Sunday Funday Giveaway: Baltic Amber Children’s Necklace

Sunday, November 11th, 2012

Surely you have seen those adorable, earthy-looking, necklaces that many cloth-diapering, breastfeeding, and babywearing mamas use? Ever wonder what the scoop is on those? They are actually necklaces made from Baltic Amber.

What is Baltic Amber? It’s a fossilized tree resin that has a high concentration of succinic acid. Okay, well now you are probably wondering what is succinic acid? It’s a powerful anti-oxidant that can protect and heal our body. It helps restore energy, provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, and maintain overall wellness.

Baltic Amber has shown to be effective in providing comfort to teething babies; although the necklace doesn’t actually go into baby’s mouth. Rather by wearing the necklace, the succinic acid gets absorbed into the skin through contact. Some parents are concerned about the safety of amber teething necklaces. While adult supervision while baby wears necklace is strongly recommended, the necklaces are designed with two key safety features:

  • The thread is knotted after each bead so if the strand should break, loose beads will not scatter everywhere
  • The clasp is designed and tested to release if excessive force is applied to the necklace.

Would you like to win a Baltic Amber Necklace for your little one? Enter this week’s giveaway below! Winner will be announced on Sunday, November 18. Winner will be notified via email and is asked to respond within 48 hours to claim their prize.

Good luck mamas!
