While your post is accurate in stating the inclusion of Belladonna in Hyland's teething tablets, the company website gives more information. (See http://www.hylands.com/news/teethinginfo...) And, they are monitored by the FDA as a drug maunfacturer. Specifically, they state:



"Hyland’s is a reputable manufacturer of homeopathic drugs since 1903. In the more than 60 years that Hyland’s Teething Tablets have been on the market, we have received no significant adverse events reports related to the product. In addition, the American Association of Poison Control Centers has told Hyland’s that it has received no report of a serious adverse reaction to Teething Tablets.



Our #1 priority as a company has always been providing safe, effective healthcare to our consumers, especially the children that we serve... As an FDA-regulated drug manufacturer, we adhere to all mandated standards and practices to ensure the highest quality product."



Hope this helps!

Hylands are a gift from God!! My daughter absolutely loves them and they are all natural, which I absolutely love. You can get a bottle at Wal Mart for like 6 bucks and it lasts about a month. My daughter has 10 teeth and she hasn't fussed more than an hour through any of them. PS: the Belladonna is such a small dose that the only way it would be harmful to your baby is if you gave him a whole bottle in one day.

i freeze cantaloupe or honeydew or you could try banana too, and give it to him in a little strainer that kinda looks like a giant ring with a netting. It holds the food, so they can taste it with out choking. Sometimes it's the only thing that works for him, I've tried everything too!!!

The hylands teething tablests work great or in a pinch put a damp baby washcloth in the freezer for about 30 minutes. My daughter loves chewing on them.

ok, this is going to seem off the wall and it has nothing to do with the child directly, but after two weeks of solid crying with my first child and trying every medicine and treatment I could think of, I was willing to try ANYTHING....and it worked. She never cried again while she was teething. There is an old wives tale that says to take an egg from your refrigerator and put it pointy end down in a coffee mug. Sit the mug in one of your cabinets and forget about it until the majority of your child's teeth have come in. We left it in there for about a year, and she never had any more problems. All of her teeth came in fine and we never had to use orajel or anything else again. I swear by this and will definately be doing it with my 7 week old when she starts teething. I think it's worth trying...won't hurt the child and it doesn't stink because the shell is not cracked.

I have found that teething tablets work very well my kids. They dissolve very quickly, you can get them at walmart. Good luck with it.

You know those long skinny onions they grill at mexican restaurants??? cut off the very tip and wash it with salt, let the baby suck on it or rub it on his gums. It was the only thing that worked for my lil girl..

I tried everything too and nothing worked so I started giving them tylenol and that worked awesome. Just call the doctor and ask how much you should give him.

May sound crazy, but letting my little girl chew on her cardboard books helps her. Beef jerky was something my son liked. For the pain, I went with motrin 'cause it worked better than tylenol. Plus, I only gave it to them when it was absolutely needed. This way they weren't fussing over minor pains.

This might sound absolutely far-fetched, but I put a baltic amber teething necklace on my daughter and she has NEVER complained once about teething!
I got it here:
www.inspiredbyfinn.com
I know many people would have an issue with putting a beaded necklace on their baby, but I have never had a problem, and neither has my SIL who is not so into natural remedies. She thought the necklace was just cute at first so she let her baby wear it, but when she realized that she had never heard her fuss through any of the teeth breaking through, she was convinced it was the necklace.
Good luck and hope you and your little man find some relief soon :)

frozen banana or bicki pegs (really hard biscuits that help the teeth to come through quicker)

While I'm not huge on giving meds to a baby (It's such a pain, and I always wonder just how safe things will turn out to be in 30 years), my doctor recommended Hyland's teething tablets. They just dissolve in your child's mouth -- and though I initially doubted the efficacy of the med, they actually DID work. Kind of hard to find, but DEFINITELY worth the hunt. It bought us at least a few hours of quieted screams.

Dab your finger into some children's benadryl and rub on the baby's gums. Idid this with my two boys and it works like a charm.

Hyland's teething tablets are awesome- at the very least, they at least take the edge off and help the baby calm down. You place them under their tongue and they dissolve almost instantly- they are all natural too. I've heard good things about teething biscuits too.
