When you’re a busy mom with an active lifestyle, you already have enough to juggle. Every need of a tiny human being sits on your “to do” list. For even the most streamlined and organized among us, those ever-changing needs can sometimes leave us feeling like we are in an endless cycle of stockpiling stuff to deal with the latest developmental phase.
It seems that baby and childhood products are designed to be what our family jokingly calls “uni-taskers;” items suited only to a single purpose, taking up valuable cash flow and storage space for a highly specified task. But there is one product we have found that breaks that pattern.
Generally marketed solely for treatment of teething symptoms, the baltic amber baby teething necklace is beautifully versatile. Even in its target market, the teething necklace wins the day for simplicity. Where other remedies only treat singular symptoms (analgesics stop pain, anti-inflammatories address swelling, teething chew toys provide soothing pressure), all require a combination approach to see improvement.
The beads of Baltic amber effectively manage all of the complaints of a teething child. Pain is controlled, swelling is reduced, and the accompanying irritability, drooling, and sleep disruptions return to a more normalized pattern. Instead of 2 medications and multiple toys to be carried, cleaned, measured, and scheduled carefully, one wearable solution replaces all of it.
But, wait! There’s more! The old-time television promotions would love this product, because there truly is so much “more” to it. The same process that soothes every teething symptom in a growing child is useful any time your little one experiences pain or inflammation.
Whether it is the inflamed respiratory tissues causing coughing and throat pain, a knot on their arm or leg from the hazards of learning to walk, or the generalized discomfort from a viral or bacterial infection, wearing a Baltic amber teething necklace brings relief.
How does a teething necklace do it all? It starts with the natural properties of the Baltic amber. This fossilized amber found in the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania has a uniquely high concentration of succinic acid. This is the same acid produced in smaller quantities by the human body, which acts as both an analgesic and an anti-inflammatory. Essentially, succinic acid is able to replace both forms of synthetic medication in your cabinet.
When certified Baltic amber is worn against the skin, the body’s warmth releases the succinic acid. It is then absorbed through your little one’s skin, taken up by the blood stream, and goes to work soothing the swollen gums and pain of teething or the painful, swollen symptoms of a myriad of childhood ills. Unlike other analgesics or anti-inflammatories, though, there is no need for dosing concerns with this constant delivery of succinic acid. It is not stored in human tissues, so is simply absorbed, delivered, used, and eliminated.
This one simple, naturally beautiful, wearable piece will easily become your go-to treatment throughout your child’s growth and development. It can even be used by the grown-ups in your household! What is a necklace to a small child can easily be made into a bracelet or anklet for an adult, delivering the same steady stream of soothing relief from pain and swelling.
Caring for the needs of your teething and growing baby doesn’t have to be an overwhelming process of purchase, use up, repeat or of purchase, use once, store. The Baltic amber teething necklace offers an easy-to-use, easy-to-store, safe, and reusable solution to a multitude of the most common growing pains.
