Teething...

I do believe the dreaded teething word has officially struck our household... Little Miss has no longer taken to sucking on my finger, no, she wants to bite. Thankfully this has not happened during any nursing sessions yet. :-) She's whiney, chewing on her own fingers, drooling a lot. The beginning signs of teething...

I have read quite a bit, even in the midst of Infertility you-know-what, I would occupy my time by dreaming of our one day baby and read up on any and everything I possibly could. Baltic Amber Teething necklaces included.

This is the Milk and Honey Baltic Amber teething necklace I am anxiously awaiting to arrive {from Hazelaid.com} for Little Miss. I have read such fantastic success stories by those that used such teething necklaces that I too hope to be sharing a success story sometime soon!

Charles thinks it's a bunch of hooey. I disagree. We'll see!

Amber is not a “stone” but a natural resin. So as it warms with the body’s natural temperature, amber releases its healing oils (these oils contain succinic acid) which are readily absorbed into the skin and then into the bloodstream. Baltic Amber has some of the highest concentrations of succinic acid found in nature, and this is what makes it so special. Succinic acid is a natural component of plant and animal tissues, and it's presence in the human body is beneficial in many ways.

Commonly known as "teething jewelry" in Europe, Baltic amber has been a natural remedy for pain relief for hundreds of years. Baltic amber is a natural analgesic that will help relieve headaches,reduce inflammation of the throat, ear and stomach and fight irritations, infections and respiratory diseases as it dramatically improves the body’s immunity.

Makes sense to me... {No worries, the Hyland's Teething tablets are on my to get list as well!}

I also purchased one for myself. :-) I hope to share a success story from my end too over the coming weeks!

Anyone used one themselves or for their little ones? Know of someone that has used one?

Fortunately, Miss K wasn't really bothered by teething so I didn't get anything for her. We'll see with Mr. D. Just a warning that the onset of the symptoms you describe doesn't necessarily mean that teething is imminent: Miss K started the gnawing and drooling around 3 months and didn't pop her first tooth until 9 months. Mr. D will be 5 months on Sunday and we're waiting on his first; he drools even worse than Miss K did, and I swear he's going to chew my knuckle off one of these days!
