I get asked quite frequently about the necklaces the boys wear.
They are amber necklaces & they are for teething relief.
With 3 boys all teething at the same time I felt like I was spending a small fortune on medications, homeopathic & not. So we decided to give these a try, for $5 each we really couldn't go wrong.
They actually work quite well. They do not solve the more severe teething pain but they keep the fussy, irritable & restlessness at bay. Like I mentioned in a previous post, the boys did cut their first set of molars & we didn't even realize it. That has not been the case with eye teeth though.
For the times the amber isn't quite enough I usually turn to Camilia, a homeopathic remedy that has never failed us.
We used teething tabs when the boys were still tiny but they quit being effective for us sometime between 9 months & a year old.
Acetaminophen has never been effective for the boys for pain, just fevers.
For instances like their eye teeth we have given ibeprofin for swelling & pain & it does the trick.
Overall though, we give much less medication :o)
If you've got little ones that are teething I highly recommend hitting up eBay for an amber necklace!!!
