  • I had never even heard of these until your question popped up....I have no idea how or if they work, but they are kind of cool to look at!

  • They look nice but they also look dangerous and I wouldn't put them on my baby.

  • It sounds like a very interesting theory, but anything and everything baby gets in their hands goes in the mouth. Since it is not safe to chew on amber I wouldn't give this to my child. Think I will stick with regular teethers!

  • They look like they would be a choking hazard and I have no idea how/why amber is supposed to have "anti-teething properties" -- I thought they were just pretty rocks!

  • The amber is not a rock -- it is a hardened tree sap. When worn on the skin the body heat releases the oils which have pain relieving properties. So yes, they do work! Myself & all 3 of my kids wear them. For babies / toddlers get a necklace that is not long enough for them to get into thier mouth and take it off when the sleep or you are not near by.
