Don't make me gag mum!

Teething, what a trying time for mother and baby. I think most of us have tried those leading brands that make our baby numb. My babies have always gagged, and then had a poor latch on the breast when nursing. And they never did seem to work did they?

My herbologist introduced me to Boiron Camilia. A homeopathic approach to teething.. hmm... I was skeptical. But I'll give anything a fair shot, so I did. Twisted off the top, and dropped some into the mouth of my cranky 4 month old. It seems within a few minutes he really calmed right down. Wait.. how could this be? It doesn't have that strong numbing effect as those other brands, how on Earth is this helping?! I thought it was just a fluke. But sure enough, nearly every time he was cranky, I was able to soothe him with the Camilia.

Here's a glance of what this miracle product consists of:

Check your local health store to see if they carry it. I'm so glad we've discovered this :)
