*I apologize in advance if you’re disappointed that my list does not include a formula or recipe for dyeing your baby green.*

Baltic Amber Teething Jewelry: Miracle Cure or BS?

by RealMomofNJ on March 07, 2013 in Baby Care, Health, Products, Resources

I love crunchy, hippie mom crap, so when I first heard about Baltic amber baby jewelry for teething, I was all over it. Jewelry that has an analgesic effect to ease teething pain? Instead of medicine? Tell me more!

I was schooled by two great moms out in Seattle. Both used teething necklaces for their babies, and both swore by…

by RealMomofNJ on October 04, 2012 in Baby Care, Parent Stuff
