Do Natural Teething Drops Work?
I use Gentle Naturals Homeopathic Teething Drops for teething pain and irritability for my son Bean. These drops contain chamomile, calcium phosphate, potassium phosphate, magnesium phosphate, and delphinium staphisagaria. It is virtually impossible to overdose with homeopathic remedies. I tried homeopathic remedies after learning oral gel can have serious side affects, such as skin irritation, allergic reaction, and even overdose resulting in death from a reaction or if used on broken skin. I tried Hyland’s and Camilia with our little one after hearing these had worked for other babies, but they didn’t seem to help Bean, so I tried the Gentle Naturals and it works well. It has a very calming effect on my baby and helps him get back to sleep. I discovered this product when he was about eight months old, although the label says it can be used as young as four months. When Bean is suffering greatly, such as when a tooth is about to break the surface, I give him teething drops every couple of hours. If he is experiencing mild teething pain, I give him four doses a day. In general, I give him teething drops before bed as part of our bedtime routine.
Before giving any teething medicine, aid or natural remedy to your baby, please consult with your pediatrician.
