Although I feel this product DOES help in some ways, I also feel it's not enough. For a teething baby, they are in discomfort most of the time, which would mean having to apply this every 2 minutes throughout the day which is not logical, nor affordable. I personally tried this product. I applied it on my gum and it did tingle and become numb, which is the point of this. Having said that, after about 30 seconds, it wore off. After my personal experience, I realized it's only working on a child for not even 1 minute. It could certainly help in the most uncomfortable times for a baby where nothing else soothes them and take the edge off but like I stated, what do you do after that 1 minute? Overall, Orajel makes very kid-friendly products and is a trusted brand. I know from using this product and from reading into it and the packaging, it is safe for babies and causes no side effects.
