My husband is a sceptic- and really I am too- but after wearing this necklace for a month, one day my five month old little one was super fussy- not typical for her. Well, while feeding her that day, I spied *two* teeth that she had popped through with little to no previous fussing- and after that one day went back to being her amazingly calm and happy self. Now, whether she is just an easy teether or this necklace helped, who knows, but I'm sure as heck not taking it off!!!
I have not tested the products safety- by pulling on the clasp/breaking it (No way!) but the beads are individually knotted and the clasp is the kind that will slip free with pressure- although I hope to never test that.
When people ask, I tend to deflect their "wtheck is she thinking" looks by just telling them that it is for pretties and if it happens to make her in less pain, then great. And it is super pretty! This is a great color for anything a little girl might wear- a very classic color that I'm sure will never look bad as she gets older. Actually, I would love one in a longer length for me!!!
My only complaint is that it is a bit too long- she lays on it when she sleeps (on her back!). And I think that it would be incredibly uncomfortable- it leaves faint "bead marks" on her back when she wakes up. That will change as she gets older I'm sure- and also my little girl is on the small side of normal and a chubbier baby's chubby chins might prevent that. :) Also, to keep that from happening, I did try taking it off of her when she was sleeping, but I kept forgetting to put it back on. She doesn't seem to mind, so I guess I shouldn't mind either.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this amber necklace.
So I took Kylie's necklace off for her bath today and the little plug came off on the latch. I called the art of cure and talked to the lady about how the first one stretched out from getting caught on a ride on toy n then how the plug just broke off when removing it and she was awesome! She's replacing both necklaces for free!! So definitely a reputable company! And I recommend them even more! As I didn't expect the first one to be replaced as it was wrecked by us playing!! Just wanted to share the wonderful experience! And I love the necklace they help so much!!
This neckalace was way too lose on my child's neck. So loose that he could get the beads into his mouth. I don't think it is healthy for him to suck on it but there was no stopping him and also he could break it and choke on a bead or strangle himself. Stopped using this as soon as I saw him walking around with it in his mouth. He was one year old at the time.
I kept this on my baby during the day till he started crawling. It worked very well. I kept it on his ankle because his neck was so very chunky and the necklace disappeared lol. Please never leave this on your child while they sleep or while unattended. It has a safety closure that opens it when pulled and that can make it a strangulation danger.
We sadly broke this one before she started teething again and had to buy another. this worked instantly when we put it no our then 6 month old daughter. came on time, no issues. we did have to keep an eye on the clasp since it was not a twist on, but other than that wish we had never broke it.
Bought two for my twins over a year ago. I've used off and on when they are in the height of teething. The older they get the more they hate to wear them, I really haven't noticed a difference on the days that I do get them to keep them on. One of my daughters ripped the necklace completely off and broke it, so I am not impressed with the string that holds them together. They are bound to break.
My two year old was really struggling with his teeth. He was a late teether and the pain was horrible for him. He would hold his jawline and just cry. We had to give him pain medicine every 4-6hours as allowed. Once we ordered the necklace and put it on, we have not given him ANY pain medicine. This is an amazing product that every parent should own. Thanks!
It does seem to ease my daughrer's teething pain because she drools less with it on. It has no effect on her waking up at night/naps though, which was what I was hoping for. It looks nice, is easy to take on and off, and has held up well for a few months. It's long enough to comfortably double-wrap around my ~23 lb toddler's ankle at night.
