As the little one playfully tried to bite through my finger today, I was reminded of one thing… teething sucks. Then I thought of the magic little pill that makes it all easier, Hyland's Teething Tablets.
Ease of use
Once in the child's mouth, the tablet dissolves very quickly. They recommend placing the tablet under the tongue, however if you've tried to look under a baby's tongue, you know how difficult that can be. I've found that simply getting them in the mouth is good enough. The tablet dissolves very quickly.
Hyland's is homeopathic, which from what I understand means that the active ingredients are heavily diluted. There have been claims of adverse side effects, however we have experienced no problems. Hyland's has tried to ease any fears, but then again, that info is coming from the manufacturer, for what that's worth.
Keep in mind, I am definitely not a medical professional, and each child is different, so take my experience with a grain of salt.
Within approximately 5-10 minutes, there is a noticeable shift in mood. The crankiness decreases, and sanity of the parents increases. The tablets seemed to be more useful for the three year old (back when she wasn't three) versus the little one, although the little one is still in the midst of teething.
