I thought about not doing this post because I think topics like this can be controversial and I don't want to steer up negative conversations. Anyways this is solely my opinion and how well it has worked for us.
I decided to give the Amber Teething Bracelet a try with Crew. I have heard many GREAT things about it and I am only going to share how well it has worked for us and you can decide if this is something that you want to try with your baby.
Crew has been wearing his for 3 weeks and since than I have not given him Tylenol. He has gotten 2 molars and is currently getting the other two molars and another 2 bottom teeth. Before wearing this bracelet he would CRY nonstop, he would not sleep through the night if he was teething, and I was giving him Tylenol often to help ease the pain. NOW I have a HAPPY baby that sleeps and doesn't show that he is in pain with his teeth. It has amazed me because I really didn't think that it would work, but for Crew it has.
My advice is do what you think is best for your baby and trust what your mommy heart says...it will guide you in the direction to go!
Here is a brief description of what the Amber Bracelet is:
WHAT IS AMBER TEETHING BRACELET?
A Baltic amber teething bracelet is made for wearing (not chewing) when a baby is teething. This can be worn alone or paired with a Baltic Amber Teething Necklace. The warmth from the skin releases the active ingredient in the Baltic amber, succinic acid. Recent scientific research has proved that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body. It improves immunity and the balance of acids when absorbed into the bloodstream; it stimulates the thyroid glands to help reduce drooling and soothes red inflamed cheeks. Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are recognized by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic, which will help to relieve teething pain and calm a baby without resorting to drugs. The skin's warmth releases healing oils from the amber, a resin, which is absorbed into the bloodstream.
