Inspired by Finn

Friday, August 21, 2009

Are you looking for an all natural way to help sooth your baby’s teething discomfort? Well…I may have just found your answer! Inspired by Finn Amber Teething Necklaces are a traditional European remedy using authentic Baltic Amber which is a natural analgesic (pain reliever) that when worn on the skin will release trace amounts of healing oils to calm and sooth teething pains. Not to mention it helps diaper rash too!! Each round bead is individually double-knotted on the stretchable strand and fastened with a screw clasp. Babies should be supervised while wearing the jewelry (of course) and jewelry should be removed before sleep (duh). So ladies, if you want to avoid giving your beautiful baby harmful chemicals to sooth their pain, try this age old remedy, many women I have spoken to swear by it and it’s affordable!! What do you think, fact or fiction amber helps sooth pain. And would you use it?

My Granma used to talk about amber as being a healing stone- I always thought it operated on placebo effect; I never knew that it had actual analgesic properties! And if I did have a baby I'd absolutely give it a try- I'll be forwarding this to my cousin with two little ones though. One thing I'm curious about- how is it supposed to help diaper rash?

What harmful chemicals are talking about? This is what I sometimes dislike about natural remedies, the lack of data. What are these harmful chemicals and these "healing oils"? Just because it is natural does not mean it is safe.

I think its fact. We have something similar in Asian cultures and I think this really works! There's a reason why rosary beads are used for calming and this seems to work in a similar fashion. I would use it! Plus, even it didn't work completely, it's still a pretty necklace for the baby to wear!

It would be great if it actually worked, but if would seem safer if it came in a bracelet form instead of a necklace. Even with supervision, I would probably not put a necklace on a baby.

I have dealt with this company via eBay and they're NOT very good. They hugely over charged on shipping (hello, fee circumvention?) and the necklaces I got weren't great quality. There's a reason they're "affordable." And then when I left the deserved neg feedback, I got a nasty email about how I had screw up their rating, as though I was the one in the wrong. I would NOT suggest them to anyone.

This seems great, but I have concerns about choking danger. Although of course the babies will be well-supervised, is there some other way to get a similar remedy? Perhaps a bracelet would be better. The baby could wear it around the wrist and alleviate the risk of choking. Are there any items out there like this?

Looks like an interesting concept, and I could see using the necklace for teething....but how would that do it for diaper rash? I think if you made the necklace cold by refrigerating it would also naturally help. I dont think I would look away either while a baby is using this!

This sounds like a great item. How long does the natural analgesic continue to release? Will it need to be replaced within a certain time period? Is it safe if the necklace is constantly being put into the baby's mouth? Will it being in the mouth make the nataral analgesic rub off at a faster rate? I would be willing to try to see if it works on my baby.

A natural pain reliever is a great idea but not on a teething necklace, it is too dangerous. I use a very cold washcloth and/or slightly melted ice cubes and it does the job.

I'm skeptical about the "healing oils" to sooth teething pains. I don't really think it would have much of an effect -- especially on diaper rash -- but the color of the bracelet might have a psychological effect. Brightly colored plastic baby toys have a different feel (red = alarming, in which we respond with a heightened heart rate; blue = cold, in which we develop distance or separation), as opposed to amber, which is a more warming and soothing color. It's sort of like aromatherapy, where warm scented candles can make us relaxed, except we're talking about color!

I have been a jewelry maker for many years and deal with Amber on a regular basis in bead form as well as in chunk form, as a collectible. Yes, Amber is said to have healing properties, much like the healing properties attributed to crystals, hematite, malachite, amethyst, etc. How well it works is up for debate however. Other than possible choking hazards, my main concern here is in finding REAL Amber; fake plastic beads are often sold as "Real" and it is difficult for a person unfamiliar with the real thing to tell the difference. There are many many reputable dealers in REAL Amber, but the real deal is NOT cheap! A decent string of real pearls can set you back less than a decent string of amber! I would suggest learning how to test for authenticity and educate yourself as much as possible before purchasing. As always; Buyer Beware!
