Mon Petit Mardi is a boutique for babies, children and mommies too!
After taking a peek at the Mon Petit Mardi website I was very excited to do a review for them as I saw a few items that I thought would be great for our family. 🙂 One of the things I really wanted to try out was an Amber Teething Necklace. I have been wanting one for awhile because our little guy does not do well at all with teething! However, I always forget that I
need want one until he starts teething…so I was thrilled when Mon Petit Mardi decided to send me the multicolored amber teething necklace!
When we received our necklace I put it on my little guy right away as he had been having several bad nights of sleep and some tugging of the ear going one, so I knew he was cutting another tooth.
I let him wear it all day, but I did take it off before bedtime…however he did seem to sleep better that night. The next day I put it on him again and he wasn’t tugging at his ear quite as much and that night he slept much better again! Coincidence? I don’t know, but I would like to think it is helping 🙂
I did do some research on how to tell if an amber necklace is real or not, I found several ways that you can “test” the necklace, but a lot of them were ways that would damage the necklace 🙁 I didn’t want to part with it if it is real….so I kept searching!!! Finally I found 2 “tests” that were safe 🙂 The first is really simple, it says that “Genuine Baltic amber necklaces for teething are always designed with special string that is knotted between each bead so that if the necklace should be broken, the beads will not scatter. The necklace fastens with a screw clasp that opens and closes easily” which this one does. SO that made me feel confident! The next test says “You can also test several other ways, like with salt water Amber will float but plastic and glass will sink!” SO I went and made up a bowl of salt water and put the necklace in.
As you can see it is happily floating along 🙂 So, while I am no expert on Amber Necklaces, from my experience I would say this is a GREAT necklace!! You can order your own from Mon Petit Mardi for just $24.99 and one of you will win your own just by filling out the entry form below. 🙂 I will leave this open until Tuesday August 7th. Good Luck!!
