Lakeon first reviewed with Spark of Amber back in September with her son Brantley, and besides her review, I'd heard more and more praise about teething necklaces. I didn't use them with our three older girls, but it was a thought I had when Mya was old enough to possibly try one. Skip to March 2014 and one day I woke up to a different baby then what I'd previously known because Mya was officially teething.
In the blink of an eye I had a grouchy clingy baby, and with three other children to tend to, I was in a whirl wind off chaos. I immediately emailed Spark of Amber to see if she'd be willing to work together and she said yes and got my Royal Buttery White teething necklace to me quickly.
The "Royal Buttery White" Bean Shaped LUXURY Polished Beads--This unique necklace is truly a deluxe teething necklace--- light amber for high level of Succinic Acid, and bean shaped for added beauty! Rare Buttery White color of Baltic amber!
NOTE: THIS IS THE BEAN-shaped Style of Polished Beads; preferred by some!
Also note, the "white" amber is more of a buttery yellowish color w/ white swirls. This is how white amber naturally occurs and appears.
Mya's worn this necklace every day for three months. While she still hasn't cut teeth, she's had a lot of ups and downs. Her gums will get swollen and then go back down, and slowly you can tell her teeth are getting closer to cutting through. I do believe that this necklace has helped her through the rough times. Compared to how she was before the necklace, I refuse to take it off longer than a bath because I'm nervous to see how she'd do with out it.
Our pediatrician isn't happy with my decision to own a Teething Necklace and I will say that these can be considered choking hazards because they fall back on their necks. I am frequently pulling her necklace forward and this would be my own personal downfall of the product. This however happens to any necklace worn by children or adults so its no fault of the product.
In time, when she's older, I would like to possibly wrap it around the ankle. As of now her ankles are too small to get a snug fit without having too much slack, but I don't intend on taking it off any time soon. I have many friends that swear by their necklaces for their kids and I agree with their opinions that they do indeed make a difference.
"Baltic Amber is a fossilized resin. Europeans greatly prize this beautiful stone for its claimed 100% natural anti-inflammatory, pain relieving, and calming properties. The healing oils of the Baltic Amber are said to relieve teething pain, tame baby’s irritability and relieve inflammation in the throat, ear, and stomach. The calming properties of Baltic Amber may go a long way towards a calmer, happier child. The toddler years are full of turmoil, with lots of growth and change, so the natural analgesic of Baltic Amber is a wonderful gift!"
