6. Can Teething Necklaces Be Worn During Sleep?

There are two thoughts when answering this question. The first is that babies should not wear anything to bed. So that would include the amber necklace.

Some parents do keep their necklaces on their babies all the times. It is a personal decision and you need to feel comfortable with your decision. Alternatively you can place the necklace on the babies ankle rather than around the neck, for safety reasons.

7. Do Babies Chew on Amber Necklaces?

We are aware that most babies go through phases where they place everything in their mouths.  But, the necklaces are designed to be worn and not sucked or chewed on. As such the necklace should be short enough that your baby can not get any of the beads into his or her mouth. It is recommended that teething necklaces are worn under adult supervision at all times.

8. Are Amber Necklaces a Hazard?

As with all products parents buy for their babies, you need to do your own research and feel comfortable with your baby wearing an Amber necklace or bracelet.

All of our Baby Teething Necklaces include safety features like individually knotted beads, plastic screw clasps and are threaded on cotton threads. So, if the necklace was to break you would only ever loose one bead not all the beads on the necklace.

The clasp should always be the plastic coded clasp, never metal or sterling silver. The plastic screw clasp is designed so that if enough pressure is applied to it the thread will pop and pull apart.

We hope that we have answered any questions or concerns you may have, but if you have any other questions or concerns, please Contact Us at The Baby Spot.


​How to Clean your Baltic Amber Necklace

So, you have just purchased a beautiful Baltic Amber Necklace. Maybe you bought it to help your baby with teething, or maybe you bought it for the many health benefits for adults.

Either way, it can be important to understand how your amber necklace is made in order to learn the best ways to take care of and clean your Baltic Amber Necklace.

The amber that is used to make your beautiful necklace is not a stone, it’s a natural resin. The amber beads are designed to harness the warmth of you or your baby’s body.

This warmth will release the healing oils that are naturally held within the amber and absorbed into the individual’s skin.

How to Clean Your Baltic Amber

Find a soft cloth or an extra soft toothbrush to clean the amber beads, whatever you decide to use needs to be soft so you do not cause any scratches.Cleaning Amber Necklaces

Next you need a cleaning solution, something soft and non-abrasive like soapy warm water. Another cleaning solution suggested is a liquid soap that is considered soft. Maybe a natural Goats Milk Baby Soap would be a good option.

After you have placed the soap into the water,  a soap that does not cause suds. You will gently dunk either your cloth or the necklace into the water. For some controlling the little bit of water on the cloth is easier.

However, for others dunking several beads is easier, whatever works best for you.

Washing the necklace while giving your baby a bath is a great trick to save time.

Please note:-  It is OK to get the string that holds the amber beads wet.

You will need another clean soft cloth, such as an old flannel face washer for drying your amber pieces. Each amber bead will need to be wiped down and dried individually. Letting the amber dry on its own can cause cloudiness in the stones.

After all pieces of your necklace have dried it is time to remove the grease from them. You could use a natural oil such as olive or almond. You simply place the oils into your hand and rub each of the stones.

By using a natural oil, it will help to keep the luster of the amber.

Things to Remember When Cleaning Your Amber

  • Always apply your perfume or hairspray before you wear your Amber.
  • Use a mild soapy lukewarm solution to clean amber beads.
  • Never place your jewellery in the direct sunlight.
  • Watch the temperature of your necklace, you never want it to get to hot or too cold.
  • Be sure not to wash the dishes or do the laundry while wearing your amber as those cleansers can be too harsh for the stones.
  • Don’t let the amber touch any metals or other jewellery, as this might chip the Baltic amber stones.

It is important to care for your Amber so you can enjoy all the many benefits for years to come.

What are Baby Amber Teething Necklaces?

baby with polished amber teething necklaceEvery mum I know dreads when their baby starts to grow teeth… We panic and brace ourselves for sleepless nights.

We don’t know how excruciating it is for our little angels, but we do know it hurts and can cause bubs to feel very unwell. As mums, our primary concern is the health and well-being of our babies and we just want to do what is best for them.

I’ve tried many remedies like rubbing my fingers on my baby’s gums, using a clean wet cold face washer, to pain relief pills.

When my baby is teething, I’d have to tend to his every need just to ease the pain, this becomes very time consuming and tiring. As every Mum knows, time is precious and we would rather be enjoying our babies not seeing them in pain every minute of the day.

So, I asked myself: “Is there a better way to treat my Babies Teething Pain?”

My neighbor suggested that I try a Baby Baltic Amber Teething Necklace. So at my wits end, I purchased a necklace and started using it, my two-year-old son has gotten through teething without a mumble.

What are Amber Teething Necklaces Made From?

Amber Teething Necklaces are not new. In fact, it is one of the oldest healing remedies for teething babies. Baltic amber teething necklaces have been a traditional European remedy known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties.

Its healing properties make it an ideal and natural product for babies and children.

How do Amber Necklaces Work?

Between late 1930’s and 1940’s, European Biochemists discovered that succinic acid is an amino acid that is created naturally in every cell of the body. This acid is capable of aerobic respiration.

This is also how carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are metabolized into energy.

Part of what’s great about Amber is that the resin has a chemical property which, when formed, acts as a natural embalming agent with both drying an anti-microbial properties. In fact, Ancient Egyptians used pine resin as an embalming agent, and during the Civil War, doctors would use sap tree resin on a wound as an alternative disinfectant and saved lives that way.

If worn close to the skin, the body heat helps release a small amount of oil from the amber which is then absorbed into the blood steam.

Baltic amber can reduce acidity in the human body in a more natural way. If your baby wears a Teething Necklace everyday, it reduces common symptoms relating to teething like swollen gums, the redness of the cheeks, fevers, irritability plus many more health benefits.

Who can Wear a Baltic Amber Necklace?

thebabyspotsalfieIt is suggested that Babies aged between 3 months to 2 years of age can wear a teething necklace. If you get your baby or infant to wear a Baltic Amber Necklace as early as you can, they are more likely to feel like it’s a part of them.

My one big regret, is that my baby was two years of age when I found out about Amber Teething necklaces. When I put it on him for the first time, he just wasn’t used to it.

So he would take it off most of the time, it took him a few months before he got used to wearing the necklace. So, as I previously mentioned if I had got my son to wear a necklace when he was around three months, the process would have been easier.

I absolutely love my Amber Teething Necklace. Not only for the teething benefits, but, it looks great. The healing remedies of amber also saves me from having to tend my babies needs when he was teething.

I also noticed that my little boy is calmer and happier than when he didn’t have this amber teething necklace on. So this makes for a much happier Mum.
