The other day at a extended family gathering I shuddered to see a relatives child wearing a amber teething necklace. As I did not want to offend or upset her I simply acted like I was unaware how these necklaces work. I did nicely ask if they were designed to break if strangulation was occurring.
So my question is: do these necklaces actually work and have they changed the strangulation possibility. In saying this though if indeed they did break apart if force was placed on it ..it could pose another danger with the child possibly placing one or more of the beads into their mouth and chocking.
Thinking a cool item placed on the gums is the way to go and to give the amber beads the heave-ho.
What are your thoughts .

  • Thanks mom for your comment…it is indeed hard when items appear on the market but I guess one has to research and use ones gut instint.

  • I really wanted to try these as I have heard good things but the questions you raise are all very good questions. I don’t know the answer to any of them but I think now I am in your boat… Maybe just a good old teacher that you chuck in the fridge
