FAQ Answers

About a week or so ago I posted an FAQ post, where I opened the flood gates to you all to ask ANY questions you may have been wondering about.  

Here are the answers to the few questions that were asked:

1. I’ve noticed in many photos that Hazel wears a beaded necklace. Is there some significance to it?

Actually, I have been asked this question so many times. It's a good one.

Hazel is wearing an Amber Teething Necklace. She has been wearing one since she was a wee babe and is totally used to it hanging around her neck. Amber is known to have natural healing properties that help to ease the pain a child might feel from teething. It DEFINITELY works for Hazel. I much prefer to use this instead of giving her medicine for the pain (but sometimes you do what you gotta do!!!)



Here is a link to more information about Teething Necklaces from a store in our local community where they can be purchased. Here is what "Sweetheart Baby Boutique" found out about Amber necklaces:

“The warmth from the skin releases the active ingredient in the Baltic amber, succinic acid. Recent scientific research has proved that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body. It improves immunity and the balance of acids when absorbed into the bloodstream, it stimulates the thyroid glands to help reduce drooling and soothes red inflamed cheeks. Amber’s anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are recognized by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic, which will help to relieve teething pain and calm a baby without resorting to drugs. The skin’s warmth releases healing oils from the amber, a resin, which is absorbed into the bloodstream."

Hope that helps, thanks for asking!!!


2. Where did you get Hazel's Activity Center?


It has been such a great tool for Hazel. She started using it at around 7 months and is still using it now. We have used it for Physio, for playing, for dancing, and for keeping Hazel out of trouble while mommy gets things done. It was a shower gift from our very generous friends. They got it at "Toys R Us", here is a pic. I can't seem to find the same one at Toys R Us online. They must have a new model out. Here is a link to that one. But here is the same one at Walmart.




3. When are you coming to Australia?


Don't worry Auntie Jennine we are planning on coming that way as soon as we possibly can. We got a little held up with the fetus that decided to take up residence in me for a little while. LOVE YOU!!!


Thanks to all who asked questions. I love hearing from readers!!!! If you ever have any questions about anything please feel free to ask!!!
