Is the regular Origel okay for my teething daughter?

We don't have any of the baby Origel stuff and she is getting super grumpy. =[ Would it be okay to let her have the adult origel?

  • NEVER use any medicine YOU would take for your LO!!!! ALWAYS use meds made for infant or age appropriate meds!

  • don't even use baby orajel...get some teething tablets or drops...the orajel just toughens their gums and makes the teething process even harder...

  • I agree with anon. Get some Hyland's teething tablets, and if she gets super grumpy give her a little infant's tylenol for the pain.
