Best teething gel/powder?

Tigger001 Fri 08-Dec-17 00:33:59

We are using detinox gel which is working well on our 4 month old DS. We also had anbesol oil recommended to us, so hubby bought some but it is 96% alcohol so I'm not sure if im happy to use it so haven't so far. But if your ok with that apparently it's really good as it's an oil it easier to apply and soak in to gums rather than DS trying to suck it off my finger lol

Following as my four month old has firmly started teething! He HATED Dentinox when I tried that - anyone else's the same?!

I've found that my son loves the taste of the dentinox and hates the taste of bonjela with a passion 🤣

I'm using Ashton and parsons on my 4 month old teethy ds. Seems to be helping and he doesn't mind the taste too much smile

I was you going to give that a try bit it contains lactose and my son's lactose intolerant I've been told it's really good as well typical

Go to a health food shop and ask for kamomilla homeopathic globules. Exactly the same ingredient as Ashtons + Parson's but usually produced without lactose - ask them.

My 4mo DS is also teething and we're using dentinox teething gel and cool teething rings to ease his pain!

Thanks Bertiebotts will give that a try! We give a teething ring a try tonight and it seemed to ease the pain a bit

If you put whatever lidocaine based gel/liquid on a baby toothbrush it’s nice and soft for them to chew and won’t hurt their little gums and will get the gel/liquid to exactly where it’s hurting them. You can also put them through dishwasher or what ever sterilising,method you use.
