Amber teething necklace

I know many of you have seen Trey in his fancy little amber necklace and wondered what on earth has gotten into his momma!
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.

· Amber’s anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are also recognized by allopathic medicine. In Austria, Switzerland and Germany, you will find amber teething necklaces sold in local pharmacies

Phew, I'm glad you cleared that up. I was *so* worried about how Trey would grow up, having worn a necklace. Hehe.

I did get wierd looks from people at convention when Jessi wore it, but it's not like I could explain it to everybody!

It is a really great thing though.
