Amber Necklaces for Baby

It’s unusual, now that I’m three babies into my life, to learn of some natural baby-related item that I’ve not heard of before.  But it happened recently.  Upon learning that I have a baby whose sleeping habits at night are, let’s say, challenging, someone told me about amber necklaces for children.

I have always loved amber, just for its beauty, but apparently that’s not all there is to it.  The site from which I bought it offers a bit more information:

Amber is not an actual stone but rather crafted from the now fossilized resin of a tree. Initially this resin served the tree as an antibiotic that protected it from different viruses. People would at times take the resin and use it as a wound dressing to promote faster healing. Amber from the Baltic region is known to contain the highest concentrate of succinic acid which is why amber is often refered as succinite. Succinite, an ancient fossilized resin, is known as an amazing all natural healer and anti-oxidant.

I think I read somewhere that wearing the amber heats when lying against our bodies, and the heat helps to release its healing qualities.

I was a wee bit skeptical.  But you never know, and $22 seemed like a small price to pay for my (sleep) sanity, or even a lottery ticket chance at such sanity.  (There are nights when I’d consider trading my left lung for a little more rest.)  So I bought the cognac amber baby necklace (there are different shades to amber, but they all work in the same way) and put it on straightaway.

It’s been a few weeks, and I’m here to report that I haven’t noticed any real change in my baby’s sleeping patterns.  Some nights are better than others, but that was true pre-amber necklace too.  I really can’t endorse the usefulness of the necklace from my own experience.

So why am I writing about it?  Mostly because it’s not well known but could be helpful to somebody.  Some people really have had good experiences with it – I read a bunch of these voluntary reviews on the Mothering community website.  One person believed in it so strongly, it has become her go-to newborn baby gift.

Because it hasn’t worked noticeably for us, I won’t be gifting it, but I think it’s worth a try for any sleep-deprived mama.  As I said, I love amber anyway, so I have left it on my son.  It may look feminine – a little girl asked me the other day why a boy is wearing a necklace.  But my baby boys have always been mistaken for girls regardless of what they’re wearing – so much so that I have stopped correcting the error – so even if I cared about these things (which I don’t), it wouldn’t make much difference.

Plus, there’s always the possibility that the necklace is making some small, unappreciable improvement, or will do so in the future.  If it gives me one additional minute of sleep, I’ll take it.

  1. I know so many little boys who wear amber necklaces and their mummies swear by them! As a Mum of a great sleeper…just not for long periods of time…I had considered it but reading your review confirmed my intuition. I think our nights of broken sleep are just part of the long haul of being a parent. I am leaning toward thinking acceptance is the answer, not amber.

Not knowing what type of pattern you’re using, I’m going to make a few assumptions.. . Are you using an appropriate size of Nymo or Fireline? If so, it could be a tension issue. If you’re not holding your tension tightly enough it may prevent the pattern stabilizing. Conversely, if your tension is too tight, your work will curl on itself…the tension follows the thread despite the beads.. . If tension is not the issue, are you using conditioned thread? The use of either beeswax or Bead Heaven on your thread before you work could solve your problem as it would give a little more stability to your thread.. .

I would first write your idea down to get an idea of how you want to have your business. You didn’t say if it was an on line business or not. You could start with Etsy but remember it is for stuff you made yourself. It is the cheapest and there are alot of forums by way more experienced artist than us to draw on for advice. The shop is as big as you want and you can have sections. They push your pictures out to Google for free and also sell tiny blocks of advertising. If you don’t have money to really invest Etsy is the way to go. You can also have a blog about what you do. Make business cards and bring your jewelry to the office and where ever you go. I carry mine in stackable trays that fit in carrying cases that I can also bring to shows. Also offer to restring and repair jewelry in your job and neighborhood. Go to local church fairs and flea markets. Its all by word of mouth. Make sure your jewelry is really finished well and can be magnified if you are on line. You certainly don’t want defects in workmanship to show up when you publish your work! Also watch what the girls wear in the office. Look at the colors and the styles they wear. Just make sure you bring stuff that you know will match their clothing and style. Do you have the fake boob girls in your office? Bring long necklaces that go between the boobs. Do you have loud girls? Bring loud jewelry. Do you have quiet girls that wear understated jewelry? Bring understated jewelry. Are you all on a budget? Bring affordable jewelry. Judge the market you are dealing with at hand to start your business and then branch out and target what you desire to reach. Your best friend is word of mouth. Your best friend is being a good listener even when its good or bad. :). Kathy I make fashion jewelry. How can i include my signature on my work?
