My DS is 8 wks old, fairly fussy in the evenings and early morning with gas. I've been seeing posts concerning Amber Necklaces, mostly in regards to teething. I've done a little internet searching, there seem to be a lot of claims regarding them, and a lot of sites that sell them. I have a couple of questions:

1) Do they work? I'd love to hear Mama's true life experiences.
2) Only for teething, or for general fussiness too?
3) Where is the best place to buy them?

Thanks!

i love ours. my ds has worn one since he was born. he's 2.5 right now and we have had little problems with teething.

best place to buy? i think we got ours from wonderousgems.com but im not sure they are still in business.

I use them on my 10mo and it definitely seems to help her fussiness and teething symptoms. She gets really happy when she sees it coming.
I was skeptical but I think it really works. I will pm you about where I got mine.

our worked really well from about 2.5 months. she is now 10 months and wears it frequently. she has 6 teeth, and i'd say only two of those were horrible. but the necklace helped those too in combo with hyland's teething tablets.

we bought ours at inspired by finn (www.forfinn.com).

for twelve dollars, totally worth it!

I didn't know about them with my older two, but since the babies are having a hard time with teething (and there are two of them going through it at the same time = overwhelming) I figured it wouldn't hurt to try. I just ordered two from the same place leanbh recommended.
