A couple of weeks ago I thought I’d better get prepared for the arrival of Baby N’s teeth and, more importantly, the pain they can cause. I ordered an adjustable toddler anklet made from raw Baltic amber from Dino-Daisy for him to wear. While I was browsing I also ordered a polished Baltic amber stretchy bracelet for me! My bracelet cost £10.50 and the anklet £8.50, plus P&P.
Baltic amber is high in succinic acid which helps to heal wounds and reduce inflammation, which is why you’ll see so many little ones wearing amber jewellery as it helps ease the pain of teething. I used to hold a chunk of amber when I was in the later stages of pregnancy as it helps combat fatigue!
Raw amber is said to contain more succinic acid than polished amber so I got raw for Baby N’s anklet. He’s been wearing it for about 2 weeks and yesterday I noticed that he is cutting his first tooth! He has seemingly had no bother at all; no crying, no red cheeks, none of the classic signs of teething. I’m sure it’s down to wearing his anklet. It’s advised that they’re not suitable for children under 36 months as the beads could be a choking hazard so obviously I’m very careful when Baby N is wearing it.
As well as amber jewellery Dino-Daisy has other gemstone jewellery and gorgeous sterling silver jewellery; I definitely think you should take a look!
