hylands, how do you give it to your child.

All this talk of Hylands,
I used hylands colic for my DD when she was a newborn and I dissolved them in a tiny bit of water. She is now 5 months and getting ready to teeth. How do you all give the tablets. Do you think I could just drop the on her mouth or should I crush them or still mix with water?

We usually put one in her mouth and then quickly put a teething toy in her mouth and as she chews on it the tablet dissolves.

I put the tablet in DS's mouth. Even as a NB I did this w/Hyland's.

I kinda stick it to my finger and put my finger in his mouth. He sucks it off and they dissolve almost immediately.

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

I hold it for a second under the tongue. It dissolves almost instantly there. I swear the Hyland's teething tablets have made such a difference for all 3 of my kids. Ava just cut her first 2 teeth about a month ago (early!!), and she was in a lot of pain with it. These things were great!

I also think their earache tablets work well. I usually give them if Motrin is wearing off & it's not time to give it again.

When they were teeny I would dissolve the tablet in a teaspoon of water and spoonfeed it to them. By 8+ months I would just stick them in their mouths. They do dissolve super fast.

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

We just put them straight into their mouth - they dissolve really quickly. Also, according to most homeopaths, you are not supposed to touch or handle the tablets - dispense drectly into the bottle cap and then into the mouth.
