In honor of reaching and surpassing 100 followers on the blog, it is time for my very first blog giveaway, and I am so pleased to say that the giveaway is for one of my favorite must-have baby items: the amber necklace! Thank you to Inspired By Finn for sponsoring the giveaway!
You've seen the photos of my Jack wearing his amber necklace:
And no doubt you've heard me talk about the benefits of baltic amber. Baltic amber has natural analgesic properties, and many parents - myself included - have found that babies can benefit from wearing amber while teething. Jack has had six teeth break through and I very strongly believe that teething has not been the rough ordeal it would have been without the relief that the amber necklace brings. Plus? It is adorable. He looks darling in his necklace, and people comment on it all the time. An amber teething necklace is, in my opinion, a must-have for teething babies, and they make great gifts for new moms.
So how do you get one of your own?

I have recommended amber from Inspired by Finn since Jack was just a few months old, when this blog was brand new and long before I was thinking about blog giveaways. Thank you to Inspired by Finn for sponsoring this great contest - I can't say enough positive things about these necklaces.
