Do Teething Necklaces really work? | Melikey

Teething necklaces and bracelets are usually made of amber, wood, marble or silicone. A 2019 study by Canadian and Australian researchers found these claims of benefit to be false. They determined that Baltic amber does not release succinic acid when worn next to the skin.

Do Teething Necklaces really work?

Yes. But Here is the important warning. Modern science does not support the use of Amber Teething necklaces to relieve teething pain.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) does not recommend that infants wear any jewelry. Suffocation is the leading cause of death for children under a year old and among the top five causes of death for children between the ages of 1 and 4 . If you intend to use a teething necklace it should only be worn by the caregiver and done so under supervision at all times.

There are two types of teething necklaces — the ones made for babies to wear and the ones made for moms to wear.

Teething necklaces designed for babies should be avoided. They may look cute, but you could endanger your child's life with them. They can cause suffocation or suffocation. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you do not purchase a teething necklace designed for your baby.

The other kind of teething necklace is made for mothers to wear while their babies chew on them. These are made out of baby-safe, chewy materials that can be cleaned after being doused in drool. But you’ll still need to be vigilant while your baby is gnawing on it.

If you choose to use a teething necklace, we recommend purchasing a 100% food grade silicone teething necklace designed for mom to wear.

How to choose the best teething necklace?

Before buying a teething necklace, you should consider the following:

Non-toxic: Make sure your necklace is truly non-toxic. Look for 100% food-grade FDA-approved silicones that are free of BPA, phthalates, cadmium, lead and latex.

Effectiveness: Make sure people have a scientific basis for their claims about teething necklaces. For example, amber beads have not been proven to help babies more than any other type of material, or even harmful.

Alternatives: If you don't think they're right for you and your baby, you can always buy a teething toy or find fabric for them to chew on and put ice on the gums.
