So I've heard a couple of posts about not using baby orajel cause it hardens baby's gums or something like that. We have used it and had no trouble in fact loved it. Before I used it I called my doc and he said it was fine. Since then my daughter had a food bug and hostpital said not to use cause babies can aspirate. So I make sure not to do before eating or sleeping, but still did use because its so immediately effective in really bad situations.
I've tried doing some research and can only find a snopes article that said its still looking into whether babies can stop breathing and some stuff about it numbing babies throats if it gets that far ( I assume this is the aspirating part).
Anyone have anymore info? Legitimate please :) Not asking for theories.
