Saving My Sanity with Amber Teething Necklaces

By Jenn Sanders. Feb. 9, 2018

 

Motherhood is a like a swift slap in the face. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really awesome
that I have a precious little baby to cuddle with and love on anytime I want, but uh … this
isn’t easy.

If you’ve been through the sleepless nights, colic, and constant feedings, you probably
feel like a champion. But then, teething comes into play, and it’s a whole new ball game.
At least, that’s how I felt.

Let me tell you – I don’t know if my kid is just going to be whiny, but she was
miserable. She slept maybe three hours straight at night. She wouldn’t eat any solid
foods, and when I nursed her, I felt like I was trying to breastfeed a piranha who was
hungry. OUCH.

Of course, there was the incessant crying. She wasn’t happy doing anything for very
long. Even holding her and jumping up and down wouldn’t calm her. She would just start
crying.

The doctor recommended that I give her Tylenol and Motrin. I’m pretty sure that’s what
he tells everyone for no matter what the problem is…

This blanket remedy wasn’t going to work for me, though. I needed something besides
drugging my kid with pain relievers every day.

Thank God for mommy friends. I told my friend how I was losing my sanity with Bella. I
literally felt like I was going insane from the lack of sleep, gashes on my nips, and
constant screams and crying on the daily.

I felt like a horrible mother for not just dealing with it (this too shall pass?), but really,
it’s torture.

My friend told me about Baltic amber teething necklaces. All you have to do is
put it on your baby (around the neck or wrist) and the heat from your baby’s body warms the necklace, causing it to release oils that contain succinic acid, which in turn gets absorbed by the skin. Since skin is so permeable, it goes right into the bloodstream to do its magic.

What’s awesome is that succinic acid is completely natural. It’s found in foods such as
barley, bread, cheese, and milk. Our metabolism and immune system need it for proper
functioning. The health benefits are amazing, though. It can relieve pain, inflammation,
arthritis, and even treat colds and the flu. For babies, it can help with the teething pain,
swollen gums, and reduce the fever.

One thing that concerned me was the possible choking hazard to my little one. After all,
we are talking about a necklace around a baby’s neck. I called my friend and asked her
about the danger I perceived.

She told me to look for baltic amber necklaces that were knotted individually between
beads. Made sense. If they break, beads don’t scatter everywhere and end up in my
daughter’s nose, mouth, or ears. She also mentioned to find one with a clasp that
maintains its integrity and doesn’t break away.

Before I ordered one I googled when a baby shouldn’t wear a Baltic amber
necklace and found two things. First, always take them off at bedtime. What I did was
wrap it around my daughter’s ankle at night. Two, take it off when swimming in a public
pool or one with chlorine. It can ruin the efficacy of the succinic acid.

So I took the plunge and ordered one online. As soon as I received it I put it on my
daughter. It only took a week before I noticed a difference. Of course, I thought that
maybe it was because she had already cut the latest tooth. But I kept the necklace on her,
and we haven’t had any issues since we started it. YES! I would even be willing to say
that the amber teething necklace treats insanity because I know that it’s improved my
mental health.

For anyone who wants to try it, don’t buy just any amber teething necklace, get a Baltic
one. The amber from the Baltic areas of the country are much better and have a higher
potency of the Succinic Acid. Baltic Wonder, found at www.balticwonder.com/. These necklaces made from amber beads sourced from Lithuania. They even send a certificate of authenticity.

Hopefully, my information about Baltic amber teething necklace has been able to help
your sanity.

Teething is no joke.
