Its taken me quite a while to prepare myself for this review, mainly because it takes a while to really see if it works. But, now I am finally ready to say...it DOES!

I was fortunate enough to stumble across Nikki's Etsy store, Holistic Baby Products and found the most beautiful baltic amber teething necklaces. I had been looking for a teething necklace because Mason started to seem like he was in so much pain as his tooth started to surface and I didn't want to give him baby Tylenol every four hours and just keep filling him up with that stuff. So, I wanted to try something natural and would actually help him. I spoke to a couple of my friends and got nothing but great reviews, so Nikki was nice enough to send one over for Mason to try out!
Not only does this babe look like such a babe with his necklace on, but it has some serious healing powers! Mason started teething at about 4 months, and it killed me to watch him in pain and the only thing I could do was give him some Tylenol. Considering I'm allergic to Tylenol, I was a little afraid to load him up with the stuff, plus I will always reach for more natural remedies rather than running to the medicine cabinet.
I put the necklace on Mason and he surprisingly left it on without even attempting to tug at it. I think he immediately felt at peace. The necklace is not at all a risk factor since it is completely smoothened out and cut to perfection! Of course, this necklace is not to be chewed on, though it is a healing agent that is meant to be soaked up by the skin.
It took a while to actually see a change in Mason's teething pain, but I definitely saw a change. He always used to throw tantrums while aggressively biting onto my hand. About two weeks after I put the necklace on him, the tantrums came less and less until just recently when he was aggressively biting onto something the week it took his new tooth to surface. I believe the necklace truly helped Mason through his teething, and is a much better alternative than constantly giving medication.
The description given on Nikki's Etsy page describing the necklaces goes as follows: Baltic Amber is not a stone. It is a fossil resin from ancient trees. Resin is valued for its raw organic properties. Amber is used as a healing agent in medicine and has been made into many things including jewelry. These 100% Natural Baltic Amber necklaces have never been altered. They are without any change to their natural properties, other than smoothing and cutting for your wearing pleasure. Wearing amber close to the skin is a traditional European remedy for teething that is quickly being adopted by many worldwide. Its healing properties will calm your child without having to resort to any man made drugs that can lead to irreversable damage to your childs well being. Amber gives an overall sense of balance and wellness in the body that will be observed within hours of first being worn. It is also known to be a natural antibiotic, having a positive effect on the heart, kidneys, and nervous system. These Amber necklaces are truly the best and healthiest way to provide your baby with the best life possible. *These are to be worn on the skin and not to be chewed*

And after trying the necklace on my little babe, I'm definitely all about these baltic amber necklaces and recommend them to all mama's whose kids are teething. Truly a miracle!

    We never tried the amber teething necklace and have heard mixed reviews. I think we got off pretty easy with the teething, but if there ever is a #2 baby, I think I'd give it a shot.

  2. I'd love to try this. Teething has been so mean to Ash. I literally know when he is getting a tooth because he rubs his face like a maniac, doesn't sleep and my calm baby turns fussy. I should definitely try it!

  3. I agree, desperate parents will try anything!! I found that putting the amber necklace on baby took just a little bit to start working it's magic. I don't care how it works, I just love that it does!
