Thanks ever so much - DS is only 12 weeks and is not a happy baby - you were right - giving half a sachet is tricky, but I'll persevere. It seemed to settle him really well this morning before his breakfast, as he is bottle fed now and I guess it hurts his gums? Gosh, I hope this doesn't last too long!!??? XX

If you don't get reults with these I can get hold of some stronger homeopathic stuff called Viburcol from Germany - it's FANTASTIC! lucinda@iris-diagnostics.com

Where has it gone? Ashton and Parsons works miracles within minutes and I only have 2 left to get my 1 year old through the molars! All the chemists have ran out and say they can't order it but don't know why its out of stock. Anyone know why or even how long it's gonna take before its available again?

They did flip all for ds.

Have you tried superdrug?

chancelloroftheexCHEQUERS Tue 20-Jan-09 20:16:03

DD likes it but absolutely loves teetha.

A&P powders worked wonders for my 2 when teething - heartily recommend them.
Natural homeopathic medicine so can't do any harm to try ...... wink

A&P's is cheaper at Savers.

they are briliant.

NatureDoc please stop spamming here. People are asking for advice not adverts. I've reported you post (again, yawn)

The powders were great for my DD but did nothing for my DS. I found flannels soaked in water and semi frozen were great when he was especially sore.

I think they have been discontinued btw, not sure why.

My mum said that on Strictly Come Dancing Austin Healey said it had worked wonders for his twins - maybe that's why it's sold out everywhere? My mum's such a huge strictly fan she practically marched me down to Boots to get some - have to admit it does seem to calm my DS when he's teething!

Hello. Apparently there had been a problem getting them but now......they're back (well in my chemist anyway). The lady behind the counter said that there had been a problem getting them from the manufactors but yesterday when she phoned she was told they are back. SO HURRRRAAHHHH! My DD gets excited when she sees the packets!

I searched for A & P Poweder everywhere, but guess waht? Hubby got them from chemists. Just go to the little chemist around you will definitely find one. They are like gold dust now. You can also order online from boots.co.uk they have in stock now.

Ashton & Parsons infant powders have been redesigned into a new a modern sachet and production is being ramped up following investment in modern high speed machinery. Previously the powder was produced in a traditional paper wrap from machinery from the 1950's that had become unreliable and could not service the demand for the product. So Mums should have no trouble from hereonin getting hold of the product.
