My baby is teething. Holy cow is he teething! The poor little guy is constantly chewing on his fists or my shirts, or anything else he can put in his mouth. A few weeks ago I made a teething necklace to help sooth his little gums, and give my shirt collars a much needed break. I had seen teething necklaces for sale online and thought they are a great idea, but most of them cost between $15 and $30, depending on the materials used.
The necklace I made cost around $6 with coupons from JoAnn.
Leather or silk cord
A stone donut bead such as Jasper or Agate
Cut the cord long enough for your baby to be able to reach. I wear Calvin in a mei tai, so I measured while he was in there. Next, just loop the cord through the donut and pull tight. Don't use a bail, or anything that could break off and become a choking hazard. For this same reason make sure your bead is too large for the baby to completely fit in his/her mouth.

Do you have any special remedies for teething?
