FLOWER CHILD RELEASES NEW LINE OF AMBER JEWELLERY

Baby cutting teeth? Amber necklaces have been historically used to alleviate teething discomfort.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – April 7, 2010 – By this point in time my baby had been not sleeping for three weeks, and crying for two hours straight each night. Why, you may ask? Having ruled out all other possibilities – no illness, no dirty nappies, not hungry - but having noted copious dribbling, chewing on mummy’s shoulder, chewing on daddy’s thumb, chewing on doggy’s ear (yuck, spit)… Keeping us all AWAKE… I suspected this saga might, just might, have something to do with newly sprouting teeth.

So, like most utterly sleep-deprived parents with dribbling, drooling, inconsolable babies, I went to the chemist for advice.

“Hello,” said Maureen from behind the counter. “How are you today?”

I bit my tongue and lied. “Great,” I said. “It’s her who’s not.” I gestured to my 13 month old grinning in the stroller.

“Really? She looks perfect to me.” Maureen leant over and began cooing at my distressingly co-operative child – who had, the night before, been the demon from hell.

So I explained the situation, as calmly and rationally as I could. At which point, Mrs. Gribble, from the bakery next door, approached to pay for her suppositories - and meanwhile, eavesdropped on our conversation.

“Oh!!” She said. “Haven’t you heard of amber? It comes in teething necklaces – been around for donkey’s years. My daughter swears by it.”

Normally, the only thing I’d be grateful to Mrs. Gribble for, would be a quick exit, but at this point I was prepared to listen to anything, including details regarding the beneficial properties of fossilized tree resin.

She convinced me to visit a local store.

flower child, based in Collaroy on Sydney’s beautiful Northern Beaches, has launched a new range of uber-gorgeous amber necklaces for both littlies and adults – or anywhere in between. As soon as I walked into the store, I thought, bugger the teething necklaces; this stuff is so pretty I want some for myself.

But, as the lovely proprietress explained in depth the alleged benefits of amber, for both teething babies, and general well being – including afflictions such as shoulder pain in adults, I decided to get several in different sizes. There’s such a great selection of colours and styles, and apparently the skin’s warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. Hey, it’s been used for centuries for its specific benefits, so who would I be to argue? At this point I would’ve tried anything.

It’s been two weeks now, and my little one has settled down so much, sleeping again, and reverted to her happy self. I even bought one for Mrs. Gribble as a thank you – and not once since, have I heard her complain about her neck pain, when I shop at the bakery. That’s a first.
