Baby Orajel Naturals to the Rescue!




A monster has invaded our house--one that causes restless sleep, fever, excessive drool, lack of appetite, and most unfortunately, an incredibly fussy toddler.  My sweet girl has turned into this over the past few weeks:

We've dealt with this monster on a much smaller scale before but this specific breed is INTENSE.

It's not just the normal teething monster...it's the eye teeth monster.

Teething has always been hard on Kate.  It takes her ages to actually cut a tooth, and I'm certain the pre tooth-cutting stage is just as bad, if not worse, for her than actually cutting a tooth.  But man, these eye teeth are INSANE.  It is the most intense teething we've experienced to date and has lasted forever.

When I was contact by BlogHer and Orajel to review Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablet, the new, all natural teething tablets I couldn't say yes fast enough!

We've tried many different products to help with Kate's teething pain.  When she was not as strong willed younger, we were very happy with the Orajel that comes in the tube and is applied directly to the gums.  Now that Kate has a mouth full of teeth and a strong opinion, there is absolutely no way I can successfully apply the gel to her gums.

Baby Orajel Natural teething tablets are so easy and convenient to use!  Each tablet dissolves in your child's mouth in about 10 seconds.  Kate actually thinks it is fun to take a tablet from me, put it in her mouth, and wait for it to dissolve which means there is no fight to get her teething relief!  So much easier than pinning her down, prying her mouth open, and attempting to apply teething gel!

More importantly, these tablets are all natural!  Using Chamomilla as one of its key ingredients, Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablets are belladonna-free, benzocaine-free, dye-free, alcohol-free, and paraben-free and are the first, and only, homeopathic offering from the #1 teething brand, Baby Orajel!
Alex and I are very conscience about what we put in Kate's little body.  We obviously had no choice but to expose her to the intense chemicals found in the chemo she received and honestly, the hard chemicals in the medications were worth saving her life!  However, we try to avoid any unnecessary additives, chemicals, and preservatives.  I'm so thankful that Baby Orajel now offers a product that not only works, but is made of all natural ingredients!  It's a win-win situation for parents!

We've been using the Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablets for a few weeks now (not continuously, only as needed) and I am so pleased with the product!  As I've mentioned, they are extremely easy to use, but they also work wonderfully!

I can tell when Kate's teeth are bothering her--she gets fussy, refuses to eat, and tries to shove anything she can into her mouth.  Within a few minutes of giving her these tablets, she is much happier and visibly more comfortable.  I've also noticed that a few tablets before bed helps with her restlessness and sleeping when she is teething!  We've tried other brands of teething tablets, and I can say, without a doubt, the Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablets work the best for Kate!

Adios teething monster!  Hello Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablets!

As a new mom (can I still call myself a new mom 20 months in and 2 kids later?), it is always challenging to battle things like teething.  I know I still question if I should medicate, wait it out, etc. Knowing I have an effective, all natural product to help with teething pain helps make my hectic life just a little bit easier!  Seeings Kate smile, and return to her happy self, is one of my favorite things about motherhood!

Poor baby! I hope she gets those teeth is SOON!

My favorite new mom moment is just snuggling with a tiny baby- it's about as sweet as it gets.

Mrs. Fuzz said...

My favorite mom moment is when my little girl sees me for the first time every day and her face lights up. Always an awesome moment! :)

Kristen said...

Oh no, I hope Kate's teeth come in soon!

My favorite mom moment is seeing the excitement in my daughter's eyes when she discovers something new.

Getting teeth are the worst! I will have to try this stuff out!

My favorite new mom moment is snuggling that little sleeping baby all day long! It really doesn't get any better than baby snuggles!

My favorite new mom moment was when I first learned to correctly wear my little newborn in her sleepy wrap. Being snuggled so close to her and seeing how comfortable she was was amazing.

The best part of being a new mom is cuddling in the rocker. Now that my kids are both a bit older, they won't sit still with me for more than 2 minutes!

Marrisa Brenton said...

One of my favorite new mom moments - My daughter, Ellie, has a lovie "bunny bunny" that she rubs on her face as she's drinking her bottle and falling asleep in my lap each night. Recently, she started to rub it on MY face - so sweet! She's a great sharer!

faeriequeene said...

My favorite new mom moment was finally being able to bring my daughter home from the hospital after she was in the NICU for 8 weeks and 2 days. Knowing that she had beaten the odds and survived, and that we finally got to be together as a family thrilled me to no end.

Ellie said...

My favorite moment is the very first night in the hospital after I've given birth. This night is the very reason why I have 4 kids, I wanted to experience this night again and again! It is so peaceful, laying in the darkened hospital room with something on tv turned low in the background, lying on your side with the bed halfway up and your brand new tiny baby curled up against your side. Those super soft tiny white snap shirts that they put on both the baby's top half and bottom half...baby not yet really hungry so mostly just sleeping...just staring at the baby's face in awe that this little being was inside your body just yesterday. I looked forward to this first night with every one of my pregnancies.

My favorite moment is that first night at home. Once all the hospital rush has calmed down and there aren't as many guests, just you and your baby. So sweet :)

mamakass said...

Heading to get these ASAP! We have the same monster at our house right now... Bummer!!

My favorite moments are reading to my 3 year old and nursing my 18 month old in the morning while sipping my coffee. Quiet and peaceful before the day begins!

Jennifer said...

My favorite part was definitely the snuggles. I don't get many anymore and wish I had enjoyed more of those snuggly naps when my son was little.

Joe, Christina, & Rocky said...

I have yet to be a new mom, but I very much look forward to all the amazing moments I've read about in your comments!

Syl said...

My favorite moment was last week, when for the first time, Oli leaned into my face, puckered his lips and laid a sloppy one on my lips. All by himself! I love that little boy so much!

Anna said...

My little guy is 18 months old and I still go in at night to "tuck him in" and kiss his sweet head. I just love stealing kisses at night!

Erin G said...

Teething is the WORST!

Best moment so far is when he decided to dump the dog's (full) water bowl over his head. All while smiling and shaking his head no. We have gotten plenty of sweet moments and cuddles, this one just made me laugh and gave me a quick glimpse into what life with a toddler will be like.
