A friend had this with her when my baby's teething symptoms struck and it worked almost instantly. While I was looking for it over the next week I considered getting another product as it was becoming hard to find however the same instant soothing response when we used it made up my mind.
I was so impressed with how quickly and effectively it works. Most of the time when we've had to give it to him (on a little teaspoon which he takes pretty well) he falls asleep soon after. It's also well priced, around $10.
You can probably get it at a good health food store, wellness centre or some really good chemists. It's worth seeking out!
Gentle homeopathic products with no side effects, reasonably priced
Can be hard to find
This teething powder is definately going to make an appearance with baby #2. I was skeptical at first, but it worked as soon as he'd taken it. We were lucky enough to get onto it quickly and since then we haven't had any troubles with teething. I did find that the powder got a little messey with a baby who realised he could blow it, but it was still better than a liquid and I couldn't think how to improve it.
Really worked, was well priced, better for baby than giving him pamol or bonjela, easily stored/transported (no need to bother refridgerating), he didn't mind the taste, it was easy to find inventive ways to get it into him (on a finger, nipple or teat!)
Powder can be messey
Questions & Answers
Is the lactose used from the cow? I ask because my bub and I are on a dairy free diet but is still breastfeeding so I'd like to know if I can use this product. I've just purchased a bottle and am worried it will ruin the elimination diet.
Hi, my 4-month-old twins are teething. I want to go natural and use waleda. Is 4 months too young for the powder?
My girl started at 4 months too. I used it and never had a problem. Maybe contact them on their website if you're worried.
Lactose ingredient in this product seems a little bit controversial to me. The last type of food I want to give to my baby is sugar and if I use this product it will be the first one I will be feeding her. My question is: why is lactose even used in this teething powder? Thanks.
Lactose is the predominant sugar in breast milk so it's not controversial to be using it in the teething product at all. It makes sense to use this to give it some sweetness rather than fructose/glucose/sucrose for example. Babies will actually be able to tolerate it extremely well.
This is a homeopathic product, so the ONLY ingredient is lactose, which is a sugar and not coincidentally, another treatment for teething recommended by GPs is to give your baby some sugar water because it distracts them from their pain. With this product you enjoy they feeling of having spent $14 on 60g powdered milk sugar, or which is around $230 a kilo!
