How do Amber Teething Necklaces Work
Have you ever heard about amber necklace teething? Perhaps many people are familiar with this necklace which is made of yellowish-brown pearly beads. The necklaces are now gaining popularity in the market. Many parents are interested in buying the necklaces because they are claimed as natural painkiller for baby teething. The teething amber necklace works through this mechanism: First, it is worn by the baby. The baby skin transfers the body heat to the beads so the beads produce oil containing succinic acid. The oil then is absorbed through the skin so it can relieve pain. This mechanism seems to make sense that many people believe that the amber beads are really powerful.
However, there is no research proving that teething necklace whatever the material is, whether it is amber, stone, etc., can really work as painkillers. According to many experts, there is no evidence that the succinic acid contained in the oil released by the amber beds can be absorbed through baby skin. Even if it is true, no pediatrician recommends parents to put a beaded necklace around baby’s neck. There are risks of strangulation and choking. If the bead chocks the baby, it can be a dangerous situation because it blocks the throat and the baby stops breathing. It can cause death.
