Magic teething pill that isn't toxic medicine? You bet!

I am a recent convert to homeopathy after having had enough with modern medicine that just keeps proving itself ineffective or at the least - harmful (for me and my family that is). While it does have its place, modern medicine is often not the best remedy for everyday aches and pains, and often even for common disorders and diseases. A lot of our health problems are actually nutritionally based...but when it comes to babies teething - of course that is not the case, it is just a natural process of life! To make that natural process less painful both for mom and baby I decided to give Hyland's Homeopathic Teething Tablets a try.

I ordered mine at Drugstore.com, and yay, they are FSA eligible! So it is a great buy if you are an infant or toddler parent (or soon-to-be) looking to spend FSA dollars that will otherwise expire. They range from about $4 to $5 for 125 tablets, and worth every penny!

There are no side effects, no worries of building intolerance to pain killers at such an early age, nothing toxic and no chemicals. My little daughter is only three and a half months and is already teething. While it doesn't seem to bother her to the point of crying, she gets really fussy, chews her hands, doesn't eat, etc. So I gave these a try and since she is so little I decided to just use 1 tablet at first as opposed to the 2 as recommended. I don't know... was it magic? The wisdom of homeopathic remedies? All of the above? It worked instantly and calmed her down, she was all happy again and ready to nap or play.

The tablets themselves are really tiny and dissolve instantly under the tongue, so no fear of choking. They are not messy, really easy to use, and they are set in a natural lactose base. I don't know what else a parent could ask for! I need to stock up on these so that we have them when the molars come in too! :)

A couple of words of caution:
1. The bottle is not childproof, so please keep it away from kids. Homepathic medicine is potent, and while very safe in small doses, you don't want an overdose on it!
2. One of the ingredients is Belladonna, in very rare instances individuals may be allergic to this ingredient in homeopathy. Use with caution and always follow the dosage directions on package. You will encounter pediatricians who will scare you with 'it isn't safe and can even be deadly', but if you are a responsible parent and do your research as well as consult with a reputable doctor who practices homeopathic medicine, you will learn that the statement is a lie and it is perfectly safe if used properly. Any medicine, whether modern or homeopathy can be deadly if it is overdosed on, end of question. Most modern doctors are not educated in homeopathy and are not a reliable reference for it, so use your judgment.

EcoMama Green Factor: +4 on 'greeness'! A sugar free, 100% natural homeopathic remedy. If the ingredients would be listed as organic I would give it a +5. It is made in the US.

I will suggest amber teething necklaces. They've been super. It might be too early to tell, but both of the kids have been way less irritable today. I haven't given them any tylenol for teething pain, but they seem happy and pain free with the necklaces. Plus, the necklaces are adorable. I took the kids strolling in the mall today and got many compliments. http://www.amber-teething-necklaces.co.uk

That's interesting, I love amber since I've lived in Latvia for ten years. :) It is the national stone of sorts and very popular among the tourists. I have some amber necklaces so thanks for the advice!
