We have been avid teething tablet users since our oldest son first had the tale-tell signs of those first baby teething breaking through. Depending on where we were shopping, the coupon we had and the specials being run, we would buy Hyland's, Humphrey's or the store brand. All seemed to work equally as well for our older boys - instant relief!
As my youngest has started the teething journey, we have found that the pellets or tablets we had used previously weren't doing the job for him. My mom purchased a box of teething tablets for us she found on sale and they had a couple samples of teething swift strips made by Humphrey's. As a mom eager to take away the pain in a safe, natural way, I was all for trying these new strips, but for whatever reason, I kept putting it off.
Well, Monday night, we lost power at our house. I walked my screaming, gnawing, drooling baby around by candlelight, who was totally unhappy with any carrier I tried and only wanted me to hold him upright and super tight. Then and there, I knew I had to get some teething relief in his system. As my husband was calming the fears of our older two, I was left trying to figure out how to dispense the tiny tablets one handed...in the dark! I then remembered the teething strips. I felt my way around the kitchen counter, trying to remember where I had seen the sample pack last. Success! I opened the thin package and said out loud, "IT'S EMPTY!" I couldn't see anything by the candle light. I hit a button on my phone for some more light and found the nearly clear strip sitting inside the package.
I put it inside Caedmon's mouth, and no joke, within 30 seconds, the strip had dissolved, he was calm, looking at me with his goofy grin, and eye lids starting to get heavy. I sat in my favorite chair and began to rock and sing to him. He continued to make lovey eyes at me for about 2 minutes and then drifted off to dreamland.
He took an amazing, early evening snooze and was so happy the rest of the evening (until chow time - no teething strip can fix that!)
Not wanting to wake the snoozing baby who fought so hard for sleep, my husband and I were texting each other from across the room while waiting for the power to come back on about the success of these strips. The consensus: we WILL be buying more Humphrey's Teething Swift Strips. ASAP!
My mom found these Teething Swift Strips at Walgreens, but I also saw them available on amazon.com and just about any online drugstore.
Humphrey's Teething Swift Strips are Lactose, Sugar, Aspirin and Ibuprofen Free as well as 100% all natural.
They are called "Swift Strips" for a reason: not only do they dissolve quickly, they get to work just as fast!
