When I’m out and about with the bubba, people often comment on the necklace he’s wearing.
Justine is passionate about her product which she insists is a cure-all for any number of problems from acid reflux and colic to bronchitis and of course, the dreaded teething pains.
Hazelwood, a tree that has natural healing properties discovered by Native Americans who put chips on their babies’ necks to soothe teething troubles. The idea is that the wood helps neutralize acidity irregularity in the body, balancing your system and relieving any associated symptoms.
Tearless Teething all-natural, organic necklaces and bracelets are strands of hazelwood carefully threaded together with beads. And don’t worry about safety – there’s a special catch that means the necklace will simply snap off if it’s pulled too tight.
The effects of the necklace on babies are meant to last anywhere from three to six months. Jed has been wearing his for two months without ever taking it off (you only have to remove it if you go swimming).
I have to say up front that Jed is a naturally chilled out baby, even at the worst of times. His first teeth came through without too much fuss. But before we tried the necklace, he did have a couple of bad nights with raised temperature, ear pulling and crying we couldn’t soothe.
Since he’s had the necklace he’s cut more teeth including his molars on the right side. I can honestly say that it’s been a relatively painless process (well, at least for mama).
The necklace doesn’t stop him from grizzling occasionally or wanting to bite down hard on almost everything in sight. But he’s not had any excessive crying, feverish episodes, drooling, nappy rash or other symptoms that I’d attribute to teething.
All in all, Jed seems happy with his necklace and I think you’ll agree he looks extra handsome too.
If you’d like to give Tearless Teething a try to help your baby or child through teething, colic or other issues associated with excess acidity, you’re in luck.
We have one necklace (blue or pink beads) to give away to a lucky reader. Simply leave a comment on the post before midnight (GMT) on Sunday May 2. Winner will be picked at random and informed via email and on the blog.
