Edit: Amber teething necklaces - hype, placebo effect, or couldn't live without it?
I've been doing some reading and the opinions vary widely from they're amazing to being a dramatic safety hazard, that they're nothing more than the placebo effect to "my baby was improved by the next day!"
What has your experience been?
Edit: I understand the wee babe has no idea that the necklace is supposed to be helping. :) the placebo effect refers to the theory that some exhausted, sleep-deprived, "desperate" parents can see an effect when there really isn't any - or they attribute a coincidental, temporary relief to the necklace that would have occurred anyway. But the same could be said for teething tablets, frozen washrags, and even Tylenol! Just another theory by doubtful doctors, and I trust experiences mommas much more than them!
