Hi,<br><br>
My 5.5 mo old DD is teething and I bought Hyland's teething tablets for her. However I see that the inactive ingredient is Lactose N.F (I don't know what N.F stands for).<br><br>
My DD has shown dairy allergy symptoms (I gave her a milk wash on her face and legs and she had red bumps for a short while). I have come to understand that she may be reacting to the whey and casein proteins....<br><br>
But - Will these tablets be safe for her? Does anyone know? TIA.

I don't know if they would be safe, but once I found out DD#2 had a dairy allergy I stopped the teething tablets. <a href="http://www.boironusa.com/products.aspx?pageid=32&pcat=6&pcat2=0&prodid=14" target="_blank">This</a> was recommended to me by a friend. I never tried it, but it is liquid and supposedly only has the homeopathic medicine and not any added ingredients.<br><br>

She's less likely to be sensitive to lactose, most babies with sensitivities are reactive to the protein (casein, whey) and not the sugar (lactose). BUT...I didn't want to risk it! When I discovered my second son's dairy sensitivity, I cut ALL forms of dairy from my diet, not just the proteins. So I never gave him the teething tablets.

We use <a href="http://www.walgreens.com/store/store/product/product_details.jsp?id=prod4185937" target="_blank">Humphrey</a>'s teething strips which don't contain lactose.
