Teething pain got your little one down? I have experienced both extremes with respect to teething. With my first kid the teeth just popped one day. No warning, no pain – nothing, nada. With my 18 month old, they have been slowly inching their way to the top even though he still only has 6 teeth. It has been a painful process for him, they hurt him, his gums are swollen and as a result he sometimes doesn’t eat and he gets cranky.
Then I bring out my magic medicine and 1 lick of the fine powder. He is fine! He is happy! The change is almost instant. It always amazes me. Curious as to what this magic powder is? Calcarea Phosphorica or Calcarea Phos. Calcarea Phos is basically a calcium powder that helps with the teething process. It is 100% natural and has no side effects. It is so effective at relieving teething pain that I don’t need to massage his gums, or give/buy him teething toys etc.
There are other options for relieving teething pain. Orajel is a leading brand when it comes to teething issues. I don’t know much about the ingredients in it so cannot speak for Orajel although I do believe they also have a natural paraben free dye free version in addition to their flavored products. Hyland’s also has teething gel and tablets that use Calcarea Phos as a base with other ingredients to it. We just use plain Calcarea Phos powder in our home.
It is the magic powder in our home and I am really glad that my father recommended this to me because this option would not have crossed my mind. If over the counter mediation is not your style, you should try Calcarea Phos because IT WORKS!
