What’s worse than a baby teething? Two babies teething! Yes, one of the “joys” of parenting multiples is that the babies go through major milestones around the same time…including the dreaded teething. It seems like our twins started teething around 4 months (we thought this with our other two as well) but they are rounding the six-month mark and neither one has cut a tooth yet. But that hasn’t stopped them from drooling and fussing as those pearly whites try to pop through.
I hate resorting to infant pain medications or even teething tablets, but I really hate hearing the babies crying and fussing all the time. Luckily, there is another alternative: Baltic Amber Teething accessories. I remember hearing great things about Baltic Amber after (of course!) Keeley was pretty much done teething, and I knew that I had to try it out on the twins.
During my search for the best Baltic Amber teething products I came across Bouncy Baby Boutique and found a great selection of Baltic Amber products. But, if you’re like me, you really don’t know what Baltic Amber really is or how it works. Bouncy Baby Boutique explains on their homepage how Baltic Amber helps babies and toddlers who are teething:
BALTIC AMBER HEALING PROPERTIES
Baltic Amber is found in and around the Baltic sea where an ancient species of trees was washed to shore to fossilize and create the unique and healing resin we know as Baltic Amber. What makes Baltic Amber so effective, and the reason we choose to sell only Amber from the Baltic region, is it’s high content of succinic acid. Succinic acid is a natural occurring component of Amber and can be as high as 8% in the amber found in the Baltic region. Succinic acid is a natural pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and a central nervous system calmer. It is so effective on babies and small children because it simultaneously eases their pain while also having a strong soothing effect on their nervous system – all with zero side effects!
Amber is a wholly-organic material derived from the resin of an extinct species of trees and over the ages the resin has hardened into Amber. Amber allows the body to re-balance and heal itself. It treats the throat, stomach, spleen, kidneys, bladder, liver, and gallbladder, alleviates joint problems, and strengthens the mucus membranes. Baltic Amber contains succinic acid and when it is warmed against the skin it releases an all natural analgesic (pain relief) which helps to ease teething pains in children as well as colic and gas and other ailments.
I was sold! One thing that set Bouncy Baby Boutique apart from other shops I viewed was their selection of beautiful anklets (most places I saw only necklaces and bracelets) they sell. I particularly like the idea of baby anklets because the babies won’t be able to put them in their mouths. Monique, the owner of Bouncy Baby Boutique, let me pick out my two favorite Baltic Amber teething anklets for the twins.
I chose the Baltic Amber Teething Anklet/Bracelet – Baroque Multicolor :
and the Baltic Amber Teething Anklet/Bracelet – Baroque Honey:
Monica said that the Baltic Amber works differently on everyone, so I was really excited to see how it would work with the twins. Their anklets arrived quicker than expected and when I opened the box I saw that they were in their own beautiful packaging. The anklets were inside this beautiful, gold bag which doubles as a place to store the anklets when they are not on the babies.
Along with the bag came instructions for how to care for Baltic Amber: using a soft cloth gently wipe clean each individual bead of Amber. It can be rinsed in clean spring water and left to dry in the sunlight. I love it that I don’t have to purchase anything special to clean their anklets.
The anklets are so beautiful; the photos I took do not do them any justice. They look so delicate, yet feel very sturdy. Even if they did not help the twins, I know I would probably still have the babies wear them because they are so beautiful!
At first I was concerned that the anklets might be too small for the twins as they just seemed so tiny in my hands. However, I had no trouble putting them on the twins (even on Charlie’s chubby little legs).

Our Zoe is a little pipsqueak, and I did notice the anklet slipping off her foot when she would start rolling around a lot. And this is exactly why Bouncy Baby Boutique also notes in their “Caring for your Baltic Amber” card that you should “Please supervise your child at all times while wearing the necklace. Baby amber necklaces are made for wearing, NOT FOR CHEWING! Teething jewelry should be removed when child is sleeping or unattended!”.
I cannot say with 100% certainty that the Baltic Amber anklets helped my twins with their discomfort from teething, but I will say that they definitely were a lot less fussy whenever they were wearing their Baltic Amber anklets. So to me, I feel that their Baltic Amber teething anklets did help soothe them.
There are so many things I love about our Baltic Amber teething anklets: they are absolutely beautiful, they definitely seem to help soothe my babies, and they are made with the highest of quality.The string in each of Bouncy Baby Boutique’s baby amber necklaces and bracelets is knotted by hand in between each and every bead, so should the necklace break the rest of the beads will not scatter. I know you all have been there when one of your children accidentally breaks a necklace or bracelet and beads go flying everywhere! Add to that the amazing customer service and communication And another great thing I learned on Bouncy Baby Boutique’s website is that Baltic Amber is not just for babies:
These also work wonders with adults! They help with migraines, arthritis, acid reflux and many, many other ailments. Amber will help calm a baby safely and naturally without resorting to drugs. Used for centuries in Europe, Amber’s natural anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties are perfect to soothe teething babies.
