off while in the bath or swimming pool. Do not let your amber come in contact with hot water or a hot radiator.

    Your child can bathe with his/her necklace on, too. It’s best to take off before entering a chlorinated pool.
