Used this item on 1 out of 4 of my children
I do not recommend this product to any one. I used this on the youngest of my 4 children he is now 4 years old with rotten teeth. I used bonjela on my other 3 children with no teeth problem at all. This has also been recalled and taken off Australian shelves (and so it should be) thank goodness they are his baby teeth.
I have used this product before however I have now decided to discontinue because in my opinion it's very risky given that the product has been recalled due to safety concerns in America. It has not yet been recalled in Australia. Hylands have been great about it and have offered me a full refund.
Used these prior to them being recalled and my experience with them was great. Worked wonders for my son's eye teeth and molars. If he is handling his teeth fine then I don't bother giving him anything or I go with natural remedies first (cold washer, ice blocks etc). Over use of anything can't be good.
Best homeopathic medication for teething
After trying other products with no luck a friend recommended these. I am very impressed with the effect. I am not a believer in homeopathy but after having a teething baby I will try anything. My little man actually loves having these. Sometime I find I will end up needing regular medication such as paracetamol or ibuprofen but not as often if I use these tablets first.
Double trouble perfect for twins
Having twins these tablets have been a life saver on many nights and avoided needing panadol or neurofen
Highly recommend, I've only really used when nothing else seemed to work
One of our twins needed the tablets more than the other and never had any issues with reactions etc
Very good price too
How homeopathy works
Negative reviews due to product containing belladona are a little silly. These teething tablets are homeopathic. Homeopathy is an alternative medicine whereby exceedingly small, trace amounts of substances are given to a patient to allow their systems to counteract them and thus providing benefits to other symptoms they may have. For example the highly toxic venom from an amazonian Bushmaster (lachesis), a snake known for its aggressiveness, is commonly used in patients suffering from a range of symptoms from menopause to anxiety. The doses ...used are so minute that you have more danger of being poisoned by the fluoride in city drinking water than you do with the belladona in this product. *0.0000000000003% belladona a in a tic-tac sized tablet, compared with 0.000007% fluoride (an equally poisonous substance) in town supply water (and we all drink way more than one drop at a time). This is a roughly 4 million times higher concentration yet is completely safe. Poisons are only poisons with sufficient dosage. After all, according to the American Chemistry Society, just 6 litres of bottled water at once is enough to kill an adult human.
My daughter seemed to settle well with this but broke out in rash. The rash was that bad that she is on antibiotics now. did my bit of research it contains belladonna and its been recalled couple of years ago... somehow it's back on the supermarket shelves? Please be aware of what you give to your little ones. I do not recommend this product to anyone.
easy to use, dissolves immediately
Couldn't have survived without them
I used these tablets for my second child (I wish I knew about them for my 1st, have ordered from USA for my youngest). They are a life saver, the dissolve almost instantly and work to ease pain and calm the child so quickly. I am not one yo use panafol on my kids all the time so loved a natural alternative. I tell anyone who will listen how good these are
Reliable, fast acting
Hard to get
A great product
These tablets are great, they dissolve instantly on the baby's tongue so can be used from a young age. I have used with my son and now am using with my baby daughter with great results.
Am shocked with the reviews about safety issues, obviously they don't understand homeopathic medication.
The way it works is they take 1 dose of belladonna and put it in water, then take 1 drop of that water and put in water, and so on...so by the time it gets to the dose that is used, there actually isn't any of the ingredient at all just traces.
...They then put the tablets in the bottle and just drop the required amount in, hardly dangerous. A child could swallow the whole bottle and it would still only be one dose. That is proper homeopathy and i'm very sure thats what they would do at hyland's. Cheap and effective, makes you wonder why it costs $12 and not $5.
I have a daughter who was horrible at teething. I would give her 3 of these tables that would fizz up and disolve in her mouth and would provide nearly instant relief for her, they are a natural product which is great. The bottle is plastic so there is no need to worry about broken glass. I have used and recommend these to other who have also found good results.
Small tablets that disovle and easy for the baby to take. A cheap and alternative way to help woth teething.
Heaps of tables come out at once. Spelling mistake on the box. Not all chemist stock them.
these tablets work well, if your child wont take them as a tablet they can be dissolved on a teaspoon with a little water and they cant taste it.
It worked a treat the few times we needed to use them.
These tablets were great when needed.
My daughter always vomited if I didn't dissolve them first so they must taste or feel funny for that split second it takes to dissolve.
It works well. When my son started cutting his first tooth at 2 months (very early) i wanted a safe and natural product. This was the only product out there. It amazingly dissolved straight away. Didn't need to worry about him choking on it. He enjoyed the texture of it in his mouth.
Works well. Dissolves straight away. Natural Homeopathic remedy for teething. Prefer this over liquid products due to ease of administering to a young baby. Can be given from 2 months (as confirmed by Hyland's). No risk of overdose as it's a homepathic remedy. Great!
Tiny tablets come out a few at a time.
My daughter would hold her tongue out in readiness when she saw the bottle! They seemed to work quite well,and they are safe enough to dose BEFORE the teething pain starts. If my daughter was having a few bad days I would just give her some tabs before her nap time so she could sleep though. There are plenty of tabs in the bottle so you never run out - I still have heaps leftover. Awesome product, a must for every baby first aid kit.
Easy to use, very effective, great price
Can be hard to find at all chemists
Really love these tablets, they work quickly and provide instant pain relief when teething. I find these tablets work well during the day but I often give baby panadol at night as this is when the pain really kicked in.
Easy to use, good value and provides instant relief. Homeopathic product.
Doesn't have a childproof cap.
These teething tablets are absolutely first class. The minutes my toddler started to cry from the pain I would give her three and she would fall back to sleep for the rest of the night. I am so very grateful for these little gems. My child didn't give any trouble to take them, indeed after she has the first one she opens her mouth for the second and third!
Fantastic, they really do relieve the pain
Questions & Answers
This product has been recalled in America due to safety issues. Hylands have been happy to provide a refund. Just wondering if anyone knows when it will be recalled in Australia? Thanks
I haven't heard that they are recalling in Australia. I stopped using our supply just in case. It's not worth the risk.
Where to buy these tablets between Hervey Bay and Brisbane QLD?? Unable to locate at numerous pharmacies.
They have them at my local Good Price pharmacy at Booval, Ipswich.
