Baby Not Sleeping at Night? Try Amethyst

Rock your Baby to Sleep with Amethyst

Sleep? What sleep?

The one thing every new parent dreads about bringing home their new little bundle of joy (aside from changing diapers), is the first few months of going without sleep. It takes a newborn a while to figure out her own natural circadian rhythm, or periods of restfulness and wakefulness.  Most humans are awake during the day and asleep at night, which is what most parents attempt to train their newborns to do; but when you’re used to being inside a nice comfy tummy and doing whatever you want whenever you want, establishing a regular rhythm is a daunting task.  In addition to learning when to be awake and when to be asleep, a newborn’s body also has to adjust to regular mealtimes so that they sleep through the night after dinner.  

Those several weeks that it takes a newborn to get into the groove can be extremely harsh on a parent. Newborns typically wake 2-3 times during the night to feed and be changed, and have no respect for dad’s alarm clock.  Then it’s a long day of more feeding, more diaper changing, naps, laundry, dishes, taking care of other children, cooking and keeping the house in order.  It’s brutal! Plus a crying baby at night tends to wake up everyone in the household, so no one gets any rest at all; tempers flare and everyone seems to be grumpy and irritable. 

So many choices...

There are many, many methods to helping a newborn establish a good wakeful/restful routine. Everyone has a different opinion on what works best and what doesn’t; some people say to leave the baby alone and let her fall into her own natural rhythm and some people say to not let the baby sleep as much during the day.  Should you force a baby into a schedule that mimics the rest of the family’s schedule, or let her pick it up on her own? Is it ok to make a newborn wake up from a nap and take a bottle at a certain time, or should you just feed her when she’s hungry?  It’s very confusing and being sleep deprived doesn’t make those questions any more clear.

What can you do?

There is something that mothers have used for centuries to help their babies get on a schedule – Amethyst.  Known throughout the world, Amethyst was used by the ancients as a sleep stone, to help young children sleep peacefully through the night, and instill a sense of calm and peace.  BalticEssentials.com has baby necklaces featuring Amethyst and Hazelwood that not only promote a proper circadian rhythm, but also aid digestion.  One reason babies wake during the night is because of acid reflux, or having too much stomach acid. Hazelwood absorbs excess acid and brings the body to a more neutral pH level.

So if your baby is still up and down like a roller coaster and you’re so tired you can’t remember what day it is, give Amethyst a chance and follow in the footsteps of ancient mothers who have relied on it for thousands of years to help their babies sleep.

How Lapis Lazuli And Amethyst Can Aid In Toddler Frustration

Ease frustration in Kids

The Fussy, Angry, and Crying Child

We often refer temper tantrums as uncontrollable and fussy behavior when our toddler acts out too much. Every parent is familiar with the screaming, kicking, or crying they do from time to time. No matter what type of episode they go through, toddlers can become overwhelmed with stress, frustration, anxiety and even sadness.  

 

Going from ten back to one can be a task, but there are ways you can help your toddler anytime they are overly frustrated. Stones and crystals are excellent methods that have been balancing the body with their healing properties for thousands of years. Our bodies are naturally receptive to gemstones and crystals because they are comprised of mineral silicon-dioxide at a cellular level. When they are placed directly on our bodies, they have a powerful vibratory effect which surges from the crystal (or stone) directly to the bloodstream.

 

Ease Temper Tantrums in Toddlers Naturally

 

The deep cobalt blue stone, Lapis Lazuli, has existed for hundreds of thousands of years and is the oldest stone known to man. It is known as the stone of protection and is able to recognize a psychic attack (anxiety or tantrum), and block it while returning the unwanted negative energy back to it’s source. Lapis is also beneficial for the throat, larynx and vocal cords and quickly releases any stress in these areas, allowing the body to feel peace and serenity.


Amethyst, the calming stone, is a natural stress reliever. It is able to soothe irritability, dispel anxiety and alleviate sadness. Ancient Egyptians over thousands of years ago, prized amethyst because of its beauty and healing properties. It calms the mind by ridding the space of negative energy, allowing relaxation and inner peace to take over. Amethyst is proven to help reduce tension headaches that even toddlers can suffer from after a “temper tantrum”.

 

Due to the hysterical nature of these episodes, or temper tantrums, they can bring a lot of discomfort and anxiety to our little ones even after they calm down. Baltic Essentials Hazelwood Blue Lapis Lazuli and Ameythyst Necklace can help alleviate stress and anxiety by promoting clarity and relaxation in your child. It is perfect for parent and child alike!

 

Keep in mind that our necklaces are not for toddlers to chew on and should be removed during naps and when unsupervised.
