Boots Teething Granules
Advantages: Instant pain relief, handy sachets
Disadvantages: Little tricky to administer
We bought the boots teething powders on recommendation from a friend who had used them and said they worked best out of anything she had tried. As our daughter was teething quite badly now we decided to give these a go as the teething gel we were using wasn't having great effects like it used to.
These boots teething powders are homoeopathic which is great as they are completely natural, they come in small handy sachets in 1 dose sizes in boxes of 20 sachets for £4.99. The small sachets are ideal and i always have a few in the changing bag when we are out and about, quick and easy to give without having to measure out medicine doses.
The first time i gave my daughter one of these it was not very successful as i could not get her to open her mouth wide enough for long enough to tip the contents of the sachet in, hence in went all over her face and looked like she was covered in icing sugar! We persevered and my fiancee was much better at doing it then me, when the powders did get into her mouth you could see it was pretty much instant relief for her. They are tiny tiny granules which dissolve when in the mouth and as they chew and move their mouths around so the powder is spread around their mouth, i guess it must give a numbing feeling all over to provide some relief from the pain.
My daughter now quite happily lays with mouth open whenever she sees us get a sachet out, she must know that this is going to make her feel better. They can only be given every 2 hours and generally the powders will keep the pain at bay for this long and normally lots longer.
I feel these are quite expensive for what they are but a packet can last a fair amount of time depending on how bad the teething is, we use these in conjunction with gel and teething rings etc so are not giving her medicine as such all of the time. Being boots own brand ones is no problem as they do the job just fine and other brands are even more expensive whilst doing the same thing.
A great teething remedy to have when it starts getting bad.
Summary: Excellent teething remedy
