==Bonjela teething gel==
My little boy is growing up extremely fast four months have already past and unfortunately for him he seems to have been teething the past fortnight. It first start with extreme drooling which then led to rosy red cheeks and an irritable mood which he would snap out of. Fortunately for the both of us I have already purchased this item whilst back in the UK, so it was at hand should it be required.
The Bonjela teething packaging is more or less identical to the adults Bonjela, I would therefore suggest storing them away from each other just in case you accidently pick up the wrong one. The tube is in keeping with the blue and white colour scheme of the original Bonjela. The instructions require you to rub a small amount onto the affected area, this can usually be seen on the gum as a red area. However, this is not always the case, so with a clean finger I apply a small amount of gel onto my finger and massage the gum on both the top and bottom gum. The taste is meant to be banana flavoured, I cannot comment on this as I have a food intolerance with bananas which has created paranoia when faced with banana flavoured items which I will not touch. However, I can comment that the smell is quite sweet but it also has a medical fragrance about it as well.
As soon as the gel is on my babies gum he sucks in his bottom lip and has a right good taste of the Bonjela he doesn't seem to be bothered by it and it instantly calms him from his screaming fit to happily sucking his fingers with his newly soothed gums. It is horrible seeing your little ones in pain but as far this teething gel has come up trumps every time. The relief lasts for a long time I would say up to 2 hours perhaps longer I have only had to put this on once in a 24 hour period but it can be put on every 3 hours if necessary.
The teething gel is suitable from 2 months and is also suitable in adults, perhaps this would be useful in the case of wisdom teeth coming through. Mine haven't come through yet so I could not comment on whether it was as affective for adults as it is with my child. The teething gel comes in 15g tubes which seems to be lasting a long time, it has hardly reduced in size in the two weeks my son has been using it. At present this can be purchased from boots.com for £2.60 and a complimentary tube of 10 multivitamin tablets in berry flavour come with this purchase (perhaps not ideal for parents of babies, but they could be used for yourselves, I suppose). Anyway, I would highly recommend this for any teething babies as it has provided instant relief for my son and his tears soon left and was replaced with a lovely gummy smile.
Summary: Highly recommend
