Hi, just after people’s experiences with amber teething necklaces. Do they really work, or just a “fad” I’ve never used them by my second drools constantly so considering trying them. TIA

  • I don’t know whether they work or not, but they can be very dangerous if baby swallows the beads or gets the necklace wrapped around their neck.

  • I have found my daughters to be fabulous!

  • There is no evidence that they work and have been noted as a choking hazard. On the chance that there is something to them (many say they work) it must be understood that there are other methods proven to help that cost a lot less.

  • I read a govt position statement that said they were unsafe as they were a choking hazard so for this reason did not use them.

  • I have no doubt that amber teething necklaces are a hoax. It’s too risky to put small beads around your baby’s neck! If something happened and the beads got loose you would never forgive yourself!

  • I think they are a hoax.

  • I found that they worked!!

  • I’ve been wondering this my self. Thanks for asking.

  • I am not sure if they work but they look super cute! hehe

  • It is a known choking hazard. Better off using a bib to catch any drips as they outgrow in a couple of months.

  • We had this discussion at playgroup yesterday, the general consensus (even from mums that had bought them) was that they are more cute than effective.

  • If you bought one how did it go?

  • what did you decide on?

  • I think they are now not recommending them due to choking hazard

  • Did you end up using one?
