Staying Wild is a family run business from East Anglia. I was pleased to see that they are into natural parenting and follow these concepts with their own children. Something I thought was interesting was that All of their products contain materials sourced from other family businesses. They are proud to be European specialists in Baltic Amber Jewelry, stocking a beautiful range of hand crafted Baltic Amber pieces for children and adults. No two items of jewelry are ever the same as no two pieces of amber are identical. With a personal love for these, their aim has been to provide the highest quality Grade Natural Baltic Amber pieces with clear information and safety advice. There is some mixed information out there on Baltic Amber teething necklaces and bracelets. They want parents and children to be able to enjoy wearing amber with the full knowledge of how these items are intended to be used.
Jamie says, "After what seemed like forever for my amber necklace and nursing necklace arrived (1 week 4 days) we were excited to receive our pretty blue wrapped bags ... prior to wearing the amber necklace my little man drooled and chewed in everything after putting it on him we noticed improvement in the drooling within a day! We went from 3 bibs to not wearing any. Everyday it just kept getting better."
The nursing necklace which Jamie got to custom design has been a huge life saver for her. She has an aggressive eater and whenever he nurses she is used as a scratching post. While wearing the nursing necklace he forced on playing with that instead of scratching her!! It has made her nursing experience pleasurable again, Not to mention its very fashionable!!!
Jamie says the only draw back would have to be delivery but when ordering something from another country you have to be patient!! Staying wild was easy to talk to and so friendly, definitely a family run business!!
Annabel from Staying Wild insisted on sending me some of her goodies which included, 1 child size Raw green - Baltic amber necklace. 1 wood bead and Baltic amber adult bracelet. 1 coconut shell and Raw Baltic amber adults bracelet. 1 lavender sleepy bag.
I was pleasantly surprised at the lavender sleepy bag. It is very hard for me to fall asleep without sleeping aids, yet a few minutes with the sleepy bag I was relaxed and ready for a nap. I may ditch those sleeping pills all together now and get to use a more natural approach which is an extra plus! Each Lavender 'Sleepy Bag' is made from vintage or reclaimed fabric. They have been machine stitched, stuffed full with dried lavender (no stuffing) and hand stitched closed I just learned so many great things about lavender that I never knew such as: Lavender has been used for many years as a natural remedy for a range of ailments from insomnia and anxiety to depression and fatigue. Research has confirmed that lavender produces calming, soothing, and slight sedative effects when its scent is inhaled. Lavender has also been shown to act as an insect deterrent. Evidence suggests that the use of lavender may slow the activity of the nervous system, improve sleep quality, promote relaxation, and lift mood in people suffering from sleep disorders.
I will definitely be recommending Staying Wild to all our followers & friends when they inquire about teething pain solutions. All their products are reasonably priced and custom made to order. It's definitely worth checking out!
