    Default Enlighten me....baby necklaces

    I keep seeing babies in pictures on the board with those adorable little necklaces on. They are beaded necklaces and I *think* they are for teething, right? Where do you find them, how much are they, when do you start using them...etc etc. And obviously they are safe, right? Otherwise I wouldn't see them so often. How do they not break if the kid bites them all day?

    I don't know but one of my board member's baby wears them. I'll ask her. I don't even wear jewelry myself but they really are cute! I'll see if she answers then I'll post it here.

    I have them for both my girls. They're amber, and they're supposed to help with teething. I don't know if they do or I have really good teethers, but I never had problems with either of my girls. Inspiredbyfinn is where I got mine. They're on deal a day sites sometimes. I put one on my first DD when she was about 7 months old and my second when she was 2 months old. They wear them all the time, but some people like to wrap them around their ankles while they sleep. They don't chew on them/bite them...If you go to inspired by finn's page (search in google) it explains how it helps.

    They're also individually tied off after every bead. My second had a bead break, and there's just a spot on the necklace where the bead isn't there anymore. I'm going to order her a new one when I decide on which one to get my 3rd.

    Amber is a resin so when it's against the warmth of the skin it's absorbed. It's a natural anelgesic, so it may help teething pain. Necklaces are generally short enough so that the baby can't pull it to its mouth to chew on. And the beads are softened and knotted off individually. I have also heard that the lighter the colour of the stone the better the effect.

    You can get them on etsy or straight from Lithuania where most of the amber used is from. I have some from Inspired by Finn, one from a company in Lithuania and one from a seller on etsy. I've found they're all really good quality and my girls seem to like them. Plus, they look so pretty.

    Yup, Annmarie explained it all. My daughter got her first necklace when she was about 3 mos old. My SIL who lives in Latvia (one of the main places amber is found) sent it for her. I'm Latvian as well, so amber is special to us anyway, so it was fitting for my daughter to wear an amber necklace. She got a new one (that I liked the look of better) when we were in South Africa when she was 6 mos old. We were more careful with it when she was really little- taking it off for sleep, etc...but since 6 mos, she hasn't had it off once.
    I always say, "if it helps with the teething, I would HATE to see her without it!" If it doesn't help, at least it's SUPER CUTE!

    My DS isn't the best teether so if it works I'd hate to see him without, but when he got his first lot I was taking it off at night, baths etc. Now it's on 24/7 so we will see with the next lot. Everyone thinks he looks like a little surfer with it on.
