SweetPea has been getting her two year old molars, and although slobber and crying are super fun, I had to find another way to help her through this.
SweetPea's teeth have always come in pairs and her molars have been no different. And although I was sceptic of Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces in the past, I recently received the recent opportunity to let SweetPea try them out. So I figured I would give it another go.
Succinic acid is a naturally occurring component in amber that makes it so effective. Succinic acid is a natural pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and a central nervous system calmer. It is so effective on babies and small children because it simultaneously eases their pain while also having a strong soothing effect on their nervous system – all with zero side effects!
The beads are meant to be worn against baby’s skin, not chewed, and are worn at a short length so that baby cannot easily grab and pull at the necklaces. The necklaces are meant to break if pulled too tight, to prevent choking, but beads are individually knotted so they don’t all fall from the necklace. While it’s recommended that children don’t wear them at night, a necklace can be wrapped around an ankle and covered with a sock to keep it warmed against baby’s skin, and still effective while they sleep.
SweetPea loved wearing her necklace and I felt it truly did help.
