Although we have never had any incidents that have resulted in harm to infants, there is always a chance they will break the necklace apart and perhaps swallow one of the beads. We have gone to every extent to ensure the safety of the child, the beads are knotted in between each other, and the cord is not very strong, the clasp is a screw clasp. Amber is a natural healing product that works by being next to baby's skin. The child does not have to put the beads in or around their mouths for the amber to work. This product should be used under direct supervision of an adult. We assume no responsibility if any harm should come to the child, due to misuse of our products.
