    <p>Please don't laugh, I'm feeling stressed and tired, and I need some kind caring loving support.  Our 1yo teething toddler screams and cries a lot, mostly when he's teething, but he screams when we're about to feed him and in between bites, like a panicky impatient scream.  I imagine it's...

  15. Family Safety
    <p>Anyone have experience using an amber teething necklace with their baby?  Do they work?  Are they considered safe?  I have seen them on babies pictured here on MDC but never IRL and I am sure I'd get a lot of comments if I put one on my baby.</p>
