Did you know Canada.. our little man sprouted his first tooth this weekend, and you know what that means - LOTS OF SCREAMING!
Our usually happy go lucky little dude has been a scream machine since the tooth arrived and can't be easily consoled, but unlike when the twins were babes, this time I was prepared! I had heard from a couple friends about the magic of Amber necklaces, but I admit I was a little skeptical. I had a chat with the owner of Momma Goose, who carries over 35 styles and colours of genuine Baltic Amber Teething necklaces and knew I had to try it for myself!
Amber is a fossilized tree resin that contains "succinic acid" which when released into the skin provided anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
This means pain relief and a reduction of inflammation in the gums.
How it works is when the amber is worn against the skin, the warmth of the skin allows the amber to release trace amounts of the succinic acid and provide relief.
We noticed a definite improvement from when he was wearing the necklace vs when he wasn't. Easy to put on and take off, cute to look at (check out all these beautiful options), and I love this safety feature - a breakaway clasp - so if it ever did get snagged it just pops apart and doesn't break either!
I look forward to continued use of the Amber necklace and it's benefits, no one wants their little one to be in pain! Did you used an Amber necklace for your little one?
