Hyland's Teething Tablets
My 13 month old has more teeth coming so we have been giving her 3 of these tablets at night before bed. Are these safe to use on a daily basis? I have heard that the belladonna contained in the tablets are a sleep aid and you can possible overdose on it. The pills don't seem to make her drowsy - I usually give them to her about an hour before bed time. We have only been using them at night.

I used the Hyland Teething Tablets for my daughter as she struggled through her days/nights of teething. She did great with them and was grateful that I "accidently" heard Kelly on Regis & Kelly comment that she had used the very tablets on her kids! She said "...without Hyland Teething Tables I would have gone CRAZY with my kids teething... I thought I would give them a try! They helped with all but her 2 yr molars....the only thing that helped was a LARGE DOSE of PATIENCE there...smile....sooo for what it is worth...we loved them and they didnt make my daughter sleepy either! I had also asked the local pharmacist if they were good AND safe to use and he said YES! Best of Luck to you!

J., please check with your doctor about this. While Belladonna is used in several medecines including one for colicky babies and does have its uses, the plant itself is a deadly poison. It is probably fine but it is always good advice to double check with your doctor to be sure.

I used these with my middle child in 2002 and than when i found out i was pregnant with my last(2004)i made sure i bought these.I talked to my dentist about them and he said follow what it says and you'll be fine.
I loved this product.I personally feel it works better than Orgel(sp)and my dr didn't recommend using orgel.I know in the Meadville,Greenville,Hermitage area you can find them at WalMart.They also have a web sit.I think it's
not sure about the web site but all their products are good.

I've never heard of these tablets, but if you are adhering to the dosing instructions on the package you should be okay. I would recommend consulting with your pediatrician to be sure.

I always used them as needed, even if that means daily. I've never had any problems with it negatively affecting my kids. I love the product.
