The theory is that the heat of the body releases the healing properties in the amber which helps to soothe the pain from teething. Mr. SPS is very scientific and skeptical, but all my natural momma friends swear by it so we wanted to give it a shot. If nothing else, the necklace looks super cute on him, don't you think? (Those are beets on his face, not scratches.)
When trying to decide between a necklace and a bracelet, I read that the amber works best closer to the source of the pain. D wears his necklace during the day, but at night I wrap it twice around his ankle since it's safely tucked into his pajamas.
My research also suggested amber in the color closest to the person's natural pigmentation, which wasn't hard to find for D through Bouncy Baby Boutique. His jewelry shipped fast (which is important if you are in a hurry to relieve teething pain) and it was packaged with instructions for care.
We started wearing the amber on him after his first two teeth were already in. I have noticed a huge difference in his next few teeth coming through. I haven't had to give him as much ibuprofen this time and he is sleeping better. He is calmer and less clingy during the day, too. Is this a coincidence or the effect of the amber? It certainly doesn't hurt to have him in his cute accessory just in case!
