This Works for Me: Teething

-Baltic amber necklaces (you can get them made with a magnetic clasp so they aren’t going to strangle the baby). the amber has succinic acid in it, which is a natural pain reliever. the heat of your skin warms the amber and releases the succinic acid, which absorbs through your skin. it works REALLY well – my kids each had one when they were babies, and I wear one daily to help with chronic neck pain. these necklaces are NOT for chewing on – they shouldn’t be long enough that baby can put the beads in their mouths. there are multiple safety precautions as well. (Evelyn Langdon)

-wet washcloth to chew on

– counter-pressure – use your finger, a finger brush, or a toothbrush to apply firm, gentle pressure to baby’s gums. they’ll fuss for a second or 2, but then they generally settle down because it feels so good. (Evelyn Langdon)
– gentle naturals teething drops. they were NOT recalled when the teething tablets were recalled. they have chamomile and a couple other things in them that can really help a teething child settle down and relieve their pain. (Evelyn Langdon)

-Hylands teething tablets is what we used when he was younger.  They work great too! (Vanessa Kerns)
