Totally lurking here but I just wanted to say they have the same ingredients as Hylands and a lady in my daughter PR used them and said they worked just as good so I picked some up the other day and hope they do work the same.

Yes, but I prefer the teething strips that they make. So much easier to use and I used one on myself and could tell that it was "working" if that makes sense.

I ordered a couple of boxes
Buy Humphreys Teething Relief Strips, Very Cherry Online at drugstore.com

My favorite tablets are from Homeostasis Labs
Buy Homeostasis Labs Children's Teething Relief, Tablets Online at drugstore.com - the dosage for these tabs are only 1 tablet every 4 hours, so they are little stronger than 1 Hyland tablet. I ran out of Hyland tablets a month or so ago and actually prefer these over them.

I've not heard of them!! I refuse to buy Hylands again though because twice I bought them and twice I had to throw them out because of the recall. They have lost my business now

Recall doesn't bother me. It was recalled for stupid reasons and because ppl don;t know how to read instructions. And big deal if it doesn't have a child proof lid, my 8 month old can't open the bottle and besides that I don't let it my childs hands.

Thanks Holly. Do they dissolve as quickly as the Hylands do?

I would have bought the bottles off of you, lol, the recall wasn't because the product was unsafe or contaminated....it was because some idiot out there overdosed their child and the lid isn't childproof. (I totally sound insensitive when I say that, but come on---read the directions. You don't give your child more Tylenol than the label states so why would you give them more tablets?)

No, that's sort of why I went to the strips because the strips turn to mush super fast and I like that. Then the strips stick to their tongue really good, which causes the baby to "smack" and get it everywhere better. The homeostasis labs ones aren't as quick as Hylands, but I would say they were faster than the Humphreys. The only downside of the homeostasis labs ones is the packaging (It's literally a cardboard box, it sort of reminds me of a box of Nerds candy)

I truly notice a difference if I forget to give Sophie a heart at bedtime (they are heart shaped) so I'm sure these will get pulled eventually too

Oh, and you only get 50 tabs which is why I do the tabs at night (because you can only use them every 4 hours) and the strips during the day, which you can use every 2.

Thanks, Holly. And I ditto your sentiments about the recall. I think it is ridiculous to recall the product just because some stupid mom overdosed their kid. I mean if you give more than the recommended dose of anything you will have an adverse reaction. That's why there are instructions. Doesn't mean you have to pull all off the shelves. FDA just hates homepathic anyway.
