Pros: homeopathic, easy to use, effective, baby likes them, affordable, no risk of overdose
Cons: effects don't last as long as the recommended dosage times.
We used Hyland's teething tablets with our older girls (now 10 and 6) and I was so happy they brought them back. I have been recommending the teething tablets to other parents for 10 years now! Our new little guy is 7 months old and the teething tablets have been a godsend. When I see he is have teething pains (he's drooling a lot, chewying his hands, etc.) I give him 2 tablets orally and within a few minutes he is calm and happy again. I rarely feel the need to give him 3, I will save the bigger dosage for when he is actually cutting teeth. The directions say to only give them to baby 4 times a day, which is not enough to really keep him pain free. His teething hasn't gotten really bad yet (he still doesn't have teeth), but when it does I will probably give him the teething tablets more often than the recommended dosage. That's what I did years ago with my girls and there were no ill effects Because they are homeopathic I feel comfortable giving baby the teething tablets as needed when he is in a lot of pain. Another option I will try is using the tablets along with the gel when it's really bad.
Overall, we love Hyland's teething tablets and highly recommend them!!
