Re: hylands, how do you give it to your child.

We just put them right in DD's mouth (5 months old). She always has the greatest look of confusion when we do it too!

We did this even with the colic tablets when she was a newborn. It always kind of freaked me out because I was so scared she was going to choke on one. But they dissolve super fast.

Re: hylands, how do you give it to your child.

before 6mths, i would disolve it in a tiny bit of pumped bm, then give it in a dropper, after 6mths, i used water.

I tryed putting them in his mouth, but he had 3 teeth at 3mths old.....so I would get bitten.

Re: hylands, how do you give it to your child.

Originally, I put them under DS's tongue as directed, and they disolved in like a second. As he got older, I put them in his mouth, and he chewed them. Most recently he would tell me when he needed them, and I would hand them to him, he would do the rest himself.

We never used water.

Re: hylands, how do you give it to your child.

I've been hearing lots of good things about these lately. Where do you get them?

Re: hylands, how do you give it to your child.

I just went and bought a bottle of the Hyland's CALM FORTE. But, Im nervous to give it to Emma. I look at the tablet and wonder if she will somehow choke on it before it dissolves? I guess thats silly, though.

Anyone used CALMS FORTE for their little one? Did it work?
