Adverse Reaction to Baltic Amber

Posted by   + Show Post
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.

Could just be a coincidence...maybe he started getting sick around the same time

It was 4 years ago I saw it, I can't seem to find the link now.

Quoting Nicolle_09:

Link? I couldnt find anything

Quoting Lynette:

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.

Strange :(

Quoting soulofsunmama:

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.



Quoting Nicolle_09:

Its just strange, i want to get one for all of us but now im kinda leary. Lol maybe it has nothing to do with it but who knows.





Quoting soulofsunmama:

I have friend that absolutely swears her son had that EXACT kind of reaction to a (pure) amber necklace as well..I was kinda doubting her, but now....hmmm,weird
Quoting Nicolle_09:

Ya its amber.









Quoting jellyphish:

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

Huh. I think I've noticed a smell in dd's sweat after she's had it on for several days. That's all though. It does take a day or two for it to start to affect her though. She seems better with it but I'm not really sure. It's not a significant change so I don't know if it's just good days and bad days. She still has bad days even though she's wearing it.

HOw old is the baby? Maybe he just is cranky because he isn't used to wearing a necklace and it's buggin him.
