• I didn't want to give him Tylenol, but I used it when things got desperate. Tylenol helped a bit, but wired him up. I used Tylenol 4 times in 16 months.
•I bought an expensive amber necklace, which helped, but not enough. At one point, I decided to remove it, thinking it wasn't helping. Two days later I was desperately looking for it.
• homeopathic pills and liquids helped, but only after 4 doses, which had to be spaced apart. I was giving him these pills constantly.
In his 16th month, I started taking Turmeric again, as a supplement for my allergies. That's when I noticed a huge improvement with the teething. He's sleeping for longer stretches of time at night, and he's napping more regularly. I removed the Amber necklace, and don't need to give him pills anymore! How do I know it's the turmeric? Because, he wakes more frequently to breastfeed, and bites me 😩 when I forget to take turmeric.
I realize now, the inflammation in my body, is what causes inflamed gums in him. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, and has multiple health benefits. I just mix 1/8 of a baby spoon in a glass of water and drink it daily. I'm so grateful I found this remedy, I only wish I found it 15 months ago!
