How to Reduce Teething Symptoms Naturally With an Amber Teething Necklace
When my baby started teething, I thought there was something seriously wrong with her. She had the fever, drooling, lack of appetite, and moodiness that you either heard about or know all too well since you’re going through it too.
I took her to the doctor immediately when the symptoms started, and I was told to give her Tylenol and Motrin along with the advice, “This too shall pass.” I didn’t really like that answer, and really needed to find a better solution.
I did a Google search for natural remedies for teething. I saw some moms talking about amber teething necklaces, and then remember that one of my friends has one around her baby’s neck every day. I decided to give her a call.
About Amber Teething Necklaces
When I called my friend Jessica to ask her about a baby amber necklace for teething, she was excited to tell me all about it. She said that she was so happy she found them for her baby when he was teething.
Europeans and Middle Easterners have been using them for centuries. Not only did they use it to help their babies with teething, but they used it to help with other illnesses and even diseases. Amber has immune boosting properties and can help treat everything from colds to arthritis. I couldn’t believe it!
I decided to take this bit of information and research amber some more. Apparently, amber has Succinic Acid in it. This treatment oil is all natural and found in many foods such as milk, cheese, whole wheat bread, barley, and more. When people wear amber against their skin, the body heat warms it, which releases Succinic Acid onto the skin. It’s then absorbed into the bloodstream.
Some of the people online talking about amber necklaces said that they didn’t have as good of an experience with them, but also stated that they bought their necklaces for a cheap price on an unknown website. Other moms said that some sellers do not have authentic amber beads when they make their necklaces, so they don’t have any Succinic Acid in them.
The Baltic areas of the world have the best amber. Lithuania is a country in the Baltic area and is known for their high quality, authentic amber. If you can find a seller, like Baltic Wonder that sources their amber from Lithuania, you will likely have as good of an experience as I did. You want a high concentration of Succinic Acid in the amber to make sure it’s effective.
My Experience With Amber Teething Necklaces
When I received my amber necklaces, I put them on myself and my baby. It was about three days later that I started to see a difference in the way my baby was acting. Her fever was gone, she was sleeping through the night and eating so much better than before the necklace.
As for me, I was feeling more energized and was sleeping better. This wasn’t just because my baby was sleeping through the night, but because I was sleeping much more deeply than I was before.
I think there are many health benefits of amber for baby and myself. I am going to continue using it, and I hope this helps other moms out there who need an all-natural teething remedy.
