  • They work pretty well. The main ingredient in both teething and "calming" tablets is chamomile. It helps take the "edge" off of the emotional upset of being in pain. You still need to use pain medicine to take away the pain though.

  • I've heard great things about the teething tablets, although I never used them b/c my pediatrician advised against them. She said they contain trace amounts of narcotics. However, other moms informed me that the amount is so incredibly tiny that it can't have any affect, even if your baby ate the whole bottle. I still stayed away from them to be on the safe side.

  • I love them!! I get the Hylands Teething Tablets from Walmart. I use them only when he is really fussy. Of course with everything there is a risk if you dont follow directions.

  • We love the teething tablets the nerve tonic (calming tablets) was not as affective for my little ones.
