I wasn't sure where to post this because it's not really directly related to breastfeeding (other than the fact that I woke up horribly engorged this morning because of this). But, have any of you tried the teething tablets? They're homeopathic, you place them under the baby's tongue, they dissolve and supposedly help with any pain the infant is feeling. Well, I gave a dose of these to DD last night because she kept chewing on her hands, my fingers, etc and crying out in pain. She's been running a low grade fever too, her ped says she's teething. I was desperate to help her and Tylenol wasn't helping at all. So, I sent DH to get some of the teething tablets that a friend just raves about. Anyway, DD slept for 12 hours after taking a dose of those!! Does anyone know if they are truly safe? Have any of you used them before?
I was glad to give DD the rest she needed but I'm afraid to try those again (I won't be trying them again until I speak with her doc) because it just doesn't seem normal to me for a baby to sleep that long at one time! I just wanted to see if any of you had a similiar experience. DD usually sleeps a lot at night, anywhere from 6-10 hours. But, this was by far the longest stretch she's ever gone.
Well, any feedback would be appreciate, as always!
