I don't understand why people insist on taking dangerous chemicals to relieve pain. How about accepting a tiny amount of pain? It will disappear within a couple of days.

The great thing about pain is that we never remember what it feels like once it leaves.

Tell them years ago infants were not such crybabies and didn't have all the pain relief they have nowadays, poisoning their bodies

Ever had CHRONIC PAIN - pain 24/7 365 days a year? - Phantom Limb Pain, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Post-Stroke Pain, CRPS, Shingle etc The list is huge and affects 1:7 of the population.
See painrelieffoundation.co.uk if you or anyone you know need help etc.

But it tastes so good

You are obviously childless & very fortunate that you have never had chronic pain. Either that or just plain sadistic.

Bonjela teething gel can still be used it's just Bonjela and Bonjela cool that is banned
Can I still use bonjela teething gel on my teething baby?
Yes. Bonjela teething gel has been specially formulated so it is suitable to use on babies over 2 months. I does not contain choline salicylate, instead it contains lidocaine.

Sorry just seen Numptys post

hubby always said no to bonjela for the kids. he got some stuff from the surgery which we put on their gums to numb them....to be honest they still cried...there is no real cure to teething!

So if you had a baby and it was screaming in agony because its teeth were pushing through you would be happy to leave it in pain?
Never have children, you are the next Baby P killer.

Or numb in more ways than one

chocolate and cuddles pretty much works

I found whiskey and vallium worked well last time




(for me, not my daughter)


You can buy a Bonjella kids, which is especially for teething, a bit of that and driving round the Manchester ring road at 3am seems to work.

I almost lol'ed, good single dad joke though

Ashton & parson powder was effective for my children when they were teething or had an upset stomach.

I noticed that a lot of the mums at playgroup were always giving their little ones calpol at any kind of whinging or crying and wondered if kids form a resilience to it, hence the mums giving them more and more.

I bought one bottle for each of my.children but rarely used it. I found the ashtons & pardons powder worked wonders as did cuddles, hot water bottles and having them sleep in my bed if they were poorly.

The only medicine I had as a kid was some vile cough medicine and anything the Dr prescribed if you happened to be very ill, which was rare.

Nowadays there is a huge amount of over the counter products for children and adults and do believe a lot of it is unnecessary.

wow, anyway thanks for the posts guys, luckily my two never suffered badly with teething so bonjela was never used, also thankfully neither have been poorly children apart from very bad ear infections with the little guy but touch wood they they have passed now, whilst i was reading about something else i came across the aspirin thing and did not know about it, although aspirin is something i would/never have used anyway just wondered about it, so again thanks for the posts

even that guy started somewhere. this person would quite happily leave a baby in pain rather then give pain relief. strange.

Change that to 'give dangerous chemicals' and it looks slightly less damning. I went through teething and didn't need any aids, so don't exaggerate the severity of the pain. I'm pretty sure that there are natural remedies that wouldn't compromise the long-term health of your child.

If by 'posh' you mean formal, then yes.
