Dangers of Homeopathic Teething Gels

To help with teething pain, we recommend cold teething toys. If you can feel a tooth popping through the gums, and your child seems to be in significant pain, you could also use a weight-appropriate dose of acetaminophen or, for children over six months old, Ibuprofen. We do not recommend the use of any over-the-counter teething gels or homeopathic teething remedies. They have not been shown to be effective, and as this article points out, can be dangerous.
