My 3.5 month old son is teething like crazy (seems early!). I'd like to give him Hylands teething tablets, but I am reluctant because of the lactose base it is in. I'm exclusively breastfeeding, with the purpose of keeping him away from cow's milk and any other food for that matter -- so this seems like something I would not want to do until his digestive system is more mature.<br><br>
Anyone have any thoughts or information about this? Thanks!

Humphrey's Teething Tablets are lactose free. We used them after my son spit up the Hylands ones. There is also Hyland's Teething Gel that is lactose free.

I can't use any lactose based tablets for my son either - so for teething we use "Camilia" from Boiron. It's liquid, single doses, comes in a package of 20 doses most of the time.<br><br>
It's 'only' purified water and the homeopathics. Works well for us! It does say for infants older than 4 months, but perhaps you can check with the company for your younger child.

If you eat dairy, he's getting it in the bm so I honestly wouldn't worry about it.

BTW- the Hylands gel has parabens in it... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
