Momma Goose Baby Amber Teething Necklace: review and giveaway

Teething was not a problem with my younger two.  Or at least not that I remember.  However, Carlyn is noticeably grumpier at times with her new teeth poking their way through her gums.  It might just be more noticeable because she is such a happy baby otherwise.  

We have been using a few more natural remedies for her teething pain.  Frozen wash cloths, frozen teething toys and natural teething gel are a few things we are using.  Recently, we received a baby amber teething necklace courtesy of Momma Goose to try.

Momma Goose carries baby teething necklaces in over 30 different color combinations.  They come in two sizes {small (11 inches) or medium (13 inches)} for baby, 15 inch necklaces for children and 18 inch necklaces for adults.  Infant sized baltic amber teething bracelets (5.5 inches) are also available.  

Amber is fossilized tree resin that contains succinic acid which is believed to provide anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that help with teething pain.

After wearing the necklace for a week I have noticed a difference in Carlyn's mood.  Usually, she gets grumpy in the evening, but since wearing the necklace she seems to be a bit better.  It certainly is not the cure-all for teething pain, but it does help and it's a great alternative to medicine and Benzocaine (the active ingredient in Orajel and other teething gels).

So, you might have asked "What is the necklace doing on her foot?"  The teething necklace is more effective when worn closer to the site of the pain, but I'm horrible about remembering to take it off before she naps.  When worn on the foot it is much easier to take it off after she has fallen asleep.  It is suggested that the necklace be removed when baby is sleeping or unsupervised.

You can find Momma Goose online, on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.
