Teething is a stressful ordeal for everyone involved, but mostly for your little one. The constant drooling, irritability, lack of sleep, and pain…breaks my heart just thinking about it. Being a “crunchy” family we try searching for natural ways to heal and protect our family before turning to western medicine. And while teething toys provide some comfort, sometimes your baby just needs total relief. So with our little teethers we like to use Baltic Amber.
When warmed against the skin, Amber releases a natural analgesic called succinic acid that is absorbed through the skin and then enters your blood stream. For centuries its healing properties have been used to help both children and adults. Today it is most commonly used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, joint and dental pain, headaches, and teething.
I truly believe in the soothing properties of Baltic Amber. I have seen results first hand. Unfortunately there are counterfeiters that try to pass off glass or plastic as real Amber. There are a few tests that you can perform at home without damaging your Amber. You can read about how to test for imitations in my next post Baltic Amber: Real or Fake? Toogli's Baltic Amber passed the test!
With Toogli you are guaranteed to receive a genuine product of high quality. They prove this with their Letter of Authenticity that states the Amber they sell is 100% genuine Baltic amber that has been independently tested and meets the standards set forth by the International Amber Association.
Another reason to choose Toogli when purchasing Amber is their no-hassle, money back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied, Toogli will not only refund your money, they will cover shipping both ways! So you have absolutely nothing to lose.
Are Amber necklaces safe?
The answer is, Absolutely! You can use it as a necklace or an anklet. I prefer to wrap the necklace twice around my daughter’s ankle and if needed securing it with a loose fitting sock. Either way, to minimize the threat of choking, it should definitely be removed when the baby is sleeping. Safety can also be ensured by using it only when the baby is active and under parental supervision. As a further precaution to remove amber teething choking hazard, this particular necklace is held in place by a screw clasp that breaks away when accidentally pulled or tugged by the baby.
