Baltic Amber Teething Necklace For Kamea

by Kristen Suzanne

Kamea turned 8 months at the end of February and she is just now cutting her first tooth (looks like her second is close to coming in, too). For the past couple of months, I’ve been putting a baltic amber teething necklace on Kamea in an attempt to help her through any discomfort she might have from teething. I remember when I first heard of these necklaces, and decided I wanted to look into buying one… I thought they were for chewing on. No – lol! It’s a necklace that is worn. The warmth from the baby’s skin causes the necklace to release small amounts of a healing oil, which are then absorbed into the baby’s skin, helping with inflammation and teething. Baltic amber teething necklaces have high concentrations of sussinic acid in them and they’ve been used for hundreds of years (more details here). They can be worn by babies between ages 3 months to 2 years. Other reputed benefits are that they are soothing and calming for fussy babies, accelerate healing from the teething process, and have immune boosting properties. Makes me want to get one for myself! :)

Kamea wears her baltic amber teething necklace all day and she looks super stylin’. But, when she sleeps at night, I take it off for safety purposes. I sometimes let her wear it during her naps, but that’s because I’m usually next to her while she sleeps to keep a close eye on her.

Does it work? All I can say so far, now that I know she is officially teething, is that it seems to be working! Kamea hasn’t really fussed or acted as if she were experiencing pain or discomfort from teething. She has pretty much breezed through this first tooth. Now, does that mean it’s the necklace? I don’t know. Could be. Kind of cool if it is, eh? (I bought Kamea’s necklace through Amazon here.)

Does your baby wear a Baltic Amber Teething Necklace? What do you think of it?

    When I first saw you mention the Baltic Amber Teething Necklace (on Facebook maybe?) I thought that they chewed on the necklace as well! Thanks for clearing that up and providing more information. I love this picture of Kamea… she is so lucky you give her all different things to explore. Did she get curious and taste the lettuce? Great Job Mama!

    Kind of, but she's not one to put too many things in her mouth. I think it was more by accident lol.

    Yes :) I meant to tell you on FB.

    Teehee. She had a ball for a long time playing with the lettuce. :)

    Adorable pic! I also thought they were for chewing, whoops!

    We're 4 months ahead of you guys (Waits turns 1 in 3 days, CRAZY) and have not had as much luck with the teething. It's been pretty hard on the little dude. Hopefully Kamea won't need it but if she does have some pain, I highly highly recommend a product called Gum-Omile. I'm not affiliated with them at all, but I've tried every natural/hippie/homeopathic med under the sun. Most of them are worthless, but Gum-Omile is a *life saver*.

    Just a heads up – hopefully you won't need it!

    I think the Baltic amber necklace is a great idea. I've never personally bought one but what I have heard is that Amber is very soothing. When worn it produces a calming effect….and it is natural which is better than resorting to pain relievers.

    I wasn't going to get the amber necklace because I have a boy, but after he was miserable when his first two teeth came in I decided I'd try anything. He's currently cutting FIVE – yes, FIVE teeth and I didn't even notice until the top four were already poking through. So, I attribute the total change in teething attitude to the necklace. I think it's AWESOME!

    Hayden could've used one months ago. She has almost all her teeth now, but she might still want one for fashion purposes.

    Ha ha. I love that salad tossing pic. If I let Hayden play with lettuce, she'd eat it all … which isn't really a bad thing :-)

    Am looking at getting Manus one right now! Thank you for sharing this little piece of advice. I actually thought it was for chewing on as well!

    Kamea still wears hers daily. It’s her bling. ;)
