Pros:Hyland's Teething tablets are 100% natural, no side effects, Soft tablets Dissolve instantly, Sooths pain and quiets fussiness associated with Teething pain
Cons:there are none.
DISCLAIMER: There are no other types of teething products to write an opinion on here at Epinions. I do NOT like Orajel and if there was better place to submit my opinion on a different teething product I would have done so. But I couldn't find a better place to post my opinion on a teething product than here in this section. I am doing this because I wished I would have known about Hyland's teething tablets much sooner. I am sorry that there are no other options but to place this opinion here in the orajel spot. Thank-you for your understanding.

I have never used any homeopathic treatments in my life. But now I am more open to using them and I see the benefits of them. I am far from an expert on the subject of homeopathic remedies, I only know that this remedy works.
What do I use for teething pain? 100 % Natural, Hyland’s Homeopathic Teething Tablets, and if they have a fever I include a dose of any brand of Ibuprofen (this not only reduces fever but assists by reducing the swelling which causes the pain, Acetaminophen does not do this). Cooled “teether’s” also tend to help a fussy babies hurting gums.
Let me go into some more detail on the Hyland’s Homeopathic Teething Tablets.
First, let me tell you how I was introduced to them.
You see I didn’t have them for all 4 of my children. I only found out about them this spring, when my youngest was 3 months old. She started having pain from her little teeth moving around under the gums preparing to come through. Even though her teeth were nowhere in sight, she was having incredible pain from them. While visiting my sister, one of her friends came to visit her. When she saw my sweetie pie in pain, she asked what the matter was and what I had been giving her. I told her only some Ibuprofen. At that time she told me about these wonderful tablets and rushed out to the car to grab a bottle of these miracle pills.
I was concerned by the fact that she wanted me to give my infant a PILL. But she assured me that they dissolved instantly and it wouldn’t be a choking hazard or a cause for concern. Since she was not only a mother, a long time friend of my sister, a nurse, a wife of a Medical Doctor and also a Breast Feeding consultant, I trusted her opinion. After trying them for my self (four times the dose recommended) and waiting an hour to make sure I didn’t keel over dead, I gave two to my wailing infant. Well let me stand up and scream! My little girl, usually being very content and mild personality, had been crying uncontrollably for over 3 hours. She couldn’t sleep or eat because the pain was so terrible even with Ibuprofen. I kid you not, within 2 or 3 three MINUTES after taking these tablets, she had not only stopped her crying but was fast asleep. Needless to say, whenever she has pain associated with teething this is the first thing I give her.
Second the directions for use:
The directions for giving these tablets are to dissolve 2-3 tablets under the tongue (I just put them in her mouth) or in a teaspoon of water, 4 times per day. If he child is restless or wakeful, 2 tablets ever hour for 6 doses or as recommended by a licensed health care practitioner. It also says that the Teething Tablets are very soft and dissolve almost instantly on the tongue. (this I can attest to) And that Children who have been crying or very upset may fall asleep after using this product because the pain has been relieved and your child may rest.
And third the ingredients:
The ingredients for the product is as follows:
Formula: each tablet Contains: Calcarea Phosphorica (Calcium Phosphate) 3X, HPUS; Chamomilla (Chamomile) 3x, HPUS; Coffea Cruda (Coffee) 3x HPUS; and Belladonna 3x, HPUS (Alkaloida 0.0003%), in a pleasant lactose N.F. (Milk Sugar) Base.
Lastly my final assessment:
The only thing I felt was objectionable is the Coffee that is included in it. But after some research I found that Caffeine is used in at least one major brand of pain reducers. And that is because Caffeine has a great natural analgesic affect. This information assured me that this product was 100% natural homeopathic medicine.
I feel that it is safer for me to give this natural medicine to my child, than to give other medications that are potentially more harmful. As with any pain remedy do not give more than the prescribed or recommended dose. I have seen QUICK response to this remedy and like… no I LOVE the results. I feel better about giving my child 100% natural pain relief. These tablets dissolve instantly, have no side effects and really do live up to the claims that they relieve the pain and stop the fussiness. I would recommend these tablets to ANYONE who has a little one with Teething Pain.
