Little Jack is teething, and he has been in that stage for a long time now. The normal signs of biting everything in sight, drooling like Niagara Falls and whining. On the fourth of July, he started running a fever and his top left front tooth was bulging. Finally at just a few days short of 9 months, he was getting a real tooth!
I had no idea that getting a tooth could be such a dramatic and lengthy process. Now, on the 16th of July, there is still no tooth. He has been in a lot of pain, and very fussy with fever ranging from 99- 103. He is not interested in frozen washcloths, teething toys or anything else for that matter. So whats a Mama to do?
I have been consoling him the best I can with lots of affection and lots of Camilia.
Camilia is a homeopathic medicine designed for teething relief. It is manufactured by Boiron and can be purchased at most pharmacies, natural food stores and of course online. I have used many other products from this company and have found all of them very useful and effective. This particular teething medication is free of many controversial but popular teething ingredients such as Belladonna or Benzocaine. I also appreciate the fact that it contains no artificial colors or flavors as well. SO I choose to give this to Jack and it works for us. This may be something for you to explore if your little one is having trouble teething.
Here is the list of ingredients from the Boiron Webpage which can be found by clicking here.
- Chamomilla 9C HPUS – Relieves teething pain accompanied by irritability
- Phytolacca decandra 5C HPUS – Relieves painful gums
- Rheum officinale 5C HPUS – Relieves minor digestive disorders associated with teething
The letters HPUS indicate that this ingredient is officially included in the Homeopathic Pharmacopœia of the United States.
THIS IS STILL A MEDICATION AND SHOULD BE USED AT YOUR OWN RISK! ALWAYS FOLLOW DIRECTIONS PER MANUFACTURER & CONSULT A MEDICAL DOCTOR. JACKS CRUNCHY MAMA IS NOT A LICENSED MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL AND THIS IS NOT MEDICAL TREATMENT OR ADVICE, MEERLY AN OPINION. THANK YOU!
