Teething is no fun for little ones and it's something my son is experiencing now. At night time I like to give him the gel based teething porducts as I find these easier to put on at night when he is calm and relaxed and it's become a bit of a ritual in the last couple of weeks/months to apply this before bedtime. However, during the day I like to give him something a bit more natural and without as much sugar and so I use these teething granules.
I had heard about teething granules from various other mums who all swore by them and so I decided to give them a try as even though I'm not an earth mother and believe in medicine and drugs to cure my kids, as this is something I have been giving my little boy lots of everyday I wanted to try something a bit more natural and good for him.
Nelsons teetha is a homeopathic remedy specially designed for the soothing and calming relief of the symptoms of teething, thus calming both baby and mother. According to an article I read, "Homeopathy is a system of medicine which stimulates the body's own natural healing processes. It has been used for many years as a safe and side-effect free treatment, suitable for all the family at any age."
I thought these would be a good way of helping his gums without always having to put medicine in his mouth, especially because at this time he needs the dosage every 2 hours or so because new teeth are sprouting all over the place.
The granules come in little paper and foil packets so they are individually wrapped for each dose which is nice meaning you don't need to measure out a certain amount or anything like that, it is all done for you. I like that they are in a foil pack too because this keeps them fresh and I like to store some in my nappy bag just to have some in case of emergencies. The granules are fairly small but are more granule like than sugar say, they are plain white and look a bit like drugs to me but, hey, they work. In order to use them you just need to tip the sachet out into your baby's mouth. This is a little easier said than done and it took a bit of getting used to but I try to make sure that I get some on my finger too so I can rub it about his gums and really get it to the places it needs to go.
I like that these granules target the whole mouth and not just a specific spot, that way I know with a lot of teeth coming at once he is fairly well treated. The little sachet contains 300mg of granules and this has 6c homeopathic potency of Chamomilla. The chamomilla is known to sooth and calm and these do work well on my little boy as a little while after using he no longer chews his finger or looks in as much pain as he has been so I think they are doing the job.
A box of 24 sachets costs £4.99 and I definitely recommend them if your little one is teething.
