Teething is not for fun the baby and it’s certainly not fun for parents. When my baby first began teething, it was a challenge from the start. It seemed like her teething pain would come at the worst possible moments when we were out and didn’t have her teether or when I was hoping to get a nap.
One of the first things I did when my baby started to teethe was google “best teething remedies.” You would be surprised at how many remedies are out there online, ranging from standard like teething toys to some more unusual remedies that aren’t even worth repeating.
One remedy I saw showing up again and again were amber teething necklaces. Now, I had actually heard about these from a friend whose baby was sporting one around their neck, but it was a few years before I had my own baby and I didn’t think much about it. I did more research on amber teething necklaces and decided that I wanted to try them out based on the reviews of other parents.
It arrived in the mail a few days later, I followed the instructions to the letter, and a few days afterward my baby was calm and seemed relatively free of major teething pain. I was so glad that I bought an amber teething necklace, and I’d like to share a little more about that decision.
Other Remedies Were Lackluster!
There are dozens of teething remedies out there. Some work to an extent, like frozen teething toys and similar chewing remedies that put pressure on your baby’s sore gums, but they don’t actually eliminate the source of the pain symptoms, they just mask them with pressure. I wanted something that was going to remove my baby’s pain without making it so they had to be chewing on something constantly in order to get relief.
Medication Has Side Effects
While this remedy may be fine for some parents, I didn’t like the idea of giving my baby pain relievers, even the ones designed for infants. There are just too many potential side effects if you aren’t careful about the dosage, and it wasn’t something I wanted to add to my plate.
They’re Effective and Long-Lasting
The primary reason why I chose an amber teething necklace was simply how effective and long lasting they are; amber teething necklaces work through a compound called succinic acid, which is absorbed through the skin when the necklace is worn against bare skin. Succinic acid reduces inflammation, and the sore gums experienced during teething are largely due to gum inflammation. Amber teething necklaces work so well because they reduce the source of the pain, rather than mask it with painkillers or other types of teething remedies. And because of this, the relieving effects of the amber necklace is truly long-lasting. I know that I--and my baby--could not have made it through the teething stages without one.
