Has anyone tried those teething tablets by hylands?

I read an artical at the doctors office that stated they were recalled. Did you ever use them and have a negative reaction with your baby? I used them with both my babies and had no reaction! It always seemed to help them with the discomfort.

  • I used them too and loved them. We did notice that when we gave them to her it would help her and make her sleepy...then we noticed they started making her hyper. Not sure if that has anything to do with it. I stopped using them when the recall took place. I plan on picking up some more in hopes that they are ok and still available

  • i tried them with my 2 youngest and they did not help one bit. i even tried them myself when i had a bit of a tooth ache and they did not take any of the pain away.

  • I know before I used them with my first daughter I did bring them into the doctors office and asked the doc if they were alright for her to have them and they told me yes that it would help out with the teething discomfort!

  • I found this:

    "Adverse events have been reported but the FDA has said that a conclusive link has NOT been determined. The company, in working with the FDA, has identified manufacturing processes of Teething Tablets that can be improved to ensure uniformity in dosage. As a homeopathic product, Hyland’s Teething Tablets have a wide margin of safety that protects consumers from harm.

    After in-depth analysis, a comprehensive review of the company’s adverse event report log, and more than 85 years of safe usage, the company is confident that Hyland’s Teething Tablets are safe for infants and toddlers."

  • I used them with both of my grandkids. They were a life saver. I wish they had been around when my oldest was teething for 2 solid years.. The only thing I noticed was in the evening they could make it more difficult for them to get to sleep.
