Necklaces made from amber beads are the latest trend. They allegedly reduce teething pain, although there isn’t any science to back up the claims.
What pediatricians do know is that the necklaces pose a risk for choking and strangulation.
Do not place teething necklaces around your chid’s neck. Placing the necklace on a wrist or ankle does not remove the risk of choking on a bead.
