So just in case you’re in this season too or you’re about to be just keep these natural teething remedies for babies on standby! You never know if your little one is going to be cutting 1 tooth or 6!

Amber Teething Necklace

I have used these for all of my kids. My oldest started wearing one at 6 months, the others have worn them even sooner, more like 3 months. We’ve used several brands, but our current favorite one is from Inspired by Finn.

What Is An Amber Teething Necklace?

If you’re not familiar with amber teething necklaces this is straight from their website:

“Baltic amber is a fossilized tree resin estimated to be millions of years old. This amazing substance has been used for centuries in the Baltic region to relieve a wide range of discomforts and inflammation, and to strengthen the body’s immune system.  Baltic amber has been utilized for these purposes since the time of Hippocrates (known as “the father of modern medicine”) around 400 BC. 

Our customers have told us Baltic amber has helped take the edge off discomforts and symptoms associated with:  dental issues (such as the emergence of new teeth, orthodontic brace adjustments, TMJ), growing pains, allergies, sensory disorders associated with autism, headaches and migraines, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and shoulder discomfort, tendonitis, menstrual cramping, restless leg syndrome, back and knee discomfort, joint pain from chemotherapy, and many more.”

How Do You Use An Amber Teething Necklace?

So I didn’t have a clue what an amber teething necklace was when a friend mentioned them to me for the first time. I’ve been asked several times since using them if the baby chews on them, and no they aren’t meant for the baby to chew on like a teething toy. The heat from the body warms the amber and releases succinic acid which has analgesic properties that relieve pain in the body. I’m a firm believer that these work after using them on all 4 of my babies. It helps reduce the drool that comes with teething too.

What Size Do I Order?

Here’s a few tips on ordering the correct size.

  • Use a soft string to measure your child’s neck circumference.
  • You need to be able to fit 2-fingers between the string and the neck.
  • The necklace should never be long enough to reach passed the chin.

Average Sizes

  • 4 months – 12 months: 10.5″
  • 12 months – 2.5 years: 11″
  • 2.5 & up – 12/13″

Please be sure to use caution with anything around your child’s neck. These should be used only while under adult supervision and should be removed during sleep.

Homeopathic Medicines: Natural Teething Remedies for Babies

Camilia Teething Drops

These are by far my favorite drops to use with a teething baby. They work, but the ingredients I can feel good about too! Water-based and free of benzocaine, flavors, dyes, lactose, sugar, and artificial sweeteners, does it get any better? Best of all, if you have an early teether you can use these from 1 month and up!

The packages are easy to use. Simply open the wrapper, take out the pack of 5 doses, take 1 dose off, twist off cap, and squeeze into baby’s mouth. Done and with no mess!

Boiron is our go-to for homeopathic medicines! If you want to read more just visit their site here.

Hyland’s Baby Oral Pain Relief

So Camilia is for sure my top choice for teething, but I’ve used these before too! There is both a day and a night time version, depending on what you need. The ingredient list is amazing on this one too! Just visit their website for all the details here.

These come in a small, dissolvable tablet. So again, easy to give to baby and no mess! They’re safe for babies 6 months and under as well as older toddlers.

Essential Oils: Natural Teething Remedies for Babies

Using essential oils, whether diffusing or applying, is a wonderful natural teething remedy for babies.

I usually keep diffusing fairly simple, I like to use either lavender or frankincense. Both of these oils are calming and relaxing for the baby and you!

Next, I like to make a quick little roller bottle to apply to baby’s jaw line.
