Has anyone used it for teething?? My sister says on the box it says that it will help. Just wondering if anyone has tried it, and if it works.

  • We tried it for colic. But it didn't work any more than anything else. Didn't try it for teething though.

  • Yes, I used it for teething and it works well.
    You can also try Hyland's teething tablets.

  • i use the gentle naturals teething drops (green box with whinnie the pooh on them) they work pretty well hylands teething tablets work great too but our son doesnt do as well on them since they have a small amount of lactose in them and he is lactose intolerant. But they start working right away adn for him the time between he took the tablets and before his tummy would act up was heaven! Dont forget you can doouble team teething with tylenol and another natural teething product

  • Yeah. It made him quiet for about 5 seconds and that was it. I think it was just the taste that kept him occupied lol.
