Giveaway: Big smiles and homeopathic teething treatment from Baby Orajel Naturals — $100 Target GC {5.31; US} CLOSED

One of my favorite moments as a new mama was when my baby first smiled up at me. Gas? Reflex? Just messing with me? What did I care? It was a big, toothless, engaging grin, and I ate it up.

That toothless mouth soon filled up with teeth, early on. My firstborn, Mikko, started growing them early, at around 3 months. It was one of his primary skills: growing teeth and hair, every parent's pride. Even through the increased drool and the sharp little white points emerging, his smiles never became any less cute!

Our second baby, Alrik, took his time getting started on teething, but now he's making up for it. At 10 months, he seems to be growing them ALL. At once.

Three sharp ones have popped through on the bottom. (Why three? Why lopsided? Come on, kid, think of the aesthetics.) Two fang-like spaced ones on the top have descended, giving him the moniker Vampire Baby. The middle ones are creeping out to fill the gap.

Vampire baby filling in those front teeth!

Since I know how much tooth pain can hurt (boy howdy!), I want to make sure he's comfortable as he cuts all these new chompers.

Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablets

bottle and box — Baby Orajel Naturals Tablets giveaway

So I was happy to try out the new Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablets with Alrik. I had thought we would be getting a numbing gel, but the tablets we got are actually a homeopathic treatment. Baby Orajel is a well-established brand (#1 for teething), and this is their first foray into homeopathy. I'm glad the bigger companies are getting on board with natural remedies.

Using Chamomilla as one of its key ingredients, Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablets are belladonna-free, benzocaine-free, dye-free, alcohol-free and paraben-free.

tablets in cap — Baby Orajel Naturals Tablets giveaway


The three ingredients with their purpose:

  • Calcarea phosphorica, 3x HPUS — supports dentition
  • Coffea cruda, 3x HPUS — wakefulness and diuresis
  • Chamomilla, 3x HPUS — irritability

HPUS means the ingredients are officially monographed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States.

If you'll remember, there was a kerfuffle recently because a different brand of teething tablets had belladonna, which is a poison in higher doses. Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablets have the other key homeopathic ingredients without the controversial one, which is reassuring. The Chamomlia, in particular, is supposed to help with the fussiness associated with teething. Chamomile flowers have long been used medicinally as an anti-inflammatory to ease discomfort.

Using the tablets

The directions are to dissolve 2-3 tablets (1 at a time) under the baby’s tongue. You can also dissolve them in a teaspoon of water before giving the water to the baby. You can give 2-3 tablets every hour for up to 4 times a day or as recommended by a licensed health care professional.

The tablets feature a quick dissolve rate of about 10 seconds. I found that this is true. I had a little trouble getting them under Alrik's tongue. If you put something in his mouth, he thrusts his tongue out and down, effectively blocking my homeopathic reach.

I'm not sure how legit this is, but I just surrendered to putting them on top of his tongue, and watched him thrust his tongue in and out in confusion, trying to figure out why there was now some sort of white powder coating it. But, they really did dissolve within seconds, so he got the benefit of them regardless of where it started.

I tried one out myself, just to make sure there wasn't some weird taste; there was no taste, which I thought was a good thing. Though I can see how that could be disconcerting to a baby wondering why I'm putting a tasteless, disappearing treat on his tongue!

The bottle is compact and holds a lot of tablets. It's easy to slip into a diaper bag pocket to keep handy. I break them out on car rides when Alrik is screaming, and I'm not sure why (besides the obvious car-seat-jail indignity).

Come on, Mama, let's get this puppy open. Time's a-wastin'.

So is this how you apply it? This does feel good on my gums…

How do they work?

I know many of my readers swear by homeopathy, and I've been given homeopathic treatments by midwives and naturopaths. I believe the basic premise is that small amounts of natural substances can produce healthful results.

With both my kids, I've never been totally sure if their teething is bothering them or not. They have the drool (hoo boy, do they ever!), and the gumming everything in sight, but they haven't had fevers or diarrhea or other symptoms that some people swear are connected to teething.

However, Alrik does have this near-constant expression that we describe as his teething face, as if he's half-grimacing all the time (but in a super cute way!). I'm never sure if I should be medicating him just in case, or if the fact that I can't tell if he's in discomfort means that he's not. (Any insight appreciated!) On the one hand, Alrik will sometimes get upset and start screaming for what we think is no clear reason. On the other hand, I don't want to dope him up with pain meds that he doesn't need.

teething smile

Teething face. Translated: What is going ON in my mouth?!

To that end, I appreciate having a natural, low-intervention way to soothe any discomfort he's experiencing. I can feel confident that the Baby Orajel Naturals aren't doing him any harm, and I'm happy for any beneficial effect he's receiving. I pop one in whenever he seems most uncomfortable, so I'm glad to have them on hand.

Ugh I kinda hate questions like this, to be perfectly honest. I never have a "favorite moment" to answer. How do you pick between first snuggles, first smiles, first words, first steps, and so many other wonderful moments??? For purposes of entering the contest, I'll say the first time he stuck out his tongue, because that was like the first trick we taught him and it was exciting to see him do something intentionally and realize it!

Pulsatilla! It helps my cramps every time!

Mama Jess said...

My favorite mom moment, i thought, happened when my little girl was 9 months old and she crawled up to me and gave me a huge kiss and said "mama" without any prompting for the first slobbery time. However, i then got pregnant with baby number two and had him on March 15th. We've been having a rough go at it and my little girl wasn't too happy, but about 2 weeks ago she came up to us laying on the couch from playing with her blocks and gave him another slobbery kiss and touched his nose and said buubbyaaa (her form of bubba) i burst into tears to see both of my babies so happy. To make it better, he had his first real smile immediately after this.

My favorite moment was when I told my toddler I loved her. She responded back saying I love you. When I asked how much, she replied by stretching her arms wide an saying 3! That was as far as she could count!!! Andthat was a big number. Now today, my toddler all grown up and planning a family of her own, we reflect back on that small statment, that had a huge impact in our lives.

Carmen Van Deursen said...

My first special moment as a new mom was when I knew my son was going to start babbling, just that anticipation and then there it was while just gazing into his face and those little lips moving and at first no sound came out of them. He caught on fast and that sweet little voice came out. I'll never forget it.

My favorite moment was when my daughter took her first step. I was getting so worried because, while she'd pull herself up on the table, she would never let go and take a step. It was our dog that got her to walk for the first time; she took her pacifier and walked a few steps away from my daughter and dropped it on the ground...and my daughter went after it and took two steps. She was more shocked than I was LOL

Best moment, hands down when they fall asleep in your arms, to this day I'm cherishing the days my 6 year old does it, she's my youngest.

one of the most memorable, almost 3 years later is being able to hold him for the first time. He was in the NICU for a few days and i couldn't hold him...it was pretty much magical :)

My husband is prone to ear aches, and the thing that helps the most is just a hot compress.

While I am not biologically a mom my friend refers to me as her son's second mommy. Because from the time he was born until he was 1 year old I lived with her and actively participated in his care. I loved getting up with him at night sitting in the quiet feeding him, changing him and putting him back to bed. Some times I even did this before his mother or father woke up. His mom only knew I had gotten up with him because his diaper was a different color (cloth diapers are great) or a bottle was missing from his night time cooler. She was always grateful for the extra sleep this afforded her, I was grateful for the experience because I may never get to have children myself. Now I help other women who are struggling with their children.

My favorite moment as a new mom, was nursing my baby girl for the first time and not having an issues with her latching at all. I had nothing but problems with our son for the first few weeks trying to establish a good latch and getting him to nurse.

My favorite moments as a new mom were when my daughter would pretend to get mad and she would get this really serious look on her face, stomp her foot and shout "I'm mad!" Haha! I almost died laughing everytime!

My favorite moment would have to be recently in the car. My 4.5 month old son was hungry and used that opportunity to let us know he could say Ma Ma by calling out for me! Granted it was whiny and he was fussing, but it was adorable that he chose that moment to get my attention!

Not a mom but very much into homeopathic treatments! One of the best ones I have recently found is the use of peppermint essential oil to help relieve migraine headaches, or any headache really.

My favorite moment had to be snuggling in the morning as we both woke up and went back to sleep and just snuggled in the mornings.

I loved seeing my daughter smile in response to us for the first time.

Watching my baby laugh in her sleep was my favorite part of becoming a mom just 10 weeks ago. Really just watching her dream at all. She laughs, she looks worried, she coos, it's all too damn sweet. I love it.

Not entering but just wanted to say... My daughter had some awful teething days, and I swear by the homeopathic remedies. They helped her more than anything else! I don't know how the stuff works but it does. :)

One of my favorite moments so far has been laying in bed with my husband, while our son crawls all over us like he's on a jungle gym or scaling mountains.

There are so many moments. But now that my baby is walking and talking and all too quickly growing up, it absolutely melts my heart when she stops and signs "I love you" to me. She'll even do this from across the room.

My son came to us first as a foster child. I’ve had many wonderful moments, but probably one of the most memorable was when he started calling me “Mom”.
