The Life-Changing Benefits of Baltic Amber Necklaces
What Are Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces?
In the last few years, Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces have been on the receiving end of increasing buzz. This natural source of teething relief for babies has been reported to be invaluable in resolving the fussiness and irritability that generally accompanies your baby's teething process. Baltic Amber is a type of fossilized resin gotten from the Baltic Region forests. It is non-toxic and comes in a variety of colors, but the type used as teething necklaces are usually brown or milky in color. Its significance dates back tens of millions of years, as far back as the era of the cavemen.
How Does It Work?
Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces have Succinic Acid as their potent ingredient. Succinic Acid is found in many medicinal therapies and is sold in pharmacies across many European and Asian countries. The teething necklace is worn around your baby's neck, it warms up and then releases oils which are rich in Succinic Acid. The Succinic Acid is absorbed via the baby's skin and helps relieve the discomfort that comes with teething. Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces have the highest content of Succinic Acid, said to be about 8%. Succinic acid has anti-inflammatory, soothing, anti-oxidant and immune-boosting properties. Baltic Amber has also been used in people with Arthritis, Rheumatism and Heart conditions. The Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces can either be made of raw unpolished or polished Amber. However, the raw unpolished type has been recommended as it contains higher Succinic Acid content. The polished type also comes with the risk of having the active ingredient sealed inside following the polishing process, preventing its release from the Amber.
How To Use
Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces can be the pop clasp or the twist clasp type. The pop clasp type opens up when pulled, it is reusable, however, but may cause it to get lost easily. The clasp type does not open up when it is tugged but can break open when excessively pulled. Once broken, this type is not reusable.
The Baltic Amber Teething Necklace is worn around the baby's neck, making sure it is loose enough to not constitute a choking hazard, but also should definitely not be made too long. The pop clasp type is preferred as its release mechanism provides an extra safety measure against chocking and strangulation. The necklace is left to work its magic by releasing its active ingredient, Succinic Acid.
Your baby should only have the necklace on when awake. The necklaces should never be worn while the baby is taking a nap or sleeping at night.
The necklaces should only be worn while the baby is adequately supervised.
Babies can start wearing the Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces from as young as three months up until about three years.
Always take off the necklace before entering a chlorinated pool.
Clean baby's Baltic Amber Teething Necklace every month gently with soap followed by dry heating in the sun.
Most Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces go for about $20. Once acquired and properly used, you definitely become one of the lucky moms whose babies enjoy a discomfort-free teething experience!
