if any mummys aren't sure what an amber teething necklace is .. heres some info i found
Amber teething necklace is a traditional baby teething remedy. A natural analgesic, amber used for centuries in Europe. Wearing Baltic amber close to the skin will help calm a baby without resorting to drugs. Natural anti-inflamitory and pain relieving properties of baltic amber are perfect to soothe teething babies.
Many parents are looking for a homeopathic product that provides relief for teething symptoms. Baltic Amber teething necklaces are the ideal solution when you choose to care for your baby in a natural way.
Amber necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing as amber exhibits its pain relieving qualities when worn on the skin. Please use caution and supervise your child while using the necklace!
In Europe, amber, a natural analgesic, is commonly worn by babies and young children to help with teething difficulties. The amber is said to reduce inflammation caused by teething when worn close to the skin and promote a stronger immunity to common infection as well as assisting general well-being.
suitable from about 3-4 months of age. The miseries of teething can often continue for 2 years or more, and we can tell you from our experience it's never too late for your child to start wearing this necklace!
How does it work?
Amber should be worn on the skin. Amber teething necklaces relieve the pain of teething in babies and toddlers when the necklace lays against the skin during the day. Baby necklace is not for chewing or wearing at night! (MY SON WEARS HIS ROUND HIS ANKLE UNDER A SLEEP SUIT AT NIGHT ITS MORE EFFECTIVE IF ITS ON 24/7)
The string is knotted between each bead so should the necklace break (which it should if necessary), all of the beads will not be scattered.

my son is teething badly second time around ..
first time round teething gel,gripe water (he gets a lot of trapped wind cuz of it) and calpol helped.
however this time round that wasn't working as effectively so now we've got him an amber teething necklace ... its a miracle!
however its not helped with his wind so he's still having gripe water.

Our son loves frozen fruit. He also likes frozen wash clothes, ice cubes, frozen bagels, cold carrots. We also used all natural teething tablets. The most helpful for my son was the frozen fruit. Feels good and tastes good too :) Good luck!

I found that Motrin works, and the teeth tablets work really well.. My son got his first tooth when he was just barely 5 months old. He now has 7 teeth and is 9 months old. You just have to be patient.
