Last year, Hyland's teething tablets were discontinued. I use Humphrey's teething tablets. The FDA has issued a warning regarding giving Benzocaine (the active ingredient in Orajel) and its rare link to methemoglobinemia.
So what's a mother to do with a teething baby? Here's a list of some of the things I do.
- Give my daughter rings that she can chew on. I try to keep one ring in the fridge at all times.
- I give my daughter Humphrey's teething tablets. These are not the ones that were recalled, and they work wonderfully for my daughter!!
- Last resort. I give Tylenol or Ibuprofen. Not my preferred choice. I only give if the above have not been effective.

This is what I have done that works for Charis.
