anyone use Gentle Naturals for teething?

Just curious, I got some and havent used it yet. We normally use orajel but I wanted to try this, I dont like the other natural stuff due to having belladona, I know it is low amounts but still uneasy about it. The only thing in this I am not sure of is the Staphysagria. I read up on it and it seems to mostly be for some other stuff other than teeth that seems a little odd to me. Anyone have experience with it in little ones?

thanks,
heidi

We use Hylands Teething tablets also - works wonders! I've included a link to some info regarding the Belladona:

http://www.bloggingbaby.com/2006/01/17/blogging-a-baby-teething-sucks/

"One bottle has 125 tablets, 1 grain each = 8 grams. So that's *still* only 0.00012mg of tropane alkaloids. So maybe if the kid ate, like, 5000 entire bottles all at once there might be a slight effect. But probably not, because:

In order to get a dose which would be fatal to 50% of adult humans, you'd need to take approximately 33 MILLION bottles all at once. That's about, um, 294 *tons* of tablets. All at once."

Thanks I know it wont be fatal to them. But it has bothered me when i have seen other youngsters after their mamas have given them one or two tablets act kinda punch drunk, hard to describe and it was back when ds1 was teething. I figure if it bothers me I would just avoid it, hence I found the other brand.

thanks,
heidi
