Natural Quick Relief for Teething Trauma
Member Name: kellface
Advantages: Natural ingredients, Almost instant relief, Ease of use.
Disadvantages: Some may say the price. But for me it's worth it.
Ask any parent, or your own what teething means to them and you will be told stories of hours of crying, lack of sleep, frustration and upset for parent and child. Teething can be a horrible time for any little one, and it can be equally as traumatic for any parent. You all know what it's like having a really bad toothache, the problem with babies is they are super sensitive to pain and obviously don't understand what is going on.
My little Freya is 4 months old now and has been teething for a good few weeks now. I was using Bonjella for a couple of weeks but it just didn't seem to be giving her any relief from her symptoms. I was recommended by a friend of mine to try Nelsons - Teetha but I've always been quite sceptical about herbal remedies and just assumed it was a load of tosh. How wrong was I? Whilst shopping in Wilkinsons for some toiletries I wandered around the baby aisle just about to purchase yet another tube of Bonjella when I noticed the box of Teetha that my friend had recommended.
What's in the box?
6 packs of 4 sachets are included in the box, each sachet contains 300mg of teething granules.
WARNING: NELSONS TEETHA CONTAINS LACTOSE SO MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR LITTLE ONES WITH AN INTOLERANCE TO IT.
How much is it?
Costing just under £5 for a box of 24 sachets it may seem quite costly but it is totally worth it for the relief it gives my little girl. I originally bought Nelsons - Teetha from Wilkinsons for £4.96 but it is currently on offer in Boots in the 3 for 2 priced at £4.99 so I've stocked up on a few boxes at the moment. I go through a box a week at the moment, some days are worse than others to be honest but £5 a week is a small price to pay for the happiness of Freya. It also means that she is in less pain therefore cries less - meaning she gets a bit more sleep.
What the heck's Chamomilla?
I did a bit of research online and was quite surprised at the amount of things that Chamomilla is used for. It is called German Chamomile and is used on it's own or with other herbs for a range of ailments including Ear ache, PMS, Stress and Anxiety, Colic, Labour Pains and of course in Nelsons - Teetha for Teething pain. It is believed that Chamomilla is especially good for people who are extremely sensitive to pain which is why it's so good for babies. Most people will know of Chamomilla in it's other form - Chamomile which people drink as tea etc.
How do you use this Teetha stuff then?
The box contains 24 300mg sachets of teething granules which are the perfect amount for your little one. You simply tear open the sachet and pour into your babies mouth. Their tongue will play with the powder mixing it with their saliva which in turn will swill around their mouth and gums giving almost instant relief. When Freya is really suffering and going crazy - i.e crying a hell of a lot it's easy for me to pop the granules in her mouth and for her to do the rest. It was far more awkward before trying to rub Bonjella on her gums when she was screaming her head off so this is absolutely perfect.
The dosage stated on the back of the box is 1 sachet every 2 hours but no more than 6 sachets a day in total. I use probably 3 a day for Freya she seems to suffer more at night time from the symptoms of her teething so I normally give her one around tea time and then one before bed so she is able to get a decent amount of sleep.
Is it really that good?
Yes, it really is and I'd recommend all parents who have little ones that are currently teething. It really is brilliant stuff. Instead of the awkwardness of trying to stick your finger in your babies mouth to rub on creams or cover dummies in it to sooth those gums, the powder tastes nice and works with your babies saliva to cover the whole of the mouth giving almost instant relief. Some people will complain that the price is quite steep but I think it's worth it for your little one to be happy and pain free.
Comparing it to Bonjella is easy for me to do now, I probably would have said differently a while ago as all I knew was Bonjella I really didn't think that any kind of herbal remedy would work but I was proved very wrong. One of the best things apart from the natural ingredients of course, is the ease of use. Tearing open a sachet and pouring into your babies mouth is a darn sight easier than trying to rub gel on their gums with your finger or trying to pour a decent amount onto a teething dummy. No mess, no fuss with almost instant relief and you know that with it's natural ingredients that it's good for your little one.
Summary: Natural quick relief.
