Teething. Who would have ever thought that I would have used that word so many times during the boys' babyhood and beyond. I actually used that word very recently because D just got his 2 year molars and the Captain is working on his 6 year molars. Throughout their babyhood, if something was off…whether it be a runny nose, diarrhea, or just a bit of crankiness, teething always came up in the "could it be this?" list.
I didn't try amber teething necklaces with the Captain when he was a baby. It probably would have helped with his fussiness. Baltic amber, which is fossilized sap that is warm to the touch, is a natural remedy for pain relief. It has also been known to heal wounds more quickly, ease muscle pains, reduce inflammation of the ears, throat, and stomach, help with respiratory disease, colic, acid reflux, eczema, and a number of other things. The Captain wears his amber/hazelwood necklace to pre-k every day, and I think it has worked well for his school anxiety.
D wore a teething necklace from about 6 months and his teething pain never seemed to be as big of a deal as the Captain's. I knew that I wanted to get a teething necklace for Baby Brother at some point, but since babies don't generally start teething until 6-12 months, I know that we have some time. The sweet people at Teething Tots sent us a raw amber necklace to review, and since Baby Brother is still a bit young, I had D try it on and model for us:
