We have used amber necklaces as well and really like them. I've gotten mine online at inspired by finn (hyena cart)

L has been doing a lot of the same - drool everywhere and everything into her mouth! FWIW, those behaviors aren't necessarily associated with teething (though they certainly can be). Our ped mentioned that the drooling has to do with the stomach getting ready for food by producing more saliva, and the hand chewing and putting everything into the mouth is part of oral-motor development.
Still, I'm interested in hearing more about this amber necklace thing, since I'm not the pain-reliever sort (usually)
Leora is definitly gearing up for food. Very chompy & drooly, she bites as hard as she can onto my collarbone & has been inserting her fingers int her mouth while nursing for extra resistance. Ouch! She stops nursing & stares at my spoon/fork so intently, I swear she was reaching for it yesterday. I've let her sip water from my glass & smell spices when I cook, she's onto us.
I'm not sure, but I think that Easton is either teething or wanting food? He's CONSTANTLY drooling, to the point where he will soak the front of his shirts or a bib, always has his hands in his mouth or always putting his toys in his mouth. We've given him TINY tastes of pureed veggies and not sure if he's interested. He didn't choke and seemed like he knew what to do with his tongue. He's just shy of 4 months so I know that it's early. He's holding his head up nice and strong and holds his head up while on his tummy and tries scooting around (I posted a photo of this in the Shameless baby pictures thread). He's growing up too fast...
Great milestones, guys! I love to read how everyone else's kiddos are coming along.
Holly has discovered the zerbert raspberry ... ppphhhffffftttt noise. She has also recently found her feet! She looooooves to hold them and screech and squeal. And her voice, my oh my, does she love to screech and squeal. She is showing a ton of interest in sitting up and even standing. She loves when we stand her on our laps. She just screeches and squeals and PUSHES hard w/ her little legs.
Awesome! So glad to hear you all are starting to put your tots in the jumpers! We have one, too, but haven't had a chance to try Holly out in it. We are moving next week so everything is all packed up for the movers to load up. Our new house will have a few doorways that will be good candidates for the jumper. How long do they last in the jumper before they start to get frustrated?
Do any of our DDC members live in OH? That is where we are moving. I am sad to depart Sweet Huck and her boy Ethan. :-(
Quest drank out of a cup. Kind of scary. Didn't want to loose the liquid gold but didn't want a bottle either. Tried with water first and he dug it. Then onto the good stuff. It didn't all go down his chin!
