As most of you know, I have a beautiful 5 month old little boy. My poor little guy started teething right around 3 months :( He was chewing on everything and crying in pain. It makes for one sad mommy! I had a play date with a friend of mine and her little guy was wearing a necklace. I inquired about it and it turns out, he was wearing a teething necklace! No, not a necklace to chew on, but a necklace made of Amber. She swore it helped her 2 sons make it through teething with ease! She sent me a link to Inspired by Finn, where she purchased her son's teething necklace. What did I have to lose?! I went to their site to check out their Baltic Amber Necklaces for youth. Here's what I learned!
When baltic amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. These oils contain succinic acid and are absorbed into the skin. Baltic amber contains analgesic properties and helps take the edge off of many types of discomfort associated with dental issues, headaches, joint pain, etc. Commonly known as "teething jewelry," baltic amber has been a natural and traditional European remedy for teething discomfort for hundreds of years.
Succinic acid is the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory component of the Baltic Amber. If you want to make sure you are getting the necklace that is the most effective, you can choose a color that contains more succinic acid than other colors and/or you can choose a necklace made of raw amber beads. Generally speaking, the lighter the color of amber the more succinic acid it contains. The lightest colors contain up to three times more than the darkest color.
I chose the Lemonade Necklace for Gavin because it is raw amber and light in color, so contains more succinic acid. We put it on him every morning and take it off at night. He has 2 teeth and you would NEVER know he got them! He hardly fusses at all! He is on HAPPY, HAPPY baby! Thank you, Inspired by Finn! What an awesome and helpful product! I am recommending your necklaces to ALL my readers as well as all my personal friends and family!
