I don't know if you are like me, but I hate to take medicine. I really do. I have no reason why I hate it, I just do. This has trickled down to me as a mother. I avoid giving Liza medicine unless I really have to.
If you're a parent, then you know how much teething sucks. These poor babies are in this constant state of misery! Their gums are swollen and razor sharp teeth are cutting them. If I gave Liza Tylenol every time I knew she was teething then she wouldn't have a very good liver.
I have never tried teething tablets because they were recalled once when Liza was younger and I just cannot bring myself to buy them now. Thankfully, I came across this necklace and it has been a life saver!
Liza has worn this Baltic Amber necklace for about a year now, but I wish I had bought it sooner.
|I just love this kid!|
It is not a necklace that your baby can chew on. That's not how it helps the teething pain.
The Amber beads are worn against skin and the warmth of your baby's skin causes the beads to release trace amounts of healing oils. These natural oils are used more commonly in other parts of the world and they can help ease teething pain and boost your immune system.
Check out this page for a lot more detailed information. Inspired by Finn is the most reputable place to find the necklaces. Apparently, there are a lot of fakes on the market. If you are in my area, check out Bellani Maternity. It is an awesome store and they carry neat stuff that Babies R Us doesn't. Like these necklaces and cloth diapers!
I really do believe that Liza's necklace has helped to ease her teething pain. I give her much less tylenol than I did before she started to wear it.
If a baby wearing a necklace makes you nervous, then you can always wrap it around an ankle and cover it with a sock. Same benifits, but out of reach.
Well, naptime is over so I have to run.
UPDATE: Boys can wear these too and adults!!! Check out the link to the website that I wrote about. There is tons of information there.
