Amber Teething Necklaces for Babies {and a Giveaway!}

Amber Teething Necklaces | TheMarathonMom.com

I’ve attempted to be a more natural-minded mother since our first child was born, and yet, since he was born back in the 1900s, sometimes I feel like I’m just now learning some natural applications to use with our more recent children.  Take the amber teething necklace for example.

They’ve been around for a long time, but I was taught that if a cold teether, and then maybe some Tylenol didn’t work, then you were out of luck.  Along the way, I discovered Hyland’s teething tablets and have been using those for years with our little ones when I can clearly see they are cutting  a tooth (or even if I just suspect they are.)

Then I began hearing about amber teething necklaces for babies and even children, but thought like many others that the idea seemed a little far-fetched.

But, recently, I received one to try for Lincoln, who by the way, is working on his 6th tooth right now, and boy, oh boy, do we need some teething remedies!  We’ve put the necklace on him several times lately when we’ve gone out and about, and at home a few times, too.  Honestly?  I can’t tell a real distinction if it helps or not.  Sometimes it seems to be just the thing.  And other times, he bawls and squawls no  matter what we do.

I did a LOT of reading before I was comfortable enough to put it on my baby, and ultimately decided that it’s our intended purpose that shows our heart. (Isn’t it always?)  (If you’re concerned, then you know what I’m talking about.)

The science behind the beaded necklace is not so much the action of the baby chewing the beads, as I’d once thought, but the oils released and absorbed into the body which reportedly has a calming, soothing effect on people of all ages.

I’m not entirely convinced they do anything amazing, but I think they definitely can help.  I will say that the times the necklace seems to help the most are when Lincoln will bite on it.  It could be that it’s distracting him by having this handy chew-toy, combined with the gnawing, or maybe even the oils or combination of all three, but if it helps some, then I’ll take it!  One of my sweet friends says these things make a huge difference, and she and all three of her kids wear them routinely!

*Note:  Teething necklaces are not intended for babies to chew on (although I allow Lincoln to if he remembers it’s there).  I personally would never allow a baby to wear one unless they were in my own supervision.*

Thanks to Spark of Amber for sponsoring this post and for sending me a necklace to try.  One lucky reader will receive one, too!  Enter to win using the Rafflecopter box below.

  1. I’m like you, I have no idea if it helps with teething pain or not. But I DO know it works amazing at keeping the slobbering at bay!!
    Also my sister (age 52) has arthritis in multiple joints so wears them on her fingers, wrists and ankles. She SWEARS by them! If she doesn’t wear them one day she really notices a difference.

  2. We have a family reunion coming up which includes an auction so I would like to have it for that!

  3. Rebecca Brown says:

    I have a few friends due soon, I would pass this one on to them. I’ve been considering them for our next little one as well.

  4. Lindsey Wolters says:

    My 3rd baby is 2 months old! We’ll be in the teething arena before we know it…..I didn’t use an amber necklace on my older kiddos, but would LOVE to try it on Elora Grace:)

  5. I have never tried one of these, but I’m about to for Greenlee, my 10 month old.

  6. Kimber Horne says:

    For my friend or cousin who is due the end of summer!

  7. Michelle says:

    Sounds neat….would love to try it out:)

  8. I’d like to try it – I’ve been on the fence and probably wouldn’t spend the $ on it myself because the science behind it seems a little hokey. I’m willing to be a convert!

  9. thomasquiver says:

    Having a hard time getting my comment to post…will try again:) Would love to win the necklace and give as a new baby gift.

  10. Brandi B says:

    I have always been interested in trying them but unsure if I wanted to spend the money on one if I wasn’t sure it would work. So, I’d love to win one and see with baby number 2 (due in a few weeks!).

  11. Katheryn says:

    I haven’t tried these yet, but would love to! I have an almost 6 month old who is just getting started!

  12. I would LOVE to have one for baby girl #2..due in October!

  13. I was given an amber teething necklace for our fourth son. What a huge relief for him! They are NOT intended to be chewed on~the baby’s body heat is what releases is what releases the oils from the amber. The necklace should be short enough that the baby cannot get it into their mouth. After putting it on, in an extremely short time, the necklace will heat to the baby’s body temperature and if short enough, baby soon forgets that there’s anything around his neck. All of my boys were miserable teethers~how I wish I would have known about these with the first one.

  14. I just had a baby, our 5th, it would be for her.

  15. My poor baby is just now starting to get her first teeth.

  16. Kimberly says:

    I actually wear one myself, on my wrist. I have a feeling it’s helped this be the easiest of my 3 pregnancies!

  17. Sweet baby #3 who will be coming in a couple weeks!

  18. I’ve had two who’ve worn teething necklaces, and that necklace is about to be worn out. I have no idea if it’s actually doing anything, but I always see a crankier baby when I take them off. Honestly, I’ll try anything at this point.

  19. Christy says:

    I would try these out with my newest baby. I’ve seen several ladies using them with their teething kiddos and heard great feed back.

  20. I would be trying this on my 8 month old. I have heard good and bad but I think it is worth trying out!

  21. Katelyn says:

    I’d love to try this out with my kiddos
