I live in the UK and am visiting my family in the US, and my brother just showed me these Camilia things they use for their baby for teething.  In these single dose plastic tube things.  Do you all use these? Is there something else similar I can look at as well? I'm just thinking, if you can buy it not in single doses, it would be cheaper.  In the UK we have these little packets of powder that's some sort of chamomile, I think it might be similar but they don't seem to really work.

Hi there - Camilia and all of the Boiron brand homeopathics are very popular where I am in Canada. I can even buy them at my regular mainstream grocery store. But none of my American friends have ever heard of Camilia so that's cool that you were able to find it. We swear by the stuff. I've never seen it in a larger format unfortunately. Older babies love the little tube though, it makes it more interesting to administer and is a great distraction from their irritation and fun to chew on (closely supervised of course as they are a serious choke hazard). My older son makes me fill them with water so he can have "medicine" like his baby brother.

Happy mumma to my boys Henny Tom (Nov 30, 2008), Arlo Odie (Oct 5, 2010), and baby SISTER! due mid-Dec 2014.

Hi! I am in Los Angeles and Camilia is pretty easy to find at stores like Whole Foods. When Hyland's Teething Tablets were recalled we switched over to Camilia and have had pretty good results. The fluid is easy to administer and the little tubes are easily transportable. I keep a few in my purse, a few in the diaper bag, etc... Usually within a few minutes of giving DD a dose I notice that her teething symptoms lessen. My only issue with Camilia is the little bit of plastic you have to twist off to open the tube. It's just the right size to present a choking hazard so I have to make sure to dispose of it immediately!


Best wishes!!!
