Talking Teething with Baby Orajel Naturals (plus a Giveaway)
Teething has to be one of the hardest things about raising a baby… Right behind sleeping and eating. And then of course there’s the really difficult stuff that comes as they get older, but when they are babies, the process of getting teeth is terribly painful for both child and parent.
We were lucky that Jack and Zoe didn’t get their first tooth until they were just over a year old, each. At that point, they were somewhat able to tell us if something was bothering them, and where exactly the bothering was coming from-which was helpful since they weren’t big droolers either.
Beau is now 6 months old and it’s looking like he probably won’t get teeth for a while yet either (which I’m totally fine with, especially because I’m breastfeeding). I’m considering ordering an amber teething necklace for him because I have only heard great things, but I have a box of things ready for him just in case. We’re prepared with the usual arsenal to combat the pain and discomfort: Frozen washcloths, teethers (though my kids never liked them), biscuits, and of course Orajel Natural Teething Tablets.
We used the regular, quick dissolving Baby Orajel Teething Tablets with Jack and Zoe, and they always seemed to relieve their agitation. I’m personally happy to see that Orajel has come out with a new, natural version that not only uses chamomile as a main ingredient, but they are also Alcohol-Free, Paraben-Free, Dye-Free, Benzocaine-Free and Belladonna-Free. We were able to use them on a random mouth sore that Jack got that was bothering him when he was eating, and they really helped.
While I’m happy waiting for Beau to get his first teeth, it’s nice to know that there’s a natural option to help him with the agitation that comes with teething.
I’ve teamed up with BabyCenter to give away two packs of Baby Orajel Naturals, plus a BabyCenter tote bag to one winner.
