Elijah has been showing teething symptoms since before he was even 3 months old, but those symptoms were nothing compared to what he has displayed over the last two weeks. He is ordinarily a very happy baby, in fact, he is one of the calmest babies I have ever seen. But recently he has been super fussy and grouchy. He doesn’t want to nap, he cries a lot, and he almost constantly groans! Although we have been using a couple of pain relief gels on his gums, he doesn’t seem to be any happier. In an effort to help him, we searched online for better solutions. We came across a natural pain relief necklace that other moms seem to rave about. I definitely prefer natural pain remedies, so we decided to ask a friend to send us one of these necklaces for Elijah to try.
Since putting this amber necklace on Eli, he falls asleep more easily around his nap time. He hasn’t moaned or cried at all like he has in the last two weeks, and overall he just seems more content. During the last two mornings, after waking up, he lays happliy in his crib making the sweet noises that he used to make before the fussiness started. It almost seems like our Elijah is back, and we couldn’t be happier!
Here is some information to sum up what this Amber Teething jewellery does…

What is amber teething necklace?
Once an infant starts cutting teeth, it can be a painful process for infants and parents alike with remedies including everything from clean, wet washrags to pain relief pills. One of the oldest methods available is an amber teething necklace, which the infant wears around their neck helps relieve the pain associated with teething. Amber Teething Necklaces are designed and custom made for babies, all they have to do is wear it on their skin, to diminish the pain and discomfort caused by teething… Wearing baltic amber is a traditional European remedy for teething.
Amber is a natural analgesic and when worn on the skin, it releases healing oils that helps babies and young children to stay calm and more relaxed thoughout teething. Amber necklaces are a great natural remedy and can eliminate the need for over the counter drugs.
How does they work?
In the 1930’s and 40’s, European biochemists discovered that succinic acid is an amino acid created naturally in every cell of the body capable of aerobic respiration, participating in the citric acid, or Krebs cycle . This is how carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are metabolized into energy. Wearing amber may also protect us against the negative influences of electrical equipment like computers, televisions, mobile phone and microwave ovens. Worn close to the skin, the body’s heat helps release minuscule amounts of oil from the amber, which is then absorbed into the blood stream.
Baltic amber has be known to reduce acidity in the human body in a totally natural way. By having the baby wear the necklace everyday it helps reduce the common symptoms related to teething such as; redness in the cheeks, swollen gums, diaper rashes and fevers.
What is amber?
Amber is the fossilised sap from prehistoric trees that grew as much as fifty million years ago, primarily in Scandinavia and elsewhere around the Baltic Sea. Amber has been worn for centuries as a natural remedy for pain relief and to promote fast healing and boost the immune system. Its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties make it ideal as a natural (no drugs) homeopathic product for babies and children.
Who can wear it?
Amber necklaces can be worn by children aged between 3 months to 2 years of age – which is about the time baby teething stops. In fact, getting your baby used to wearing an amber necklace from a young age is a good idea as the earlier the baby starts with the necklace, the easier it becomes a part of them. They are so used to it being there, that they don’t pay attention to it by pulling on it or attempting to bite it.
What are the baby teething symptoms?
When a baby begins teething he/she can become irritable and upset. Baby will probably bite and gnaw a lot. Your baby will probably bite down and chew on anything he/she can including you. When your baby is teething he/she may not sleep well either. Some other normal baby teething symptoms are drooling, ear pulling, crying, runny nose and possibly a rash on the face/chin area and neck. Some less common possibly associated symptoms are low grade fever and diarrhea.
