I was recently contacted by SuperMama to try out their product: the Amber Teething Pain Relief Necklace . Before I get to my review (and the giveaway!), I wanted to share some information with you about the Teething Pain Relief Necklace.
About the Product
Amber, the fossilized resin from prehistoric trees that date as far back as 50 million years, has been worn for centuries as a natural remedy to relieve pain, promote fast healing and boost the body’s own immune system. Worn against a baby’s skin, the Baltic amber necklace releases natural oils with proven analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects that soothe teething pain and reduce inflammation as well as drooling.
While most other teething pain treatments involve applying gels, taking tablets or chewing biscuits, amber is different. The oils released from amber contain succinic acid, which recent scientific research has proven to have a beneficial effect on the human body. Benefits include stimulating the thyroid glands to help reduce drooling and soothe red, inflamed cheeks, in addition to other calmative and anti-fever functions. Simply put the necklace on baby’s neck, and it will work by itself (the necklace is not intended to be chewed, but simply worn).
The Baltic amber teething necklace has been around for decades in Europe, and is even sold in pharmacies in Germany and Switzerland, and is recommended by European Pediatricians.
My Review of the Teething Pain Relief Necklace
Parker is teething right now. He just cut tooth #8 and he’s working on 9 and 10 as well. Parker started teething later than any of my other kids, but once he started, it took off like a rocket. Because he’s cut so many teeth so quickly, it has been a painful, horrible experience for both of us. When SuperMama contacted me and asked if I’d like to try the Teething Pain Relief Necklace, I jumped at the chance. I would give anything to find something that actually provides relief to my poor little guy!
The package arrived late last week, and I immediately put it on him. I honestly had no idea what to expect, or how fast I could expect to see any changes – if there even would be any. I am not kidding when I tell you that I noticed a change right away.
Parker is a drooler. It’s bad. But, when he’s wearing the necklace, there’s no drool. He doesn’t gnaw on anything he can get his mouth on, and he actually seems happy. No Tylenol or Motrin needed.
I left the necklace on him all day Saturday. No drool. No cranky baby. We even went to a birthday party on Saturday night, and Parker was as happy as could be. He showed no signs of teething pain at all. I thought it was a fluke. There was no way this necklace could work that well that fast.
So, on Sunday, I left the necklace off all day. Parker was back to his old self – drool everywhere, cranky, chewing on anything he could find. Just miserable. Sunday evening, after church, I put the necklace back on him and couldn’t believe the change it made in him. I’m convinced that this necklace really works – at least on Parker. There’s no medicine involved – no messy tablets, no gels, nothing. Just clip on the necklace and go. How easy is that?
And the necklace offers several safety features that I LOVE:
- It is CPSIA complaint, and has been tested in a 3rd party lab to make sure it’s safe.
- The clasp is made of plastic and the screw will break away with pressure.
- Each bead (made of pure, natural Baltic amber) on the necklace is individually knotted for safety and durability. That means if the necklace breaks, only one bead will come off.
- The size of the beads was selected so that if the baby ingests a bead, he will simply pass it through harmlessly.
Now, I don’t recommend letting your baby eat the beads, but if something happened, it’s good to know he’d be ok. And I love that it’s individually knotted. It’s that one extra step that makes all the difference in the world.
The only drawback is that I’m not comfortable letting him sleep in the necklace. So, that means we deal with the teething pain and discomfort at night. But, during the day, he loves wearing it, and I love how much it seems to help him. And it is a little pricey at $26, BUT, when you think about all the money you spend on tablets, gels, and other pain relief products for baby, it’s really not such a bad deal.
Overall, I am really impressed with the SuperMama Teething Pain Relief Necklace . I know there’s no such thing as a “miracle item,” but this has really made a tremendous difference in Parker. I can’t promise that it will work this well for you, because every baby is different, but I am really wishing I had had this with each of my teething babies!
