The amber beads are either worn as a necklace around the child’s neck or as abracelet on their wrist or ankle. The string of amber beads is not meant to be chewed for teething, but rather to be worn against the child’s skin.
Riding the wave of the natural, organic craze, the oh-so-cute amber teething necklace for babies has exploded in popularity in recent years. But is it all its cracked up to be? Is there any science backing these necklaces? And are they safe?
Well answer these questions and more.
