Its funny before I sat down to write this product review I wasn't fully sure what Amber was. All I was sure of, was that it helped Mini miss with her teething and I myself wear it for my back pain. OK so you may think that's a bit irresponsible to put a product on my child that I knew very little about, but id heard so many rave about it and Mini miss was having such a rough road (check out Mini miss reflux journey) I was willing to try anything that may help her. I've never looked back and the day her first necklace broke I rushed out to buy another one, I just wasn't taking the chance that she would suffer from not wearing it. I recall two nights where we just couldn't find Mini miss's necklace when we'd taken it off for her bath, she went without the Amber necklace for two days. I was truly astonished it was clear that once I put the necklace back on, when we found it mixed in with the lego, (sure where else would it be) that her teething pains subsided and she was generally happier.
Mini miss has never fussed over her necklace, she's never pulled at it, chewed it, got caught in it or really ever took any heed of it. Initially I started with the bracelet on her ankle when she was very small but I felt she needed more Amber, and once she started to wear the necklace this was when I noticed the reduction in teething pain. Mini miss would have big red checks but she would be quiet content in herself, I would rarely have to give calpol, (on/ two nights max) only at that stage where the tooth was really cutting through the gum, I do really feel this was down to her Amber SOS necklace.
There has definitely been an element of the safety issue regarding babies wearing the Amber products and in recent times, regulations have changed. I can whole heartily say I have no problem with Mini miss wearing hers all the time, but it is my choice as a Mam to make for my child I will direct you to the Safety Page on Amber SOS and you can have a read. Below is a picture of the pop clasp that the products are fitted with. It is importat to mention here that Amber SOS adhere to all EU and International Standards.
