Is it ok to use baby teething gels?
I am from Sweden and they donít sell teething gels over here. I guess itís for health/safety reasons. (Iīm thinking of asking a friend of mine from the UK to buy me some)
So, my question is: Have you heard any discussions on why you should not use baby teething gels?

I don't know why you can't get them in Sweden. If they were harmful then you wouldn't be able to buy them in the UK either, and yet you can just go to the supermarket and buy them now. People have been using them for generations in the UK so they must be ok.
I have used them for both of my children with no ill effects. I also got a good nights sleep when using it so it must have helped.

Ive used bonjela teething gel on Kaitlin since she was 2 months old, and its been an absolute godsend, she is literally a different baby within seconds of me putting it on. I put a little bit on my own tongue to see what it was like, and my tongue went a little bit numb, imagine how nice that must be when your gums are hurting?!
