Teething necklaces are a strangulation hazard!

Posted by   + Show Post

Just kidding. Now that I got your attention though, would an anklet or bracelet work well too? Just wondering since they're cheaper and I'm not a fan of necklaces on boys.

Eta: Super butter or Lemondrop?

My ds (10 months old) wears two amber necklaces that are wrapped around his ankles. I do this so that I do not have to remove them at bedtime. The anklets and bracelets were too tight or too large for him. Fyi, there was a baby that choked/strangled itself wearing the necklace to bed.

Yes, they aren't really for teething, it's the succinic acid on the skin that acts as an anti inflammatory and soother. Ours are honey colored, but out of those two, lemondrop. We do take them off when they are under 3 and aren't supervised because they can be a choking hazard.

They're called amber teething necklaces. lol  I know what they do, but they're for teething among other things.

They are to help with teething pains, but the kids don't actually teeth on them, which is why I'm saying that it would work just as well as a bracelet or anklet, it just needs to be on the skin.

Quoting Bird16_J:

Have you checked out etsy too? They have SUPER good prices on their stuff there as well!

No. Do you have one that you'd recommend? I tried to look at Idr if it was etsy or hyena cart that someone suggested but the site was down. :(

Oh, I see what you mean.  Yeah, I know they don't actually chew on them. lol

Super butter; it's amazing! And yeah, wearing it on the ankle would be fine if you are worried about strangulation.

That would be AMAZING! I want to get my other son a hazelwood necklace for his eczema. Dh's ready to strangle me with all the crap I've bought for them. And now we just paid $250 for an allergy test for one of them. lol
