Is it ever too early for Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces?

Is it ever too early to buy a Baltic amber necklace for your child? No. My daughter, Lady Bug, has been wearing hers since she was four months old. Was or is she teething? No. I just didn’t want to go through the pain and discomfort with her that I experienced with my son, Buggie, when he popped out his first two teeth.

Buggie spiked a temp (and yes, I know that doctors swear kids don’t do this when they’re teething but I maintain that they’re wrong and that kids do weird things when teething) and was pulling on his ears. We took him in only to find that nothing was wrong (and that a trip to Urgent Care is more expensive than a regular visit). Sure enough three days later his first teeth popped through. That whole experience was enough to make me never want to go through it again! If it won’t hurt, why not start early?

Here’s my Lady Bug wearing her pretty Baltic amber necklace! When did you get yours for your little one(s)?
