Dishwasher Safe? Cleaning?
Zebra Babies Silicone Products are dishwasher safe (top rack only)
Personally I do not recommend this due the the harsh nature of the dishwasher.
washing under warm water with mild soap rinse thoroughly and hang to dry
Silicone does not mould or carry bacteria if used correctly. Always wash before wear.
Safety is our Number 1 concern when it come to our products.
Most of our products are handmade by myself, when making our necklaces and dummy clips as well as our other products quality top priority, all our items are check for quality before being packaged and sent out. Items are to be used as instructed as per packaging, not following these instruction could result in injury or worst. PLEASE READ ALL PACKAGING
Silicone jewellery was formerly called ” teething necklace, silicone teething necklace or teething jewellery “. This is no longer allowed due to the ACCC and safety guidlines.
Necklaces are for Adults and Children over the age of 3 ONLY
NEVER put necklace around baby neck
NEVER leave baby alone with necklaces or teething toys
ALWAYS check your necklace for faults before each use
IN the result your necklace breaks throw all pieces in
the bin as small pieces pose a chocking risk to small children
What age can my baby begin to wear an Amber Teething Necklace?
We suggest that bubs can begin to wear an amber necklace from 12 weeks of age. For premature bubs, we go off their adjusted age.
Are Amber Teething Necklaces comfortable for babies to wear?
Necklaces are light in weight. Baltic Amber is not actually a stone, it’s a fossilised resin and therefore not cold to touch. Most babies don’t even know they are there.
What will happen if my baby chews on it?
Amber Necklaces are designed to sit comfortably on babies collar bone but not long enough to reach over their chin and into their mouth. Amber Jewellery is designed to be worn and not chewed on or placed inside the mouth. The easiest solution is to quickly tuck the necklace under their clothing. It is likely that baby will ignore it. If not, just remove it for another day.
What size necklace should I get for my baby?
All Amber Necklaces should be between 32 – 33cm long. This is the ideal length for most babies aged 12 weeks right up to 3 years old. Teething Necklace should not be long enough that baby can pull it over their chin and into their mouth. If this is the case, baby might be a bit young and possibly try again in 6 weeks time.
Can my baby wear an Amber Necklace during sleep times?
Any product that contains small parts including amber teething jewellery should be removed whenever the child is without supervision including sleep times
Are Necklaces safe?
All has been made using the highest quality materials however babies and children should be supervised whilst wearing any kind of jewellery with small inclusions. All of our amber jewellery have individually knotted beads so that in the unlikely case it comes apart only one bead may fall off. Each is fitted with a traditional plastic clasp designed to release if excessive pressure is applied to the joint. As with all products around the home that are small enough to be swallowed, extra special care must be taken for children under 3 as they pose a CHOKING HAZARD.
Can my baby wear it in the bath or swimming?
We recommend that all amber products be removed while bathing or swimming as prolonged exposure to water may weaken the thread.
Do you recommend a necklace or bracelet?
We suggest a necklace for teething babies although the bracelets are still a suitable and common alternative. Necklaces have more beads than bracelets and therefore have a slightly larger amount of Baltic amber.
What colour should I buy?
We stock a great range of colours to suit each baby. The lighter shades tend to be bought for the girls whereas the darker shades for the boys. The mixed ones are popular choice for baby shower presents if the sex of the baby is unknown. Every amber necklace is unique and may vary slightly from the images online due to the product being in it’s natural form.
Will I receive a Certificate of Authenticity?
An Authenticity Cards are enclosed with every order.
How long should my amber jewellery last?
Each teething necklace or bracelet is specifically designed for use by infants. With the right care, it may become a treasured heirloom to pass down to loved ones.
Checking for faults and imperfection regularly is recommended
How do I care for my amber beads?
You may occasionally hand wash it in mild soapy water, rinse in fresh water and allow to air dry. Do not use harsh cleaners. You may polish your amber beads with a small amount of olive oil to retain their original shine. As they are not designed for chewing, sterilisation should not be necessary.
Can boys and girls wear them?
Absolutely, both boys and girls (equally) wear baltic amber jewellery
