HELPFUL HINTS: SEVERE TEETHING PAIN

Both of my girls suffer with severe teething pain.

Severe teething pain symptoms:
Fever higher than 100 degrees
Consistent drooling
diaper rash (from acid in mouth and diarrhea)
vomiting (from acid in mouth)
diarrhea (from acid in mouth)
inability to sleep
inability to eat


Add all of those together and you pretty much have one very sick baby and one stressed out mama. I am NO PRO, but after many countless hours of dealing with this sort of teething, I have come up with a few ideas rather than the regular ol' baby orajel and Tylenol. Most of the time babies scream at the taste of orajel because it "burns" so to speak. Baby Tylenol is becoming obsolete, so help me help this poor baby!

Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces











I came across this necklace while doing my cloth diapering research (not sure how, but I did). This is a necklace made for infants, toddlers, children and adults, created with 100 % Natural Baltic Amber . When worn under supervision (to prevent choking, please do not let baby go to sleep with this on), babies body temperature activates the Succinic Acid found in amber and seeps through the skin. Succinic Acid has been proven to do the following:

act as an analgesic to reduce teething pain/arthritis pain
boost immunity
act as an anti-inflammatory
act as an anti-fever remedy and expectorant

This little tiny necklace is so light weight, so soft and from a personal review, seems to work. I keep it on Aubrey during her most painful times and it seems to CLEARLY help reduce her symptoms. That's with no other interventions such as Tylenol or baby orajel. I love THIS. There are TONS online to purchase and LOTS more information, just google: Baltic amber teething necklace.


Mommy teething necklaces (no it's not for mommy to teeth on)












So I came across this while reading online about nursing. This is a necklace worn on mommy. It's pretty huh? They come in LOTS of colors! Looks like stone huh? NOPE. It's made out of a special rubber designed for your teething baby. HOW CLEVER! While holding baby, she has something to teeth on. While nursing baby, she has something to play with instead of your hair. This thing is so cool!

I thought these two ideas were pretty neat, so I had to share. Of course I have many more up my sleeve, but don't forget this absolutely natural teething remedy:
Diversions! Take your baby for a walk outside to get some fresh air! Give your baby a warm bath. Give your baby a new toy or turn on some fun music.

In the middle of the night: well we chose to be parents, so I get up and let my selfishness go and do everything in my power to sooth my baby. I've been in labor, so I know what pain is, and teething must be at least that painful.
