I grew up in a household where my mom used essential oils and natural remedies for everything. She believed in the power of medicine that comes from mother nature herself. As she always said, “Mother knows best!”. So when I became the mother of my own children, I followed in my mom’s footsteps and used natural remedies whenever I could.
My first few children were easy going. I didn’t receive much fuss from them about anything. Phases went as quickly as they came, and they blew through their milestones, even the dreaded early ones like teething and figuring out their days and nights.
My mom joked with me that I shouldn’t set the bar that high for the rest of my children, as this seemed to be a cruel joke that mother nature would play on new parents. Your first child(ren) would be calm, relaxed souls who hardly tested boundaries and pretty much made things rainbows and butterflies.
This would convince you that you should have more children, only to realize after it was too late that the next few would be “no limit soldiers who came to push boundaries”. That’s how mother nature got you.
Surely, mother nature wasn’t talking about me though, right? Wrong. In fact, shortly after my mom told me this, my husband and found out we were expecting twins. I’m sorry, what? I instantly became overwhelmed with the thought of having two of everything, but not just the material aspect… what if my mother was right after all? What if, even I, wasn’t immune to mother nature’s joke?
My twins proved my mother right and then some. From the moment they were born they were a force to be reckoned with. It was pretty evident by the fourth week that getting them on anything resembled a schedule would be difficult. By the fifth month, I had kissed my plan of anything going my way goodbye. This would be the lesson of “going with the flow” that my mother was always trying to teach me.
Six months came, and with anything in my life these days, the plan went out the window. Both of them were in the throws of teething. They were inconsolable monsters who didn’t sleep and chewed on everything, and my husband and I were become the walking dead.
How were we going to make it past this? Of course, my all-knowing mother had the answer. Why wouldn’t she? She knew everything. She told me about an amber necklace for teething. She even sent me a few links on reviews and sources on how they worked. I was desperate and would try anything.
Baltic amber is named after the region it’s located in. Conifer trees grown near the Baltic Sea are notoriously known for the amber it produces. Countries bordering the sea have long collected the sap from these trees and created these succinic acid rich stones for medicinal purposes.
Amber created from this region are known to have the highest traces of succinic acid found in the world today. This component is known for acting like a natural form of ibuprofen due to it’s anti-inflammatory agents and antioxidant rich oils. Amber can be used for headaches, backaches, teething, while pregnant, and even on teething infants.
I purchased two necklaces and put them on my twins immediately. What I liked about the amber was that it was something we could use daily, without having to administer medicine every few hours, and it was completely natural and affordable. Amber has withstood the test of time, now I was hoping it would withstand my twin’s test.
Within a few days, we were already getting more sleep than we had since the twins had started teething. I examined their gums one morning while making breakfast, and noticed that the gum inflammation had decreased significantly, thus decreasing their urge to chew on everything and drool like Niagara Falls.
Within a month, both babies had officially got their first tooth. Since the twins birth, I hardly remember a time where something had gone this smoothly. To think, at the beginning of this time in our lives, I had almost lost all hope that things would ever resemble a normal, peaceful and quiet life again.
Thanks to Baltic amber, we not only survived the teething phase with twins, but we also have successfully found something that restored peace and happiness to our lives again. Baltic amber isn’t just for the teething baby, it’s also for the chaotic household and stressed out mom. Try Baltic amber today and see what it can do for your happiness!
