Ok we finally managered to get my now one year old an amber necklace and well its only been a few days but his level of crankiness has increased dramatically! I know it may take time to take effect but my son has always been a calmer baby.

I also know they say there are no side effects with amber but now im starting to doubt it. Any help would be great right now, daddy qnd i are at a loss.

How sure are you that it's genuine Baltic amber and not plastic?

I guess you could test it, take it off for a few days, then back on for a few. See what his mood does?

I had an extra long one for myself.  When I first put it on I felt a little dizzy.  I read up on it, I was overdosing.  So I put it on for short amounts of time, taking it off and then back on.  I had to build up to it.

Im willing to bet all of yall would be just fine...I mean I don't really know, but of all the thousands upon thousands that use them, your the only other person I've ever heard say this besides my friend, which I find crazy weird, because the *mood* change was exactly how she described it as well.
