  1. My son is 9 months and it looks like he is going to be a late teether too as his first tooth isn’t even peeking through his gums yet! I want to try the amber necklace but the potential choking hazard does weigh on my mind. I wonder if there are anklets that I could put around his ankle instead. Do you know?

      There are bracelets and anklets that people can use. I don’t know why i never went that route, but if i were going to have more children, i think i would.

  2. Ohh here comes the time! My cousin’s baby is also having quite a time going through this — she’s crying quite a lot! Interesting article – makes me can’t wait to be a dad haha!

      I can promise you one thing, being a dad is unlike anything you will ever experience in your life. There are crazy highs, and excruciating lows, but it is worth it. At least this way you get to test out the dad waters as the cousin….

    What matters is that you found products that worked for you and your baby. There are so many choices in the marketplace and since our little ones are unique, we must search for what works. I love the necklace idea… it’s a new concept to me. 🙂

      Thank you, I appreciate your comment because it is definitely hard to figure out what works best for you. One thing I have learned along the way, with 3 children, is that it never works for the next one. It totally perplexes me….

  4. So cute !!
    So sad that we don’t have children yet even been married for 6 years . I’ve been dreaming to have this moment . By the way I heard a lot about this items , I wonder if we can find it in Indonesia

    Those necklaces sound amazing! Teething is such an awful time for little ones and their parents. I was very lucky with my daughter, she would have one really bad night and the next morning a tooth would be there and there was no more trouble.

  6. I’ve never dealt with a teething baby before. I can imagine what it’s like because it’s different for every kid. My nephews were complete opposites, for one of them it was easy, for the other, it was terrible. It’s good to know as much remedies so you can see what works.

  7. We had the joy of that awful diarrhoea that gives a rash it’s not fun. I always alternated calpol and nurofen when my 3 were teething and it seemed to help. I also had a teether that could be cooled and chewed and a teething necklace which I work to keep them distracted too.

  8. Ah, yes, I remember when my twin boys started teething it was non-stop crying and yelling. I felt so bad! They say that if an adult had to go through that process, that we would not be able to withstand the pain. Luckily we are just about over that phase! On to the terrible two’s…

  9. Thankfully my daughter didn’t have a ton of troubles with teething. Although she did have other things besides that which were far worse that we had to deal with. That’s interesting all of the different things you used for diaper rash. I didn’t realize there were that many different methods for handling it.

  10. My one year old daughter has two teeth and currently in the process of having three more. At the same time. I’ve made her crochet toys and put them in the freezer they seem to work fine

      I’ve known women who freeze their breastmilk and use the mesh popsicle thing for it too. There are all kinds of tools.

    Oh goodness. I remember when my kids were teething. It was the most stressful moments of child rearing! A crabby baby during the day, and a screamer during the night. I have to read more about that amber necklace and if it would work for adult pain too.

  12. I don’t have any children myself yet but I know from having younger siblings what a nightmare teething is going to be when I do have my own.

      The tricks, tips and advice that you can get from doctors, other moms is invaluable. It won’t be that bad, a mom can get through anything.

  13. My foster mum used a baltic amber teething necklace for my foster sister and it really helped her as well. It is like it was made out of magic or something but hey we were not complaining!x x

  14. Oh those teething beeds sounds awesome. I’m currently renting a room with a family that have a baby that’s teething and boy she can use those. I’ll share these other tips with the parents too.

      Thank you for your sweet comment. I agree that it’s hard for moms now. You have to worry about everything when it comes to your children. I try to find ways to help alleviate it for those that need it. I don’t see why I can’t share what I know with others :).

  15. It is amazing how different remedies will work for different babies. I’m with you on the amber necklace issue, it sounds random but I know plenty of people who have sworn it worked for their little ones! I think each parent just needs to work out what works for them and what they feel comfortable using (and try their best to ignore all the other opinions out there!)

  16. OMG- I’m going through all of this with my 11-month old; the drooling, the fussiness, the poop, etc. I have heard good things about these necklaces though. I may have to check them out!

      Once they are through, generally the crazy will subside lol. I forgot one part about the post; after the daycare lost the first necklace, my son started having 104 degree temps, and after the 3rd trip to the ER, I went and bought a second necklace. The temps went away, it’s nuts how the necklace worked for him, stranger things have happened.
