Baltic Amber Teething Necklace
Amber teething necklaces are the latest rage. Do you know why? It’s because they work!! I prefer raw amber to the polished since it has a higher retention of succinic acid. Succinic acid is the pain relieving and anti-inflammatory component in amber which rubs off of your skin to help the symptom. The lighter/cloudy color amber usually contains the highest amount of succinic acid. For some, high amounts of succinic acid can irritate the skin, so go with something that is in the middle. Like a all yellow necklace or a raw necklace with multi-colored amber.
All Natural Wooden Teethers
When your baby’s teeth are cutting, they need something hard and firm to gnaw on to help them break through. Many plastic teethers contain toxic additives that can leech into your baby’s mouth. That is why we recommend a natural wooden teether that is coated with beeswax! Rocklovepeace teethers are made from FSC-certified cherry wood and finished with a natural beeswax. You can get a peace sign, heart, or star. They also come in a biodegradable jute bag.
This was one of my favorite tricks when my daughter was in a lot of pain. I would freeze multiple washcloths and pull them out for her to chew on. The cold helps numb the pain and it calms the gums. To keep the washcloth from unraveling in the freezer, tie a twisty around the end to hold it together and untie when you take it out. Also, use a infant organic washcloth instead of a large one. Make sure you have a waterproof bib on while they chew or it could get messy.
