Sponsor Spotlight: Punkin Butt

I can't believe how fast the holidays are approaching! Because they're coming so fast, I almost forgot about the upcoming Green Christmas Giveaway event! It starts a week from Wednesday and I wanted to give you a sneak peek at my sponsor: Punkin Butt

I first discovered this company when trying to address B's teething woes. This poor kid seems like he's been teething since day one! He started showing signs: drooling, gnawing on everything, puffy red gums, general grumpiness at around 3 months. I was recommended an amber teething necklace to aid with some of that. In addition to stopping the faucet coming out of his mouth, it became quite the talking point at swim lessons! He's had it on ever since. My cousin lovingly calls his necklace his "hippie beads". It kind of has a nice ring to it :) B would still show signs of discomfort whenever one of those pearly white jagged stalactites (or stalagmites depending on the location) would pop through and we tried EVERYTHING. We started with the teething tablets, then Acetaminophen or ibuprofen. We tried frozen washcloths, frozen peas in mesh feeders, frozen anything really. Nursing worked, but at some point he had to unlatch. We went through this starting with his bottom teeth at 4 months all the way through 11 months. It was at about 11 months when I learned about the Punkin Butt Teething Oil

Not the face of your typical teething baby. That's him "smiling" on command :)
 By now you know how I try to be natural/green if possible so when I saw this was a blend of oils I was intrigued. Naturally, I tried it on my own gums first. I didn't feel any numbness or tingling or even a bad taste. The smell was soft but calming, I think that's the chamomile, but either way it was nice. I was anxious to see what B thought. That night before bed when he was getting ornery, I put some on my finger and rubbed it on his gums. It was almost instant but he calmed right down. He even let me put my finger back in his mouth for another round! Not even an attempt at a bite! :) If that's not a testimonial I don't know what is. The product has been a lifesaver for us especially with all 4 molars popping in around his first birthday. I also love that they are now packaging the oil in glass bottles versus plastic. It's the little things like that that shows a company really cares about their impact on the environment and shows amazing integrity.  

Grab some before B gets it all!

Because I loved this product so much I wanted to share it all with you and Punkin Butt agreed to sponsor a teething package giveaway complete with your own bottle of Teething Oil and Amber Necklace! Keep an eye out next week for the giveaway to start!! If you can't wait that long, please check out Punkin Butt's online store and their facebook page to learn more .
