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

    I ❤ amber necklaces!! My sis just had a new baby girl and if I am chosen I will give the necklace to my sister for baby Reagan. 😀
    My favorite kind of amber is raw lemonade. 😀

  2. Laura Choffel says:

    I have never used them but have a friend who swears by them for her teething baby! I too get terrible neck pains and would love to try some maple syrup amber around my neck and will definitely be trying them on my little one when she starts teething 🙂

  3. Lindy says:

    I think I like the maple and molasses mix. It is a good diverse piece that would go with black or brown outfits (for an adult), but could go for a baby boy or girl too.

  4. Heather says:

    I think all of them are really different and have a special charm in their own way, but personally, I like the shiny black molasses because it’s such a versatile color to wear.

    • My son (21 mo) wears his rainbow amber ALL the time, to the point that he forgets he has it on and will point to other necklaces we have in the store and want me to put them on him, then he is surprised when I show him that he already has one on!

  5. Thank you for faithfully posting such amazing giveaways! I love the multistrand/rainbow, but if I had to pick just one bead, I think I do like the variation in the olive fleck stones. We could really use one of these necklaces right now! 😉 Thanks again.

  6. Abigail Thomson says:

    Amber has always been one of my favourite stones, I especially love this necklace for the black stones. Willing to try anything, this seems so neat, glad to have had a chance.

  7. I’m not sure I could even begin to pick which amber I like the most. I think it’s all so beautiful. The cracks and flecks, the beautiful range from butter light to deep cogniac, I just love it all!!!

  8. tracy taylor says:

    I didn’t think amber would work until I started wearing one for migraines. I don’t get them that often now and if I do they arent as strong!

  9. Liesl R says:

    So far, I have loved looking at the dark molasses and the liquid gold amber necklaces. I definitely prefer the look of the polished, but I can see the beauty of the raw as well… I can’t wait to have some spare cash to get to buy one for myself and my 3 month old son! They are so pretty!
