My lo is really suffering at the moment... Neal's yard teething crystals don't seem to help much and I didn't want to rely on the hardstuff (ibuprofen etc, lol!) too much to get her through! Any thoughts?
Thanks for your replys, I think I am going to get one! Jareth, I am just not comfortable with using meds regulary and like Loopymumsy I just want to use it when it gets REALLY bad (HV didn't seem keen on meds for babies she didn't say why and I heard something about calpol being linked to asthma...not read up on that in more detail though!) Where did everyone get theres? Thank you!
All I said was is that I don't want to rely on meds toomuch, not that I am going to withold them all together! If I gave my lo meds everytime I thought her teeth "possibly" could be bothering her I would be giving her them regularly, and that is something I'm just not comfortable with, each to there own and all that! I would rather give her something cold to chew on a lots of cuddles if her teeth are niggling at her. And of course I am going to give calpol to control a high temperature! And Widowwadman how do you KNOW that the amber necklaces are just "woo"? Have you seen scientific studies to back this up? Just interested!
I didn't say that anyone was suggesting withholding medicine. My point was that if they need the medicine, if they are in pain - they should have it. Otherwise, they don't need medicine. Amber necklaces are not medicine.
