What are Nelson’s Teething Granules?
Nelson’s Teething Granules are a homeopathic remedy for teething, using natural ingredients to soothe baby’s sore and irritated gums. Ideal for parents who want to ease their baby’s teething pain using natural ingredients instead of medication.
What is teething?
Teething is what happens when your baby’s teeth start to move up through their gums, giving them their first teeth. During this process, the new teeth cut through your baby’s gums, causing them pain and making them feel irritated. Teething usually begins when your baby is around 6 months old but can start earlier or later. Some of the most common symptoms of teething include:
- Sore, red gums where the teeth are coming through
- One cheek is flushed
- Your baby wants to chew on things more than usual
- Your baby is fussy and uncomfortable
How will this product ease my baby’s teething pain?
Nelson’s Teething Granules contains the active ingredient Chamomilla Recutita, which is an extract of chamomile flowers. Chamomile is traditionally used for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, making it the ideal herbal remedy for teething pain.
How to use Nelson’s Teething Granules
For babies who are over 6 months old, put the baby in an upright or sitting position and slowly pour or spoon the contents of one sachet into the front of the baby’s mouth. Do this a little at a time. Make sure that the granules fully dissolve in your baby’s mouth. For babies aged 3 – 6 months, pour half a sachet into the front of baby’s mouth and wait for granules to dissolve, then give the remaining half of the sachet. For all babies, use one sachet every 2 hours, making sure not to use more than 6 sachets in any 24-hour period.
