Gumstone teether

How many of you have read about amber teething necklaces and thought there is no way I am spending that kind of money on a necklace, I am sure it wouldn't work? Well I would like you to re-think that thought. I myself thought there is no way that a necklace-stone can make a difference  I first thought why would I have my baby chew on a necklace? He could choke? I'm sure many of you that don't know what these are hear teething necklace and think they would chew on it. Well trust me they are not intended for that. AND THEY WORK!

These necklaces are so beautiful and they are manly enough for my boy to sport. I swear one day after he started wearing his necklace he stopped drooling! I mean we had to have bibs on him all day long and change them every hour. I no longer have to do that and he does not seem to chew on everything he gets in his hands now. Don't get me wrong he still sticks everything in his mouth but it doesn't seem to be for chewing like his teeth hurt. I would definitively recommend for any baby to wear these. Please do read the information about the necklaces in Gumstone's Etsy shop.

Dear mum and dad, amber teething jewelry is made for wearing not chewing. As with anything else children should be supervised at all times when wearing jewelry and it has to be removed whenever a child is sleeping or unattended! 

An amber teething necklace is made from Genuine Baltic amber, an organic substance-fossil resin that was produced under natural conditions at least 45 million years ago. The unique substance of amber has anti-inflammatory properties which can be absorbed when it is worn against the skin. Hence, teething necklaces which soothe a child naturally when he or she suffers from teething pain.

The actual practice of making amber amulets for children and adults is ancient history. Traditionally, amulets were carved into various shapes and were worn to ward off evil spirits – or just plain bad luck. It’s also a very strong possibility that because these amulets also reduced inflammation and discomfort for their wearers.

Currently, there are two different thoughts as to why wearing amber on the skin can have soothing and calming effects on teething children. One thought suggests that when amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases miniscule amounts of healing oils from amber which are then absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. The other theory is based on scientific findings which have shown that amber is electromagnetically alive and produces significant amounts of organic, purely natural energy.

I am very impressed and I will continue to use this necklace on my baby boy and probably on future children. I also would like to mention that you can put this on as an anklet and then put a sock over it so they don't even know that its there. I had to do this a few times when i noticed he really wouldn't stop playing with it. Would you like to win one of these awesome necklaces? Enter below!
