For years, I have been intrigued by amber necklaces for babies. I know they are reported to have properties that help the pain of teething for babies, but I also think the jewelry is rustic and beautiful. However, I never ended up purchasing any amber jewelry for my teething babies probably because most of my babies haven’t had a difficult time with teething. But then I had a baby with a condition that causes pain, and my interest was renewed, and Baltic Wonder graciously sent me a necklace of my choosing for little Miss Mercy.
When you have a child with a chronic condition, you are willing to do anything that may help ease their symptoms. Since amber, particularly amber from the Baltic region, contains Succinic Acid that is said to have healing properties for arthritis and inflammation, I wanted Mercy to have a necklace from there. And I especially loved the multi-colored amber necklace from Baltic Wonder – such a pretty piece of jewelry for my pretty little girl!
Mercy wears her necklace most days (in fact, she point to it on the dresser, and stands still like a little lady while I put it on her every morning!), and she definitely seems to be less fussy on the days when she has it on. I’m obviously not a doctor, and can’t make any claims to the efficacy of amber, but again, I’m willing to try it for her sake. (note: I do take the necklace off of her for naps and at night.)
We all want our little ones to be comfortable as they explore their world. Whether it be teething pain or joint pain or some other kind of pain, it’s definitely worth the money to try amber!
