What size is best? We suggest newborn through 11 months can fit the 11 inch well. In fact, many children up to 3 years can still fit this Baltic Amber Teething Necklace, but for the average baby, 11 months is maximum. If you can fit 3 fingers in, it's a great fit. From 5 months to 5 years, we suggest 12.5 inches. The necklaces are stretchable as well if you need an extra inch. Without pulling at the clasps, gently pull bead to bead until you've gone around the entire necklace one time. Try out the new size and repeat if a longer length is desired.
How to clean them: Just use hot water and cloth to wipe the beads if needed. Can they get wet? Yes, they can but we prefer to keep them chemical free as the chemicals may interfere with the effectiveness. This often means removing during bath and pool.
Is there actual food in the necklace? No, the colors of the necklace are shades: Milk is a whitish yellow, Lemon is a lemony yellow. Honey is a golden yellowish brown. It can vary light to dark based on when the amber was mined. Cognac is a darker brown and varies from light to dark based on when the amber was mined. Cherry is typically black in color. Occasionally you may notice some red or ruby tints but cherry is mostly black. Multi or Rainbow are a mix of three or four colors above typically. We also have semi-precious rainbow and that mixes the gemstones in our necklaces.
If I purchase two, will they be identical? Probably not! The baltic amber is all natural from the earth. Each bit of tree resin is hardened into a bead to be placed onto the necklace. The beads are sorted by size and strung. But color, shape, texture can vary from necklace to necklace. It is more rare to find two that are exact.
The most often asked question - WHICH IS BEST for my child? Raw? Polished? Color
The answer is simple. For teething - they all work GREAT. There is absolutely no difference in color or polish when it comes to teething. 99% of babies will see results in 30 minutes. The few who do not may take up to 4 days. If you still are not seeing results, contact us, we can swap for amber from a different batch. It is rare, but some babies DO respond to one color vs another (very rare) and in even more rare occurrences, roughly .005% of babies will not respond to amber at all. We are happy to work with you to exchange or refund if that is your experience. Just buy the Baltic Amber Teething Necklace you love and it should work well for your baby & toddler! Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces are the best gift you can give to a new mom!
