Hello, Is it okay to use baby orajel on a 3-month old?

I used it on my son when he started teething at 2 1/2 months... I was scared at first but I needed SOMETHING! It helped him sleep so much better (still does, he's 6 months and just cut his third tooth today). I've just started reading stuff about not using too much, as it can numb the back of their throat (?), but personally, I've never had a problem with it.

Oral is good. However, it tends to toughen the gums so when more teeth come through you have to rely on it a lot. If you go to Wal-Mart or any other pharmacy they have excellent organic teething tablets that dissolve and helps babies over come teething pain. It worked on my twins and my daughter. They are $5 for a bottle of 240 or so. If you ask a pharmacist for help in finding them they know right where they are. My dr thinks they are great too.
