Melissa - posted on 11/25/2010 ( 13 moms have responded )




my 6 and a half month old is teething really badly, I have heard of teething tablets and I was wondering if any of you moms out there have used them or not and what was your results with them? Also any ideas on how else to help the teething prossess would be great.

Thank you

I used a nice clean, peeled, frozen carrot. It had nutrients, it was cold, and my kids loved them! :)

Like others have said, the Hyland's teething tablets have been recalled here in the US. I've never tried them because I saw the ingredient Belladonna on the bottle at the store and thought "no way!" and moved on to the veggie section to get my carrots :)

edited to add: I also use baby motrin for night time so they can get enough relief to go to sleep without having to be constnatly sucking on something (the carrots).

I had a friend tell me she used them on all three of her children and they worked great. So when my lil' one started teething that is what I bought for him. They didn't work for him so for his Well baby checkup I asked the doctor y it didn't work. It just depends on the baby he told me try a cold wash rag or even tylenol. That will help ease the pain.

We are lucky here in australia they haven't been recalled. I was told they had no child proof cap on them and a child had got into them and overdosed on them (too much belladonna in one go - ok in little doses apparently) but they work well for my son. A friend of mine said it made her son hypo so It's trial and error with them.

They Hyland's Teething Tablets actually have been recalled b/c they contain too much of some ingredient. I don't remember the details. I'd research before giving your baby this product. I used it on my son before this and it didn't work on him anyway. Either does orajel, though. I'd recommend anything cold to chew on, like a cold wet rag. My son loved that.

They have been recalled, but i hear they work wonders! When my son started teething I went to the pharmacy and asked them about them and they said the work wonders but had been recalled. it may be a few months before you would see them on the shelves at the store

I would definitely say go with teething tablets. Also, Hyland's has teething gel that is amazing! I put it on my sons gums and within a few minutes it works.

they are the only thing I would use they work wonders for my son Ive never used oral gels my sons doctor said it toughens the gums also my son loved chewing on the outside of icee pops you know the pop cicles that comes liquid then you freeze hem but once he started getting teeth I wouldnt let him chew on them I got this teether that you bite and it vibrates and he likes that

I used teething tablets. to me they worked faster and better for my lo than orajel. I bought my lo teething toys and he would chew on those.

I use them for every tooth coming through- They don't have strong medication in them like Advil, tylenol or motrin so they don't make your child groggy and wacked out!! I have had friends that I reccomended them too as well but for some kids they just plain don't work.. as well when you are at the health food store get some all natural orajel- it has strong ingredients like pepermint and does wonders for a quick fix!! Other then that lots of ice cubes! you can buy a contraption that looks like a spoon and there is a mesh bag on the end so they dont get chunks so they don't choke- my daughter will not take teething rings as she doesnt like holding anything cold but the spoon is plastic and she loves them!! Hope this helps!!

I haven't used them but from what I've heard they work really well. Don't quote me on that though lol. I guess I'm not that much help... :p
