Is it safe to leave the Amber necklace on my toddler's neck all night?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Is it safe to leave the Amber necklace on my toddler's neck all night?  We bought our 15 month old baby boy a Baltic Amber necklace to help soothe him while he's teething and we take it off when he goes to sleep because we're concerned about his safety and not sure it's ok to leave it on, but if it is safe, we'll just leave it on.  I'd appreciate other Mama's feedback and what you think.  Granted, there may not be a right or wrong answer, but the more Mamas who feel safe with it and encourage it, the more I will feel safe and at ease with deciding to let him wear it all night.  Thank you.

No, it is not safe. It is choking and suffocation hazard.

Almost everyone I know leaves it on 24/7... I personally don't feel comfortable with it, though, so I don't leave it on.

I put it (double) around his ankle when my toddler goes to sleep. Under his PJ's. I would not be comfortable with him having it around his neck, but at least on his ankle it is safe IMO and also still on his skin.

What about bathtime? My 2 y/o has one. I never know if they should get wet or not.

We always left ours on all night. But it has a high-quality magnet closure that will open with pressure.

We took it off for the bath though.

Most are made with the ability to "break away" if they get caught. I've forgotten to take DD's off a few times and never take it off for naps and she's been fine with it.  DH worries more so if I do want it on at night I do the ankle.  She's often in bed with me anyways but even from her crib she's across the hall less than 10' away so I hear her every move.

When DD was wearing hers a lot I put in around her ankle a couple of times and covered with her PJs. I wasn't comfortable with her having it around her neck at night because of the suffocation risk.
