Has anyone tried these?
What do you think?

I haven't tried them for my kids but several of my friends have and they love them! They say they definitely work.

I have tried them with my 6 months old daughter. She has 4 teeth. It works. I am still wondering if I should let the tablet melt on her gum or just let her swallow it.

They are the only thing that worked for my daughter and she loved them. She would not go to bed before we gave her some.

My son is 6 months and the tablets work great and he loves them. He is like a little baby bird when I give them to him, mouth open wide.

My son is 18 months old, and we STILL use these. He has always just swallowed them and they still work. I LOVE THESE THINGS. I didn't like giving him Tylenol or Advil, and never had to once I started using these tablets (other than when he got 3 molars in, then I gave him some Tylenol followed by Hylands, and the Hylands worked until the Tylenol kicked in). He even likes them, it's the only thing he'll still let me feed him. I tell every last single pregnant person I know about these things.

Yes, we used them for our daughter as recommended by other moms and they work great!

We've tried them too, but can't really say that we saw any difference. Other friends swear by them.

these worked awesome for my daughter.,.& they were way easier than trying to measure out Tylenol w/ a screaming baby ..the only thing is that when you get to the molars you will want something stronger like Motrin ..other than that I tell EVERYONE to use these!!

These are amazing! I could actually see the pain leave my child's face. Every baby shower gift I give will have these in included.

My pediatrician advised NOT to use these tablets, as they contain opiate derivatives. Motrin and Tylenol at the appropriate age seemed to work well, as did chilled teething toys.

We have used these and Camilia and I think the Camilia helped more. Camilia comes in single dose vials, so it is more expensive and you will go through a box much faster than a bottle of Hylands tablets. I think the tablets actually made our baby more excitable, so I only used them (after realizing what was happening) when she was not near nap or bedtime. Good luck! Teething is rough and the drool rash is the worst part!

I have used these and Camilla too, and found both effective. My son seems to like both equally. With the tablets, I put them on his tongue and hold my finger there for a couple of seconds until they dissolve.

In response to an earlier post, I'm afraid your pediatrician is misinformed. Opiate derivatives come from poppy straw, which are used in many analgesics, but not these teething tablets (see list of indredients below). The most common opiate derivaties are codeine and mophine which may be found in many analgesics (for example, while the active ingredient in Tylenol is acetaminophen, Tylenol 3 also contains codeine; while Motrin is ibuprofen and Vicoprofen contains both ibuprofen and hydrocodeine). Other opiate derivatives include codeine phosphate, codeine hydrochloride, codeine sulphate, codeine alkaloid, morphine alkaloid, morphine hydrochloride, morphine sulphate, morphine tartrate, ethylmorphine hydrochloride, diamorphine hydrochloride, pholcodine alkaloid, and dihydrocodeine tartrate.

According to the hylands website, Hylands Teething tablets contain the following:
Calcarea Phosphorica 3X HPUS - supports dentition
Chamomilla 3X HPUS - for irritability
Coffea Cruda 3X HPUS - for wakefulness and diuresis
Belladonna 3X HPUS (0.0003% Alkaloids) - for redness and inflammation
In a base of Lactose (milk sugar) NF.

Pre-emptively, some people are concerned when they see belladonna as an ingredient, but according to their website, the amount in Hylands teething tablets is less than the amount used in many other medications (see for more information).

Mrs.P says:
if your read anything about homeopathics, you would see that the contain ultra microdoses of the ingredient! the 4x, 6x etc. means that 1 drop of the ingredient has been added to 1oz. of liqiud, and then shaken, then you take 1 drop of that mixed liquid, and again until you reach 4x,6x etc. the higher the number the actually less there is of the ingredient. Your doctor would of course advise against this because he doesnt know anything about natural medicine

We used them also on our two kids 9 months and 2 years (she like them) we didn't really see much difference, but our kids don't really show they are teething. The Opiate comment above bothers me. I tend to trust the ladies at our health food store who have always helped with us working around things like tylenol and they recommend these and the forte 4 kids tablets. I say they are safe my daugter ate a whole bottle one day I called poisen control and they said no big deal. Give them a try they might work wonders for your baby. One thing my kiddos really liked was a cold wet wash clothe. Good Luck

W/ our first child we tried all the orajel, etc. She hated that b/c her tongue or lips would get numbed. These were all that worked for her and since then it's all we've used for our boys. Works great, love that they're homeopathic.

we have used these but didn't like the idea of giving our little one belladonna. it's common name is deadly nightshade for obvious reasons. we used the hyland's colic tablets with equal results and less worry. i think it must be the chamomile that helps soothe fussy little ones. i HIGHLY recommend them to all my new mommy friends. plus my baby boy makes yummy noises when he gets them. Hyland's Colic Tablets, 125 tablets (Pack of 3)

don't work. wish they did! I have 4 kids and they have all been TERRIBLE teethers. Maybe they work if your baby is a great teether... Oh- and my son ate a whole bottle once because they're basically just sugar pills. My ex-MOL made me take him to the ER, they looked at me like I was crazy. They're useless and contain basically sugar/milk base. Placebo perhaps? Maybe the baby likes the sugar pill and calms for a moment because it's new and interesting? The best remedy for teething? Teeth. Sorry ;)

My daughter loves them. She's almost 2 and cutting her second molars, and they work well.

LOVED these. Baby boy was a bear during teething, and these made him "bear"-able. (Haha) Babe #2 due in August, will be using them again. Works great right alongside Motrin or Tylenol, or all by itself.

Save your money on these tablets. I have an excellent homeopathic remedy that you can make yourself using what is already available in your home:
Using two jars, fill one jar with cold bottled water, and the other with cold tap water. Using an eyedropper, carefully put one
drop of the tap water into the bottled water jar and stir. Then put a few drops of this diluted solution on your child's gums.
It works great!

I think they're bunk... but I tend to think homeopathy is bunk. I think whether or not they work may partly depend on parents expectations and beliefs. If you think homeopathy works, and you think these will work, then you might well see improvement in your child. If you think homeopathy is bunk, you might see no difference.

My mother in law is big into homeopathy and gave us some of these. My husband remembers getting homeopathic treatments as a kid - it was a no sugar/candy household so they loved it. They are basically sugar pills. I suspect the little bit of sweet + the attention from mom has more to do with any improvement than the actual ingredients.

They're not very expensive and they won't hurt, so there is no harm in trying... but I think they are bunk. We did try them with my son, as well as the colic tablets - neither seemed to do anything. But Motrin worked wonders when he was teething. My girls never seemed to have problems with teething.

We just brought the hyland teething gel two weeks ago thinking we could apply it directly to the pain point. We forgot to factor in a scream crying child. We immediately went back and brought the tablets. Baby eats it happily and it subdues his cries.
