November Giveaway – Amber Teething Necklace

Congratulations to Lori P whose name was drawn in our October giveaway. Congratulations Lori, your name was picked! To claim your Be Quick, please email admin@babiesbottomsandmore.com or call 972.424.4994 before Wednesday, November 7 at 9 pm. Thanks!

This month we’re giving away a perennial favorite – an amber teething necklace from Healing Amber. This 13″ necklace features multicolored polished chunks of amber for your little one. The thread is knotted in between each bead so that even if the thread breaks, all the beads but one will stay strung to reduce choking hazards. The clasp is designed to break under pressure as a safety precaution. Amber necklaces, though they are often called “teething necklaces” are not meant to be chewed on. In fact, with a proper fit, the necklace should be long enough that you can easily slip two fingers in between the necklace and your little one’s neck, but not long enough for them to get it in their mouth.

From Healing Amber’s website:

Used for centuries, Baltic Amber has been used for a variety of ailments from teething pain to arthritis. Scientific research has shown that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body. It improves immunity and the balance of acids when absorbed into the bloodstream, it stimulates the thyroid glands to help reduce drooling and soothe inflammed areas. Amber’s anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are recognised by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic (pain reliever), which can help to relieve many painful conditions.

Amber is associated with sunlight and warmth and reputed to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, accelerates the healing of wounds, reduce inflammation of the throat, ear and stomach infections and respiratory disease. Amber is unique and has amazing results which are all natural. Baltic Amber is a traditional European baby teething remedy which has become popular all over the world.

Safety Disclaimer ~ please don’t leave children unattended with their necklace or bracelet, it may present a choking hazard.

At first, I thought all these moms who swore by amber necklaces were crazy. The necklaces were pretty, sure, and kinda cute to see on a baby, but thought it sounded a little far-fetched. I wasn’t even convinced when I put a necklace on my son and noticed his fussiness calm down, because I thought I could just be imagining it. But then I got the mother-of-all-cricks in my neck. For three days, I would stretch and massage my neck and get about half of it worked out by bedtime… and then I’d wake up each morning and it would be back in all its crampiness. I was not a joy to be around those three days, I was grumpy and cranky because I was in pain. On the third night I thought “I can’t take this any more!” and grabbed an amber necklace, put it on, and fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning, my neck still hurt – but not any more than it had when I went to bed! As I went through the day, I noticed that although the pain was still noticeable and I still couldn’t turn my head fully to one side, it wasn’t severe enough to be making me grumpy. It was just there. The pain lessened each day as I wore the necklace 24 hours a day, and after a few more days it was gone.

Fast forward a couple weeks and one lady in the store really wanted a Molasses amber necklace like the one I was wearing, but we were sold out of that color. I offered to order it, but she needed it to help with migraines and understandably didn’t want to wait, so I sold her the one off my neck. That night I ordered more, including another molasses one for me because I love the way the warm black of the amber sets off the warm white of my pearl earrings, I didn’t want a diferent color. Two days later, two days of not wearing amber, the pain in my neck was back. I pulled a necklace off the shelf and put it on and again, 24 hours later the pain was almost gone.

If you’d like your own amber necklace, either for pain relief or because they’re a beautiful, 100% natural alternative to mass produced costume jewelry, we have them in the store. Child necklaces range from $18.99 – $22.00 and adult necklaces are $29.99. All our amber is sourced from reputable distributors and manufacturers so you can be assured you are getting genuine Baltic amber and not plastic, glass, or dried (not fossilized) tree sap substitutes which do not share genuine amber’s healing properties.

Child amber bracelets and necklaces can also be purchased through our website here: http://babiesbottomsandmore.com/knteam.html
