Slow the Teething Woes
I have very vivid memories of when my first baby was teething...and they aren't exactly pleasant.
One evening in particular, I found myself rushing back to The Baby Cubby in desperation. I was willing to try just about anything to soothe my poor baby who seemed to be cutting every single tooth all at once! I left armed with a Canyon Leaf amber teething necklace, and I dare say it was the miracle worker I was looking for!
Amber is 45-million-year-old fossilized tree resin that possesses anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties from an element called Succinic Acid. It also stimulates the thyroid glands, which can control drooling. If you've had a teething baby, you know there's a lot of drool involved!
If you're not keen about your baby wearing a necklace, you can choose the bracelet option for their wrist or their ankle.
Whether or not to use a necklace or a bracelet is a personal preference. Both are meant to be equally effective! If you're concerned about the necklaces being a choking hazard, rest assured that the necklace is designed to break with 15 lbs of pressure. Additionally, the string is knotted after each bead, so should it break, tiny beads won't scatter all over.
As far as the colors go, all amber is created equal in nature. No matter if it's dark or light, it will provide healing properties.
In terms of fit, necklaces should fit snug enough that your child can't lift it over their chin into their mouths, but not so tight that it's uncomfortable. You can use a string to measure your baby's neck, and add two inches or so to determine what size you need.
And here's an added bonus: amber necklaces are not just for kids! Adults can also reap the healing benefits of amber. It helps relieve all kinds of ailments, including headaches, asthma, arthritis and so much more.
