I can't believe I allowed 3 months to go by without any posts. I can blame being a busy mom, but I simply have not put any effort in to my passion lately, and this shall soon change!

I've decided to post today, because I have been dealing with my daughters teething for a few weeks now and I'm ready for some helpful suggestions. This comes at a particularly difficult time because I also weaned her from breastfeeding earlier in the month, so usually I could simple bf her and everything would be dandy. That is no longer the case. She has the bottom two teeth and the top four are either breaking skin or bulging. She has started to drool, gnaw on her fingers, wakes from her sleep and acts like a stage five cling-on during the day. I have been giving her Tylenol during the nights, but really don't want to continue with giving her over the counter meds. I know they recently recalled the Highlands teething tablets, so I'm curious to see what other natural remedies there are.

I have hear of the amber teething necklaces, but there are so many options; color, lengths, etc. Which one works well, where should I buy from and has this really helped you?

Thanks in advance for any help. I promise to post more often. My mind is full of information I can't wait to share with everyone. I also have a few give-aways on the back burner! Stay tuned!

  1. My grandmother gave us an amber teething necklace when our first daughter was teething. I always thought it was yet another Cajun tradition that had been in my family for years, but then I did a little research and learned that it's actually European and has been around forever. We Cajun people like to think we invented everything:) My grandmother always told me that the necklace should be long enough to fit comfortably around baby's neck but short enough that she couldn't pull on it or put it in her mouth. I don't think that the color or design matter at all, as long as you ensure the necklace is authentic amber. I will tell you that the necklace worked for us and has been passed down through our very large family for years. Good luck and hope your baby feels better soon:)
