Is Baltic amber safe for my baby?

Concerns have been raised about amber teething necklaces representing a choking hazard. The main concern relates to the beads and clasps which can become detached and increase the risk of a child choking on them. There are also inherent strangulation hazards associated with having any type of cord placed around a child’s, and especially a baby’s, neck.
