Amber teething jewellery

Amber teething beads are often sold as baby 'teething aids'. They have caused serious injuries and deaths.

Never use amber teething jewellery such as necklaces, bracelets and anklets. They are not safe and could choke any child under 3 years of age

The jewellery usually contains many small amber beads. These can come loose from the string and be swallowed or inhaled. This can cause choking.

The amber beads used in this type of jewellery can shatter into smaller parts. This can lead to choking.

Never put any kind of cord, string or chain jewellery around a baby’s neck.
