Fan Photo Friday: Baltic Amber Jewelry

Friday, July 6th, 2012

Ready to see some adorable babies sporting their Baltic Amber Jewelry? And hear first hand experiences from parents just like you about the effectiveness of Amber? Read on!

Meet sweet 4 month old baby girl Natiley. She has been wearing her Amber necklace for the past month and her parents definitely notice a difference if she doesn’t wear her necklace.

Meet cutie pie Elena. This picture was taken at the Great Cloth Diaper Change at Mom’s Milk Boutique on 4.23.2011 when she was 9 months old. It was then and there that her parents purchased a Baltic Amber Necklace. They put it on Elena at her first signs of drool and fussiness. They report that it helped instantly with both!  In fact they didn’t even realize when she cut her first 2 teeth!  Even now as she approaches two years old she still wears her Amber necklace and misses it when it’s not on.

This is little Brandon at 6 months enjoying a silly moment during Tummy Time with his Baltic Amber necklace!! His mom says that she finds if he’s getting consistently fussy all she has to do is put his necklace on for a couple days and his mood is noticeably different. While he’s pretty much a perfect baby as it is, any help is welcomed!

Meet Jack at 2.5 months old. His sweet smile is rather contagious! His mom says he’s just an overall happier baby with his Amber necklace on!

Meet Sara’s children. Sara shares, “My son always had a horrible time teething. We got him his necklace just in time for his 2 yr molars and what a huge difference it made. He only had a day or two where he needed Tylenol!  Extraordinary product!” She goes on to say that, “My daughter has been wearing her necklace since she was 4 weeks old. She got her first 2 teeth at 4 months. The first one came through without me even knowing she was teething. She has had no pain with teething!” I love hearing such rave review for Amber!

Here’s Ronan, age 10 months, expressing his opinion on bedtime. His necklace seems to help him deal with discomfort from teething and mosquito bites, though apparently doesn’t ease the pain of going to bed. 🙂

*Please note that Mom’s Milk Boutique recommends that jewelry should be removed whenever the child is sleeping or unattended by an adult.

This adorable, smiling baby is Connor. He’s wearing his Baltic Amber necklace from Mom’s Milk Boutique at 9 months old. He will be 1 next week, on 7/11 (Happy FIRST Birthday Connor) and already has 6 teeth! The necklace helped out a ton with teething. Mom says that he didn’t cry much or fuss, and that she usually didn’t know a tooth was coming through until she’d see it. Even while cutting teeth, he was just his normal happy self.

This is Jolene’s 3 month old baby girl showing off her Amber jewelry!

Bennett, at age 8 months, loves his Baltic Amber! He reports that he’s less fussy and sleeps better at night! He thinks he looks nice in his necklace too. His momma couldn’t agree more!

Meet little Maddie at 8 months old.  Moms says “We love that her Baltic Amber necklace has helped make teething easier. Plus she gets compliments all the time about her cute jewelry!”.

And here’s my little guy at 14 months wearing not one, but TWO amber necklaces while enjoying some hummus at a picnic. We have enjoyed the healing properties of Amber in our family for several years now. Even I wear one on a daily basis.  

Thanks to everyone who shared their Baltic Amber photos and success stories with us! This week’s winner of the 25 Milk Miles is Connor in honor of his FIRST birthday! Maybe his mama can get him something a little extra special for his birthday from Mom’s Milk Boutique with her extra milk miles!

Alright, next week’s Fan Photo Friday assignment is for all you crafty mamas! I adore anything hand made and would love to see something YOU have made! If you knit, sew, woodwork, paint, make jewelry, blow glass, or do some other craft I have never even heard of, I want to see your work! Send a photo of something you made to by midnight CST Thursday, July 12. Then on Friday July 13 we will showcase the many talents of our Mom’s Milk Boutique mamas! 🙂 Don’t forget that the winner gets 25 Milk Miles!

Alternative Comfort Measures for Teething Baby

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Raise your hand if you have a teething baby! I do! Teething can definitely be hard on the whole family due to sleepless nights and an unhappy baby. Some of the signs/symptoms of teething include:

  • excessive drooling
  • chewing, biting, gnawing objects
  • excessive fussiness
  • low grade fever
  • loose stools
  • vomiting
  • disrupted sleep
  • increase in breastfeeding/comfort nursing
  • decrease in appetite
  • red, inflamed/swollen gums
  • diaper rash

Caring for a teething baby is certainly challenging as it may take some experimenting to find what comfort measures are effective for your baby. Also what works one day, may not work the next. Here are 3 alternative ideas to provide comfort for a teething baby:

  • Amber teething necklace – you may have seen babies (or mamas) wearing Amber necklaces and wondered if they were just a fashionable trend? While babies do look incredibly adorable in them, amber necklaces actually hold healing properties. Wearing amber can help restore energy, provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, and help maintain overall wellness. How can a necklace do that? Baltic Amber is a fossilized tree resin that has a high concentration of succinic acid which is a powerful anti-oxidant that can protect and heal our body. Although these are called teething necklaces, they don’t actually go into baby’s mouth. Rather succinic acid gets absorbed into the skin through contact. Some parents are concerned about the safety of amber teething necklaces. While adult supervision while baby wears necklace is strongly recommended, the necklaces are designed with these key safety features: 1) The thread is knotted after each bead so if the strand should break, loose beads will not scatter everywhere and 2) the clasp is designed and tested to release if excessive force is applied to the necklace.

  • Breast Milk Popsicle – Often cold objects help soothe inflamed gums. You could just use ice or frozen fruit, however you might consider making breast milk popsicles (also known as “momsicles”) for your teething baby. Pour expressed breast milk into small popsicle molds and freeze. These are also a good option for a sick baby if you are concerned about potential dehydration.


  • Teething tablets – Teething tablets are a homeopathic remedy use to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with cutting teeth. They are made of all natural ingredients such as Chamomilla which is known for decreasing irritability. The tablets are white balls about the size of a pine nut. You can place them under baby’s tongue and they will dissolve in saliva or you can dissolve in a teaspoon of water before giving to baby. Teething tablets are a safe, effective, and gentle way to provide relief to teething baby.

Getting through those teething periods can be difficult! We all want to ease our baby’s discomfort quickly and ensure adequate sleep for everyone! What has worked to comfort your teething baby? Would love to hear your tried and true methods! 🙂


Sunday Funday Giveaway | Baltic Amber Necklace

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

It’s time for our first Sunday Funday Giveaway!

Caring for a teething baby can be really challenging. In some cases even determining if your child is in fact teething is difficult. Sometimes it is only after the tooth appears you realize “oh, well that explains why they were being super fussy the past few days”. And even when you do know they are teething, knowing what to do to ease their discomfort can be confusing since a baby’s means of communication is so limited. There are many available options to comfort a teething baby, however one lesser known natural teething remedy is the use of Baltic Amber.

What is Baltic Amber? It’s a fossilized tree resin that has a high concentration of succinic acid. Okay, well now you are probably wondering what is succinic acid? It’s a powerful anti-oxidant that can protect and heal our body. The healing power of Baltic Amber has been known in Europe for centuries. Only more recently has science confirmed what ancient Europeans discovered long ago.

I can personally attest to the soothing powers of Baltic Amber jewelry. When my second son was around 5 months old

Beautiful and functional!

I got him his first amber necklace. We experienced very little, if any, fussiness due to teething discomfort. Since it is rare to see a necklace on such a young baby, people would often comment on his necklace. My older son noticed all the attention the necklace brought his brother and asked me if he could have a necklace too. So I got a matching one for him. Now they drew even more attention as people were always curious about my boys’ necklaces. Whenever I would tell people about the benefits of Baltic Amber, they would ask me if it actually works. I decided to get an amber necklace for myself to see what I thought. From the first day of wearing mine I was convinced that amber is remarkable stuff! And I happen to think it’s super cute on babies and mamas. I wear one daily now, as do my children. We love our amber necklaces and deeply appreciate their curative powers.
