You probably don't remember, but I ordered a Baltic amber necklace for Harry before Easter. BEFORE EASTER. I got it yesterday. The damn thing took seven weeks to come in. It was supposed to take four. How ridiculous! I ordered it through Mama Bargains, so I can't say I recommend supporting that company. I certainly won't be shopping with them anymore.
Anyways... here's H-man modeling his newest accessory.
What a ham :)
I ordered the raw honey color. I bet some of you are wondering why I put a necklace on my little boy, right? It's not just a fashion statement, although it is pretty cute. Baltic amber is said to have homeopathic properties and relieve a number of ailments when worn.
•boost the immune system
•accelerates the natural healing process
•alleviates teething pain
•calming effect without the use of drugs
•natural pain killer (reduces or eliminates pain associated with headaches, joint stiffness, etc)
•have been known to treat discomfort linked to throat, ear and stomach irritations as well as fevers and colds.
So basically, Baltic amber is magical, haha! Not really, but I think it's pretty cool. Harry hasn't had any teeth poke through but I'm (almost) willing to be that we'll have some pearly whites within the next month. He is showing some signs of teething (mainly an insane increase in drooling) so the necklace came right in time.
Baby Orajel isn't recommended anymore so I'm hoping that between wearing the necklace and some Humphreys Teething Strips we will get through the teething phase just fine.
Just a note, the Baltic amber works by warming up against your skin and releasing natural oils, so it's best to keep the necklace tucked under onesies or t-shirts. I just had it poking out for the pictures. Babies are not supposed to chew on them, which is a common misconception.
If you're interested in ordering a necklace, Sweet Bottoms has quite a few to choose from (the lighter colors are said to be the most effective) and they ship fast and free!
