Amber Teething Necklaces

When I was pregnant with C, I decided to try out the amber teething necklaces.  I hadn't heard of them until K was older, thus why I didn't try it with him.  I started putting it on her fairly early, both because K started teething early (first teeth at 4 months), and to get her used to wearing it.  At 9 months, she still doesn't have teeth, but is teething, and the necklace really seems to help.  With K I'd relied a lot on Hyland's Teething Tablets, which are wonderful.  However, they have lactose in them, and C has a dairy intolerance, so they make her sick.  Once her teeth start coming through we'll see just how much the amber helps, but as of right now, I think it's going to help her quite a bit.  So far she's not needed anything other than the amber necklace and the occasional wet cloth to chew.

  1. Thanks for the tip! We've used the tablets with both kids, but it's nice to know of an alternative.
