(Update on 3.22.13 about where to buy at the bottom of this blog post)
Some notes when ordering your necklace:
Raw amber works the best because it has higher levels of succinic acid, which is the natural pain reliever and anti-inflammatory found in amber. Typically, the lighter the color the stronger the amber; however, too high amounts of succinic acid can irritate the skin. Therefore, we chose a medium colored necklace. (Emerson has sensitive skin). The necklace is supposed to be worn against the skin (under clothes) and is not meant as a "teether" or to be chewed on by your teething infant. The heat from the skin causes the acid to release. It also works best if it is worn 24/7. We co-sleep so it is easy for me to keep an eye on him while he wears it to sleep, but I can see how this would worry some parents whose children sleep in another room. The necklace is only $19 and can be purchased via the link below. I recommend this one because the beads are individually tied so if your little one breaks it beads do not go everywhere.
