It all started when he started teething big time. In March, he started cutting 4 teeth at once. 6 weeks later, he only had 2 of those teeth, and was trying to cut 4 molars along with the 2 front teeth. He was constantly chewing on his fists and was SO grouchy and whiny!
6 weeks later, it was convention time and he STILL didn't have any more teeth. I was resorting to tylenol and motrin nearly every day, and that's certainly not good for a baby! I was imagining my convention going down the drain as I dealt with this little bear, so in desperation I called my Sister Dalayna, whom I remembered talking about this cool teething necklace she had gotten for her daughter - the same age as Trey, and how impressed she was with it. She sent it to me and we got it in the middle of convention. It was seriously a lifesaver! (at least as far as my mental health in concerned!)
A week or so after convention, I decided to take it off of him because I was wondering if his good mood really had anything to do with the amber necklace, or that he had finally cut 2 of the molars. I left it off for 2 days and he was right back to his old grouchy self!
Now, what can I say? I'm a believer! Find more info about Amber Teething Necklaces below the picture.
Natural amber necklace facts:
· A natural analgesic, amber will help calm a baby without resorting to drugs.
· Amber is a fossilized resin, not a stone. It is therefore warm to the touch, as well as very comfortable and light to wear.
· Wearing Baltic amber necklaces on the skin can have a soothing and calming effect on teething babies and toddlers.
· When amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases miniscule amounts of healing oils from the amber which are then absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream.
