amber necklace

Best high chair? (We all know it's the Ikea one really but refusniks will bring us tales of Tripp-Trappery and booster seats). Have you discovered an excellent finger food snack, toothbrush, bib or more importantly A Lipstick That Really Does Stay On?

I want to get one but feel so worried it will strangle if I leave it at night. Am I mad or do others worry about this ? Are magnetic ones better !

Elsie's worn one constantly since she was a few weeks old. She's never had a problem with it.

Same here. The ones we have are knotted round each bead and have a clasp that will break if it's under tension (so shouldn't strangle them). I've not tested how much tension is needed though.

Just make sure they are nice a and short so they can't be snagged on anything. I've just switched to shorter ones than we had because munchie kept eating hers and broke the beads in the clasp.

I bought ours from Amber Teething Necklaces (which, on getting their link have changed their name to baby teething necklaces!) Here the link http://www.amber-teething-necklaces.co.uk/

I just bought Ickle Pickle a congnac chipped one and, despite teeting like a total demon at the moment (cainines on the brink of appearing!) I've not needed calpol or bonjela! She's chewing her hand off, her nappies are revolting and yet, she's as chipper as ever!! Totally recommended!

I got a really pretty one from natural amber ( here's the link )

I got it when Jane was about three weeks old and she has been wearing it ever since. I don't think she even notices it any more and touch wood we haven't had any problems with it. :D

I'm completely undecided now - had decided to get one for Small Boy, but on the Amber Pumpkin website it says there has been a Trading Standards recall on all amber teething jewellery fur under 36 months. Seems to be due to the risk of choking rather than anything to do with the amber.

Are many of you still using them?

Mindy - I carried on with mine, after the recall. Ensure you buy one where the stones are individually knotted. That way - if one does come adrift, it's only one, not the whole necklace.

While he's so tiny, if you are very worried, then perhaps an anklet worn under babygrow, socks etc. Then he can't get to any beads.

Thanks Happyfeet. His necklace arrived today, and is a fairly snug fit which I'm pleased about. He certainly hasn't paid it any attention so far. It is knotted, and has a push fastening, so I think I'm going to leave it on and see how he goes. Am really hoping it helps, the poor baby is gnawing and drooling like crazy.
