Although there are a select few parents who claim to have never even realized when their baby started to teeth, for the majority of us, there is no doubt when this [very un-pleasurable] milestone began. From the endless whining and drooling, to the sleepless nights and your babies inability to be soothed, teething can seem to last forever when you are in the midst of it with your child.
The same can be said when your toddler begins to run around, seeming to get a new bump or bruise every other day. And while many of them can just be brushed off, there are those few that really need some extra TLC, again, making for very long days (and often nights) with your child.
However, if you are anything like me and hate to give your child any sort-of medicine or over the counter “cure”, then you (and therefore your child), just have to put up with it and wait out the pain.
That is unless you have tried one of Hyland’s Homeopathic remedies to help ease the discomfort – for both you and your little ones.
THE PRODUCT: Hyland’s is a homeopathic company, dating all the way back to 1903. Driven by the simple scientific proof of how the body can call upon its own natural defenses to heal and restore balance (ie, the basis of homeopathic medicine), Hyland’s has created a bounty of nature-based medicines, from infants to the elderly. Virtually free of side effects, these remedies are a far cry from the over-prescribed and chemical-laden concoctions that seem to be all too readily available these days.
As the producer of the #1 infant oral pain reliever in America, Hyland’s big claim to fame is their Baby Teething Tablets. Easily dissolvable and a cinch to use, these help make nights bearable, and days livable through this relentless time of your babies’ life.
Hyland’s Bumps ’n Bruises™ Ointment and Tablets are two of the other great products from this company. Arnica Montana, the most widely recognized homeopathic medicine for bruising and swelling, is the main ingredient in these first-aid treatments and helps make your toddler’s never ending falls as pain-free as possible.
HEALTH-WISE: Just because a product is “natural” does not necessarily mean it is safe. With that said, I do highly trust the safety of Hyland’s products and feel confident in giving my son a dose when it seems that nothing else is working – and I don’t want to turn to chemical-laden medicines. However, I do understand that there are many skeptics out there who still feel uneasy about giving their children homeopathic remedies. This may help make you feel more at ease:
“Even if a child ate an entire bottle of homeopathic medicine, the minute total amount of active ingredients renders the chances of a medically serious anticholinergic toxicity effects highly unlikely. However, even with the very low doses of source materials that are in homeopathic medicines, extremely allergic individuals could experience acute allergic reactions to one or more ingredients. Nonetheless, we [at Hyland’s] understand that parents are rightfully cautious about their own child, so feel free to call us anytime if you are concerned. Hyland’s may be contacted for emergency information about our products 24 hours a day, 7 days per week at (800) 624-9659.”
Now, in regards to the specific products mentioned above:
Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets have been safely used by millions of children since being introduced to the U.S. market in 1945! Created to relieve the symptoms of simple restlessness and wakeful irritability due to cutting teeth, these tablets also help reduce redness and teething discomfort.
Containting homeopathically prepared forms of Calcarea Phosphorica, Chamomilla, Coffea Cruda, and Belladonna, these ingredients are all prepared in accordance with the Homeopathic Pharmacopœia of the United States (HPUS). HPUS has been recognized by the FDA since 1938 as the official compendium (or formula book) for homeopathic medicine in the U.S. When homeopathically prepared, active ingredients are diluted to the point that the risk of toxicity is virtually non-existent.
Hyland’s Bumps ’n Bruises™ Ointment, and their Bumps ’n Bruises Tablets, are two other great products from Hyland’s. Containing Arnica Montana, the most widely recognized homeopathic medicine for bruising and swelling, these products are safe and effective for children 2–12 years old. Plus, they contain all natural active ingredients and do not contain any Aspirin, Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Nothing will help ruin your babies’ sleep schedule like a bout of teething! And there’s nothing more frustrating then knowing what’s wrong and not being able to do anything about it. The same thing goes for when you toddler falls and gets all bruised up. You know they’re in pain, but there’s not too much you can do.
That’s why I am so happy to know that there are companies out there like Hyland’s. Dedicated to helping your little ones feel better in the most natural way possible, it’s nice to know that there is a final place to turn to when your hugs and kisses are just not enough.
