Teething Necklace at Nighttime?

We visited family this past weekend and I got so much flack that baby was wearing a necklace at all that I lied and told them of course DD doesn't wear it at night! So of course they have me scared and we've been taking the necklace off every night and consequently forgetting to put it back on in the morning many days of the week.
It's a baby-sized, knotted, amber teething necklace and DD is 8mo. So what are your thoughts on nighttime necklace use? Have you ever, ever had a scare?

Re: Teething Necklace at Nighttime?

we are getting a necklace that converts to an anklet for nighttime.

I just dont feel comfy having anything around her neck at night...heck I dont wear a necklace to bed.

Personally, I would be scared to leave it on. I've read not to, and I couldn't live with myself if something were to happen.

I wouldn't do it - but I have seen some put it on the ankle - wrap it two or three times so it's tight; but not cutting off circulation.

My baby moves too much at night for me to feel safe having something like that on his neck at night.

Dd has been wearing hers 24/7 for months. She sleeps with me. It's designed to break before the pressure could choke a baby. I was a tiny bit hesitant the first night but never thought twice after that.

I wouldn't feel comfortable. I wouldn't wear a necklace to bed, either

I didn't know they were designed to break. Ours is from Baltic Creations I think; I wonder if hers are. It doesn't look like it would break, but it would be a comfort to know it would!

does yours have a clasp?

if so order this from her!

this is from her website
Quote:
These necklaces and bracelets are designed with several safety features in the event of emergency. These necklaces have been knotted between each bead as a safety measure in case the child breaks it, the necklace will only lose one bead lessening the chance of the child swallowing a bead and choking. This necklace has been designed a durable thread that with extreme force will break which is part of the design. Also this necklace has been designed with a screw clasp that is knotted from the inside that will provide a break away (separation) point in the event of being tightened too much or getting caught again to prevent the possibility of strangulation.

Re: Teething Necklace at Nighttime?

I would say no to a necklace whenever the child is not supervised, and I'm not that kinda mom. DD is allowed to play in her room alone without me worrying, but necklaces that are not made to come apart can be dangerous and so can one that does as they could get necklace lodged in their throat. I don't mean to scare you, but I have had scares where DD got her arm in the necklace and couldn't breath. But as for the family, don't let them push you into something that you don't want, put your foot down and say " I understand your concern but her father and I have discussed this and agree" or something like that. My in-laws are awful, and it took me time to learn that they would have me raising DD their way if I didn't make a stand.
