The FDA issued a warning about it some time ago http://www.webmd.com/parenting/baby/news/20110505/fda-warns-about-teething-medication  I used it once with my baby and it's the only thing that helped his teething. I feel badly using it with this warning and I haven't used it since. He is going crazy with the pain though! I've done Hyland's tablets, gel, chamomile, calc carb, amber beads... ect.

Once, ds hatted it and it made it worse anyway, but never will again after reading about it years ago.

Nope.    It made her more upset so we did the gentle naturals teething drops with more success.

Nope...our pediatrician told us not to. Nor did we use those teething tablets that people swear by. Neither are good for a baby. The tablets are even worse than the orajel because they contain belladonna which can be harmful to LOs.

The best remedy for teething is either Tylenol or Motrin (if the baby is over 6 months)

Used it with my oldest as she had a terrible time with teething.  But I also think that was way before the FDA warning.  She is 15 yrs. old now.  My middle daughter (13) and my youngest son (6.5) didn't have much trouble and I don't remember using it with either of them.

 I used it with no problems but honestly I don't think it worked that well.  What worked best for us was Motrin and teething feeders.

 I've used Hyland's Teething Tablets and it worked fine, no issues, reactions...nothing negative.
