Amber childrens jewlery is aimed at teething babies and young children. Wearing these types of bracelets, anklets and necklaces are considered to be an effective and natural remedy for symptoms associated with teething pain.
The idea that Amber necklaces are useful for teething children is not new. Even before World War II children in Germany were given Amber beads to wear. It was thought that children wearing these beads can grow stronger and teethe with significantly less pain. Today necklaces made of Baltic Amber beads are still very popular for this purpose and it can be said their popularity is even growing.
One of the most commonly mentioned explanations why Amber is advantageous for teething children is because it contains high amounts of Succinic Acid. The warmth from the skin causes this healing oil to be released from Amber into the bloodstream, which is what provides babies with pain relief and calming effect. Based on toxicity studies this acid is completely safe and even high amounts of it will not cause any dangers to health. Before considering trying Amber jewelry (necklace, anklet or bracelet) for teething purposes it is important to keep in mind that there is no scientific evidence that would support or fully reject its effectiveness. However, since many parents leave very positive reviews about these necklaces and bracelets it is definitely worthwhile to give them a try.
When choosing teething necklace for a baby it is important to make sure that it is made of Baltic Amber beads. This is essential tip to follow because other types of Amber doesn't contain that much Succinic Acid. Based on research Baltic Amber might contain between 3% to 8 % of this acid by its weight, which makes it one of the best natural sources of Succinic Acid. Since this acid is what provides teething babies with pain relief it is worthwhile to make sure that necklace has as much of it as possible.
Most makers of Amber baby necklaces do what they can to ensure maximum safety for children who wears them. Despite that, it is important to supervise children at all times when they wear them to avoid any accidents. Due to this, it is best to remove Amber jewelry from a baby when she/he is sleeping. All quality teething necklaces on the market today have their Amber beads knotted from both sides. This guarantees that in case a necklace is broken only one bead will be able to fall off and your child will not be surrounded by tons of beads. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to mention that these necklaces are not very easily broken so a child would need to have a lot of force to do that. So when buying Amber teething jewelry make sure that it has beads knotted from both sides.
