Baltic Amber Teething Jewelry is designed for wearing NOT CHEWING. Baltic Amber is found in and around the Baltic sea where an ancient species of trees was washed to shore to fossilize and create the unique and healing resin we know as Baltic Amber. What makes Baltic Amber so effective is it's high content of succinic acid. Succinic acid is a natural pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and central nervous system calmer. It is so effective on babies and small children because it simultaneously eases their pain while also having a strong soothing effect on their nervous system - all with zero side effects! Used for centuries in Europe, Amber's natural anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties are perfect to soothe teething pain. Amber is fossilized resin, which warms when worn against the skin, releasing its therapeutic properties safely and naturally. All teething jewelry is knotted between every bead to prevent loss of beads should the string break (which it is designed to do under pressure for safety reasons) and fastens with a plastic screw clasp.
Children should be supervised while wearing the jewelry and the jewelry should be removed from the child's neck while sleeping.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD. CONTAINS SMALL PIECES! A new legislation came into effect February, 2009. It mandates an age recommendation of 3 years or older due to small parts. This jewelry is not intended for children under 3 years old. If you do not see this mandate listed on other Baltic Amber Teething Necklace retailers, they are in violation of US law.
