I 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...started 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).
Purchased in January 2020 for $20.00.
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 all
I 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 baby
I 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 expected
My 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.
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.
- Verified purchase
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 answer
They 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!
i 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
Received 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!
Glad I went natural
I purchased a teething necklace when my baby started showing signs of teething. Within days of putting it on her she was so much happier, except for Thursdays, when I would always forget to put it back on after swimming! Once I realized, it was on all the time and I never forgot!
Bought it from Amberocks, have bought several for friends. Excellence customer service and I rand and asked for a discount when purchasing a second time and was given a discount code!
Natural, inexpensive when you work out how much medication or bonjela you would use.looks really cute
Lots of fakes out there
Purchased 2 necklaces
I have purchased 2 necklaces, first from Ambiance Amber, and as previous person noted. Poor service and a really low grade item. So i did some more research and found Mumma Rocks. High Quality amber, yes more expensive, but you gets what you pay for! it came quickly and seems to be working great.
Mumma Rocks Amber was professionally packaged and came quickly. Beads were beautifully rounded.
That i went cheap to Ambiance Amber first….
I bought a necklace for both my bubs (now 18 months & 4 months) and NEVER had a problem with teething! My eldest never seemed bothered by the necklace and during sleep time, I wrapped it around her ankle. I bought mine from charlottweb.com.au and they were so helpful! I love them so much, I ended up buying one for myself! Definately worth it!
Great value, love the colours, no problems at all with teething
Nothing more than a placebo!
I brought one of these to give it a try and found it did nothing!. Feeling ripped off I delved deeper to find any scientific research supporting the claims made by the manufacturer. I looked for academic, peer reviewed articles; none. I looked for anything that had some scientific credibility; nothing. I concluded it is nothing more than a placebo and you are wasting your money if you are sucked in by the slick marketing!
Useless. It is nothing more than an glamourised teething aid.
Awesome....have worked wonders with both of my kids!
Pretty much I bought a necklace for my first daughter because I thought it would be cute. But then I found that whenever she had it on her teething didn't bother her one bit. So she started to wear it all the time and we went through teething without any troubles. She's now almost 4 and still wears hers - has all her teeth now, but still wears it because it's gorgeous. I also have a 1 year old, and I bought her another necklace from AmberBub [url removed] which has great prices, fast postage and they give you a Certificate of Authenticity and W...arranty. She also now wears hers all the time and is going through teething easily and it seems without any pain!! Cute, helps with pain relief, individually knotted, Certificate of Authenticity, Warranty, Fast Postage
It Really Works
i was sceptical at first but really noticed the teething symptoms return when i left the necklace off for a couple of days. The rosy cheeks, dribbling and wingeing from pain returned. i have not had to administer pain relief. i bought mine from flowerchild and happy with product and service.
good customer service and quality product
a little more expensive than others
Love it!!! I swear by it!!
I purchased a teething bracelet from eBay a cherry colour which is a dark colour for $8. I had it on my daughter for about 1 week and did not notice a change at all! After doing some research on the Internet (which I should have done first) there is quite alot of fake amber teething jewlerry around and a way to tell is if you put it in salty water real amber will float whereas fake amber will sink. So I tested the bracelet and of course it sank. I also found out the lighter colours work better. So I had a look online and found recommendations f...or flower child where I purchased a light colored necklace for $40. It took a day and I noticed a big change in my daughter, her cheeks are not even close to being as red as they used to be. She isn't cranky and irritable like before. When she sleeps I wrap the necklace around her ankle just to be safe as it might get caught in her sleep. I highly recommend it, no harm in trying just make sure you buy from a genuine company :) Noticed a change in my daughter overnight! Love it!
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 said you can still get great results from a bracelet! Amber can be very safe when used safely. Take a look at our care and safety of amber page for some great tips. Many people chose to wear a necklace but during sleep times wrap it safely around the ankle.
Thanks. Kirsten @ Amberocks
i would not recommend these to anyone. they are an absolute waste of money, If you do 1 minute of research on them you will find that there is no evidence that they do anything except act as a choking hazard and make heaps of money for the scammer selling them. This website is a good read https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/amber-waves-of-woo/. The only ambor i would allow into my body is an icey cold ambor ale
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.
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??
Is your information from a reliable source? There is a lot of false stories going around in relation to a lot of different baby products. It is advised that you supervise your baby at all times when wearing the bracelet or necklace just as you would supervise your baby when playing with their toys or eating. 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. If the string does break there should be a knot in between each individual bead so that only one piece of amber will fall off.
