So disappointingI ordered an amber anklet for my little one - received it almost a month later with the 'baby' amber anklet size so big I can slide it on and off my hand...how is it meant to be for a baby. They must have sent whatever was in stock because the bracelet isn't even labelled. Disappointing.
FraudReally dangerous don't leave your baby alone with it! This don't do anything! For a natural stone to release chemical have to be under really high temperatures (400gradees or more) the human body will never arrive to be that hot! Show details
Surprisingly effectiveI bought an amber necklace from a lovely eBay seller named Anya who has a shop called 'A Life In Harmony.' I thought it was worth a go, I like natural remedies and over the years I've found many to be incredibly effective. I figured if it wasn't helpful it was at least a pretty item and I could make myself a bracelet out of the beads.
My 6 month old has been a grumpy little so-and-so with teething; the bottom two finally popped out after months of teething symptoms and crabbiness, and we got about 3 days of her being pleasant again... then it... Read morestarted all over again. Furious gnawing on things and pushing her upper gums and palate with her thumbs, dribbling -- SO MUCH dribbling, fidgety and inefficient feeds, crappy unsettled naps and night feeding like a bodybuilder. And the CRYING and hollering and constantly waking was just making me angry-tired. I was so wrecked from lack of sleep and constant feeding that I was starting to really become a monster even I wouldn't want to be around. Nurofen and Panadol have never seemed to help, which led me to believe the issue wasn't pain exactly (I think far too much is made of everything being "painful" for babies when in fact it's probably uncomfortable, irritating, or just weird and new). I don't like dosing such a young baby with either of those, they do have quite an impact on the digestive system and liver, and I try to avoid them unless absolutely necessary. I got the necklace in the post and immediately put it on my daughter. That night was WORSE, and I thought, oh great well this obviously isn't going to help! The next day, my husband and I both remarked she wasn't drooling everywhere, which was a dramatic change in itself. That night was a remarkable improvement with sleep! She was way more settled and went back to sleep really easily after her feeds. She even had a little sleep in in the morning instead of getting me up for the day at 5:30. We got up at the far more respectable 7:15. I was still willing to accept it was coincidental at this stage. The next few days to a week after that I saw significant, continual improvements. Just after a week of wearing it now, and I have a very different little baby. The night feeds have spaced out to two longer stretches of sleep again, which I've only briefly experienced with my daughter prior to this, and she doesn't get me up for the day super early any more. I was still thinking it could be coincidental and she might have improved on her own at this age anyway, and my husband and I talked about whether to take it off to test it, but ultimately agreed why risk it. I'm finally getting some sleep (the most since she was a newborn). Well, this morning it was all different. Although she slept well, my husband remarked how drooly she was again, and her night feeds had been BAD, WIDE AWAKE CRANKY BABY nappy changes then feed. My first thought was "oh no, maybe it was a coincidence after all." She was fussy and distracted with her feeds again and cracked it really badly when I put her down for her nap. Like, hollering, un-breathing kind of crying and the morning nap is usually the easiest. I started tidying up a bit to distract myself from my depressing "well today's gone to hell then" train of thought... and found the amber necklace under her change mat!!! Holy frijoles, it does work. I put it back on her and she fell asleep almost immediately. Although I'm sure that last part was purely coincidence, the fact that all the symptoms had come back again since I left it off certainly isn't. I am happily satisfied this is making all the difference now. Hopefully it won't take several days of wearing it again to get back to where we were. I have just ordered a second necklace as backup in case something happens to this one -- and I ordered one for myself as well. I only take it off for baths. Yes yes, I know -- but she's six months old and sleeps more than help of her life so if she didn't wear it when sleeping I'm not sure the effect would have a chance to be as significant. It's on very strong nylon string, each bead is knotted individually and she doesn't seem to play with it anyway. And honestly, if anyone wants to get in my face about it I invite them to come around to our house and look after a teething little monster 24/7 while trying to punch out some paid work as well. Then they can fight me about it. Mama bear don't care.
WORKS!Looks great and definitely works. My child is happier! Happy mother happy child! I paid for free shipping was posted via Express post. Love it! I searched every seller in Australia and the only retailer I could find that actually had lab tested proven genuine baltic amber was Slobber Beads
Does not work at allI have been trying anything to help my little one with his teething pains. The teething bracelet did nothing apart from look nice on him. I researched it a little and was at the stage of just trying anything that would help.
I have now tried the teething powder and having much more success
Amber helped my teething babyI searched every seller in Australia and the only retailer I could find that actually had lab tested proven genuine baltic amber was Teething Baby Australia + Wild bubz. My baby stopped drooling and redness was gone by the days end. We saw more teeth emege but never another issue once we started using this actual genuine amber.
Worked better than expectedMy first child needed only a bit of bonjela from time to time, however this baby, from 3 months had red cheeks, had Niagara Falls down his shirt and loves anything frozen to chew on.
I tried every homeopathic remedy but nothing. Panadol worked but I don't want to give him that often - if ever.
I bought a necklace from Amberbebe and he's back to his normal happy self. Remarkable. Absolutely agree that it works - maybe not for everyone but definitely for my baby.
Amazing!!Got this as a gift during my baby shower. i started using it on my bubs since 3 months of age. i honestly don't feel as though bubs hasn't had issues other than red swallow cheeks thanks to this necklace. i have recommend to all pregnant friends to add this to their baby shower registry list / baby show list.
both my boys have had this since 4 months old and amazing teethers!These are amazing products! my daughter has one and my two boys since 4 months had these, i took them off they were so feral and upset, and even panadol and bonjella did nothing, do yourself a favour and buy them, i bought two for my boys along side panadol and sm-33 gel and they are so good! never take them off and my boys love them, they don't complain or whinge or get grumpy and teeth come through! best thing ever.
Just be careful of choking hazards of course!
Panadol is the answerThey do absolutely nothing except make money for oldmate selling them. Got 3 kids, the wife has used on all of them, it did nothing. Only Panadol works. They are an excellent choking hazard. Wast of money if you ask me. Don't buy them, spend your money on a good carton of beer instead. It's the only type of amber I would recommend
They are AMAZING!my son has worn one since 3 months of age. He is now 16months and has 10 teeth. All pushed through with no problems at all! The ladies from Amberocks are helpful, knowledgable and certify all their products! Highly recommend them and the product. Its a natural product so has you can expect, different results may be experienced but what have you got to lose!
Looks cuteLooks cute on baby, we get loads of compliments. Not convinced it works for teething pain but hey, it can't hurt!
happy customdri bought this when my baby was 10 month and had 8 teeth. Prior to amber, i was having terrible time as my dd was very unsettled because of teething and was behaving like newborn.
i m a much happier mum now although she still complains of teething but not as much as was before and sleeping well now, no pain relief medicine since then.
i do recharge amber in sun every week and keep it on her during sleep.
reliable, natural, soothing
needs recharge, cant wash with water
PerfectReceived a lovely necklace for my bub from fancyamberbaby.com.au that had beads of genuine amber (accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity) along with a few rose quartz beads that made this piece of jewellery much prettier than the stock standard amber necklaces you can buy on the web. Very happy with my purchase!
Different, genuine, well-made
Totally sold on it!I was extremely skeptical when I bought this but my then 6m old son was having a miserable teathing experience and I thought he'd look so cute in one so I bought one.
I was still not 100% convinced but I lost it for a few days and then I really noticed a difference. I had to give him pain relief every day and he was so miserable. I ended up buying another one..(then found the first one ) and noticed a huge difference. I only seem to need to give him pain relief the day before a tooth comes through. Aside from that he's been fine. I'm totally convinced now.
It works, looks so cute!
Questions & Answers
is it possible to just use an amber anklet instead of the necklace and still be effective for teething relief? or do you have to use them around their neck?
just a bit scared about using around the neck when I have heard reports of babies twisting them and nearly strangling themselves?
Thanks for the question. Baltic Amber works by being heated by our skin. We recommend a necklace as it allows more amber to be in contact with the skin allowing a better result. That being s...

Has anyone had the clasp break on their necklace? My husband was doing up our bubs & it broke. The company won't repair as they say it may not be safe & they won't replace as it's outside 30 days. We've only had it two months! I'm really disappointed!
I've never heard of them breaking the amber clasp may have been weakened somehow. The brand I stock has a 1 year guarantee so it would have been fixed or replaced for you, I can totally understand your disappointment.
Thanks for your answer! I thought it must be faulty. I contacted the company again to explain my situation & they have agreed to replace thankfully! :-)
I was told by a person that a child suffocated from this product & they no longer use it for there child anymore is this true?? As I just purchased one for my son a few weeks ago he has it on his neck through the day & on his ankle at night as I was also told they have to wear it all the time for it to work to its potential & not to wear in water??

The amber will work any time it is against the skin. Excessive contact with water will weaken the string which will increase the chance of the string breaking.

Yeah one of the beads broke off today it has 6 months warranty & his still wearing it as I don't know if the original message came from a reliable source hence my question. The
