Does An Amber Teething Necklace Really Work?
AND WHY AN AMBER TEETHING NECKLACE?
Amber is Europe's oldest gemstone, used for mental and physical wellbeing. Amber is renowned for its healing and calming influence. The ancient Greeks discovered the electrostatic effect of amber - by friction amber is attracted to other substances - that's why the ancient Greeks called it 'electron'. The Egyptians used it in powdered form for internal diseases. In the Middle Ages amber was one of the most important drugs and until today amber is found in homeopatic remedies.
For babies amber is used to soothe teething pain, an upset stomach, a sore throat and it also serves as an anti-spasmodic. Additionally, for adults, amber is used as a natural home remedy for rheumatism, arthritis, tension in the back and in skin diseases.
Amber necklaces for babies have been around for many centuries. They are also said to strengthen the immune system. However, whether they really work and help so far could not be medically proven. But many parents absolutely swear on amber teething necklaces and believe they work very well as a teething help!
Many people also give amber teething necklaces as their standard baby gift because they are convinced of giving something helpful for baby and its parents. So, in principle, it is up to you whether to believe in the healing powers of amber or not. On the other hand, amber necklaces don't do any harm, so it's well worth a try.
Crystal healing specialists advise to wear an amber teething necklace as early as possible. They also advise the mother to carry the necklace for some time so it can absorb the motherly positive energy that is later transferred to baby. But every baby should get its own amber necklace since the vibrations are
transmitted to the person wearing the necklace. So except for the mother, the amber necklace should not have been worn by any other person before.
Teething necklaces are safe, if a few tips and rules are observed!
When wearing the teething necklace baby should always be closely supervised.
A good amber necklace is individually knotted so just one bead comes off in case the necklace should break.
To avoid strangulation the necklace's cord must split if you pull too heavy on it. There are also necklaces with a special safety feature: a magnetic clasp fastener opens at once upon heavy pulling.
The teething necklace should be worn right on the skin and under baby's clothes. This also protects from pulling and tearing by other children. Some specialists say, a well-fitting amber necklace may also be worn at night under the pajamas. Otherx claim, you should take it off before baby goes to sleep. So if you are in doubt, take the necklace off at night and during baby's naps.
The necklace's beads must be round without pointed or sharp edges.
By the way, who says that an amber necklace must be worn around the neck? Double-wrapped, it can also be worn as a bracelet or anklet. Alternatively buy the appropriate size for baby's arm or foot right away, there are special teething bracelets and anklets available, too!
Once a week, rinse baby's teething necklace for about 5 minutes under running water and allow to air dry.
