*Please ignore the fact that it is suppose to say teething as opposed to teeth!*

I just got my Amber teething necklace in the mail for ds and he is wearing it now but I am wondering if maybe it should be longer? It is 12" long and I have a fairly chubby little one. It is about 2 finger width's away from his neck. Does that sound right? or should I order the next length up? Obviously I will keep an eye on it as he grows but I just want to make sure it is ok for now.

Added pic.. I pulled it down with my finger... It mostly stays right up under his rolls

I get nervous with it around Lyra's neck. It always creeps into her neck folds too. Even though I bought the 'safety clasp' one that will undo if pulled on.

Now i double it up and she wears it on her ankle instead. It doesn't need to be near the teeth, just touching the skin. maybe try that?

Both my DS's have worn amber necklaces since they were about 3 months old. I've got nothing to compare it too, but I hardly even noticed DS1 teething. I have never worried about it choking him. My sister has broken two by pulling on them, so they will break if any serious stress is put on them.

FYI, I wear amber for back pain and LOVE it!!! My dad sells them at his dental office for dental pain. I seriously think amber is a miracle! I've got a coupon code for 15% off necklaces at the site I buy them from. If anyone wants it, PM me.
