Necklaces are available in 12.5 inches for baby, bub, infant, toddler, and some big kids. (Screw clasp). Bracelets are approximately 5.5 inches.
For babies: Reduction of teething symptoms: fever, fussiness, red cheeks, drooling.
What's great about this teething necklace is it is 100% Baltic Amber - that's the bead for teething, inflammation, fever, common colds, and immune boosting. There are no added semi-precious beads in this necklace so this will give your baby 100% relief.
What size is best? We suggest newborn through 11 months can fit the 11 inch well. In fact, many children up to 3 years can still fit this necklace, but for the average baby, 11 months is maximum. If you can fit 3 fingers in, it's a great fit. From 5 months to 5 years, we suggest 12.5 inches. The necklaces are stretchable as well if you need an extra inch. Without pulling at the clasps, gently pull bead to bead until you've gone around the entire necklace one time. Try out the new size and repeat if a longer length is desired.
How to clean them: Just use hot water and cloth to wipe the beads if needed. Can they get wet? Yes, they can but we prefer to keep them chemical free as the chemicals may interfere with the effectiveness. This often means removing during bath and pool.
Is there actual food in the necklace? No, the colors of the necklace are shades: Milk is a whitish yellow, Lemon is a lemony yellow. Honey is a golden yellowish brown. It can vary light to dark based on when the amber was mined. Cognac is a darker brown and varies from light to dark based on when the amber was mined. Cherry is typically black in color. Occasionally you may notice some red or ruby tints but cherry is mostly black. Multi or Rainbow are a mix of three or four colors above typically. We also have semi-precious rainbow and that mixes the gemstones in our necklaces.
If I purchase two, will they be identical? Probably not! The amber is all natural from the earth. Each bit of tree resin is hardened into a bead to be placed onto the necklace. The beads are sorted by size and strung. But color, shape, texture can vary from necklace to necklace. It is more rare to find two that are exact.
Necklaces are not for baby to chew on, the Amber & other stones releases microscopic amounts of oil, as it warms with the body's natural temperature, that is absorbed into the skin and bloodstream. Baltic Amber contains succinic acid (anti-fever, anti-inflammatory), the compound that gives Baltic Amber teething necklaces the therapeutic quality. **FOR CHILDREN UNDER 3*** Teething Necklaces should be removed during naps and when unsupervised.
Baltic amber is an organic substance, a “fossil resin” produced by pine trees which grew in Northern Europe. By having the baby wear the necklace everyday it helps reduce the common symptoms related to teething such as: red cheeks, fever, swollen gums, and diaper rash.
The most often asked question - WHICH IS BEST for my child? Raw? Polished? Color
The answer is simple. For teething - they all work GREAT. There is absolutely no difference in color or polish when it comes to teething. 99% of babies will see results in 30 minutes. The few who do not may take up to 4 days. If you still are not seeing results, contact us, we can swap for amber from a different batch. It is rare, but some babies DO respond to one color vs another (very rare) and in even more rare occurrences, roughly .005% of babies will not respond to amber at all. We are happy to work with you to exchange or refund if that is your experience. Just buy the necklace you love and it should work well for your baby & toddler!
We have had some ask if they should place them in the sun to recharge them. However, we have not personally tested this. In fact, we did a little research and found that gemstones can actually fade in the sun!! The jewelry we wear has never needed to be placed in the sun to work.
