Every Monday I will answer user submitted questions. They don’t have to be about cloth diapering! I’ll always answer questions via email, but if you would like your question to be answered in a Mailbox Mondays post, send an email with the subject “Mailbox Mondays” to change.diapers.change.the.world at gmail dot com!
Have you ever tried an Amber teething necklace? If so, what is your opinion? I like the concept, but fear they would be a choking hazard.
I have! I reviewed an Inspired by Finn Baltic amber teething necklace way back in April. I thought it was adorable, and did seem to make a difference for my son. One thing I really like about IBF is that the string has a teeny bit of “give” to it, and it will break if needed (like if your child were caught on something.) At the same time, the beads are separated by individual knots, so if it broke, you wouldn’t have beads everywhere.
That said, we stopped using it when the teething eased up because my son started lifting it over his chin and into his mouth to chew on it. I thought about buying one in a shorter length so he couldn’t do that, but I never got around to it!
