Do these teething necklaces really help with the teething discomfort? Any sites that are recommended by members - i.e., the necklaces are strung to withstand baby tugging, and the amber is good quality?

Also while we are at it, any nursing necklace sites that are particularly good?

Thanks in advance.

I would *NOT* put a necklace on my 7 mo old because of the choking and strangulation hazards.

I do, however, use nursing necklaces all the time! They are *TERRIFIC*. I would definitely recommend getting one! I would look for one without a clasp and very strongly made. I prefer ones with real gemstones rather than plastic beads - that way they are *beautiful* and I can wear them even when the baby is not with me! PM me if you've got any more questions.

Have you tried homeopathic teething tablets? Or homeopathic chamomila? They can work really well!

My baby has an amber necklace. I keep a close eye on him and would not leave him alone with it on. They are made to break with enough tugging to cause your child serious harm and there is knotting between each bead to keep kids from eating the beads if the necklaces do break. We've had no problems at all with it, no scares, and he doesn't notice it and so doesn't play with it (DS is 8mo). I can't remember where I got mine but googling worked well to find a company. They all seem to be about the same quality to me.

For nursing necklaces I got mine at www.mommynecklaces.com.

My ds is 10mo and he wears his all the time. Most of the time he totally forgets it's there. It seems to be working. I've only had to give him teething tabs/drops a few times and his first tooth just popped through this weekend.

My sister just got her son one and I think I may as well. She says she is noticing a difference in his fussiness. It totally makes sense to me!
This is the one that she got...

Really cute huh? And a fair price.

Joyful mama of 3.

Oooh...I just wrote all about my amber teething necklace experience here (as well as homeopathic options too). We have the Nova Naturals one too.
