Teething Help from Baby Orajel Naturals

By now I think it’s safe to say you all know how I feel about teething. It’s the only thing that can turn my normally content baby girl’s sweet-nature around. She becomes clingy, she doesn’t sleep at night, and nothing makes her happy.

But can you blame her? I can’t imagine how painful teething must be on her little gums, and she just don’t understand why it’s hurting so much. To sum it up, teething is awful. I’ve written before about the many routes we’ve taken when it comes to teething and nothing ever seemed to give her the relief I was looking to find.

Then I received the Baby Orajel Naturals Teething Tablets in the mail right in the middle of her cutting her top molars, and suddenly she found some relief.

The quick-dissolve tablets were a life saver, and she began to immediately get some relief from those pesky molars. And by quick I mean, the tablets feature a quick-dissolve rate of less than 10 seconds. Moms of toddlers and teething babies alike know how important that quick- dissolve feature becomes when you have an agitated baby who just needs some relief.

Of course, I left some in the medicine cabinet and went ahead and put a bottle in the diaper bag, too.

The best part? Is that word Natural in the name. We live in a society of constant recalls on baby products so I have peace of mind knowing that this product is natural and safe for Braylen. Orajel is a name we’ve trusted in the past, and I was so happy to see that Baby Orajel Naturals product, the first homeopathic offering from our favorite teething brand, Orajel.

The product uses Chamomilla as one of its key ingredients, and they are belladonna-free, benzocaine-free, alcohol-free and paraben-free. And let’s face it, words of ingredients that we can’t pronounce or don’t recognize certainly don’t belong in our babies mouths.

I know for me, teething has been one of the biggest obstacles to overcome as a new parent. From the very beginning up until now, teething has been the one thing that can total knock us right back to sleepless nights and rocking chairs.

Thankfully, as rough as teething can be there are so many good moments that outweigh the tough ones, there are so many fun firsts that make the tougher ones seem obsolete, and with Orajel’s help you can sail right through one of the toughest times.

A happy, smiling baby even in the midst of teething.

  1. I love when Emmy laughs at me!

  2. My favorite moment is first thing in the morning. He gives me the biggest smiles and is so happy to see me. It makes my day!

  3. My favorite moment is right before my precious baby boy goes down for his morning nap- he snuggles right into my arms!!

  4. Hard to pick one but it would have to be when Hudson snuggled on my chest after a feeding :-)

  5. My favorite thing about being a new mom was definitely newborn cuddles, but my second favorite is belly laughs. Taylor has started something new lately, which is giving kisses. There is just so much to love about being a mom, but teething has definitely been a struggle for us since getting rid of the pacifier!

  6. When I get her up in the morning, and she is so happy to see me!!! Great way to start off your day!

  7. My son had a speech delay and one of my favorite moments was when he finally was able to say Mommy. It warmed my heart.

  8. I love how they will come up and hug me out of the blue and say, “I love you so much.” That is when I want to make time stand still.


  9. My favorite moment is when he figures out something new. You can see that look of satisfaction on his face and you realize that showing him how to do it 50 times was well worth now that he see he can do it on his own!

  10. My favorite moment was the first time I held my son. After trying for over 15 years and finally being able to have a child. He was a blessing from God and my son continues to bless my life morning – noon and night. From I love you Mom to Can I have a hug? what more could a Mom ask for.

  11. My favorite moment is when Drew lays his sweet head on my shoulder, I can feel him breathe and smell that sweet baby breath. It’s my whole world.

  12. Just one moment??? Yikes!

    A fav moment was when I knew she recognized ME. So emotionally overwhelming!

  13. One of my favorite moments is when she says “I Love You Mommy” :)

  14. My favorite moment as a new mom was bringing our baby home. It was so peaceful and happy, and we were just so in awe of being responsible for this new little life.

  15. My favorite moment as a new mom is holding my baby’s hand and enjoying the peacefulness while watching them in my arms. sonyadmorris@gmail.com

  16. My favorite moment was to see my baby smiling


  17. My favorite moment is when I walk into my daughter’s room in the morning. Her eyes light up, she jumps up and says “hi!”

  18. walking in the nursery to get Avery from naptime/bedtime-he lights up and has the biggest smile!

  19. Not a mom yet, but have loved it when each of my friends’ kids have said my name for the first time! Thanks for the give away offer!

  20. My favorite moment is cuddling with my little boy before he goes to sleep.. Even at 13 months he lets me rock him for a little while, it’s the sweetest moment of my day!

  21. I love seeing my little girl smile, love on our puppy and experience new things for the first time! She is 19 months and each day is a joy!! laurenbtrain@gmail.com

  22. My favorite moment is bathtime. From birth to about 7 months old Sadie hated the bath tub. It terrified her… And we tried everything, the only way she could get wet without screaming was if we gave her a sponge bath… Once she was mobile we had to bath her almost everyday because she would get so dirty. It took us about a week of 1 hour long sessions of getting her into the bath tub, now she screams if we get her out too early. Definitely a triumph for us, but its just so fun to watch her play, splash and babble (and smell the best ever coming out of the tub!)

  24. Such a fun giveaway. My favorite new mom moment is multi-faceted. I love being the only person that my son wanted when hungry/uncomfortable/anxious/teething/you name it. While it can be stressful and tiring, it was such a beautiful bonding time.

  25. The first real smile I got. I was singing our “good morning” song.

  26. When she reaches for me when someone else is holding her :)

  27. Love it when my baby says, “Mamamama,” and reaches her arms up towards me. Melts my heart every time!!

  28. I loved visiting the ocean with my six month old this last week- his eys got so big- was great!

  29. My favorite moments have been either first thing in the morning when he looks at me and smiles, or in the afternoons when I pick him up from my mom’s and he’s all smiles because I’m there to pick him up and he wraps his arms around me. Melts my heart every time!

  52. my favorite mommy moment is hearing my baby giggle

  53. My favorite was watching my son jump in his jumperoo. He’d jump & laugh until he jumped himself to sleep :)

  54. My absolute favorite moment as a mom was meeting my miracle baby girl for the first time — seeing her sweet face was hands down the best moment :-)


  55. Is there anything better than a first smile? I think not.

  56. I have six kids. Each one is so different, but my favorite “new mom” moment with each one has to be when they look into my eyes, for the first time, and know that I am their mom. There is a look of contentment on their face, a knowing, they are at peace, and I am at peace. It is a quiet moment that know one else knows but the two of us as we look into each others eyes.

  57. My favorite was my son’s first smile

  58. Watching my husband (first time dad) watch as the nurses cleaned off our daughter and put her in the warmer. His eyes glistened with pride and trepidation. Beautiful moment!

  59. i loved my baby in my arms for the first time

  72. My favorite moment as a new Mom was when I talked with him, he laughed and responded with his “baby talk” happily.


  73. I was a totally inexperienced 18 year old when my oldest son was born. I’d never even changed a diaper. The first time I changed him in the hospital I put the diaper on backwards. Now that baby is about to turn 30. I can barely believe it.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  80. When my youngest was only 18 months old he had to spend a week in the hospital. He was so unhappy and seemed to hate me when I couldn’t take him home. The day I went in and said “Do you want to go home?” he gave me the biggest smile and grabbed my neck so tight I thought he would never let go. That was such a special moment.

  86. I don’t have human kids but do have 7 cat fur babies! LOL One of my favorite memories with some of my cats is bottle feeding. They would get SO excited and just crazy during feedings if the bottle slipped out of their mouths or their suction caused a vacuum to form and the milk to stop coming out. They would just flail their little hands and beat the bottle until I fixed the problem. SO cute!!!!

  100. My son came to us first as a foster child. I’ve had many wonderful moments, but probably one of the most memorable was when he started calling me “Mom”.

  101. My favorite moment is seeing my baby smile up at me! Thanks for the chance to win.

  102. I love when he puts his little head on my shoulder, and no matter how scared of frustrated i might be, he gives me peace that i can not describe. I love when he puts his little hand on mine when i worry, like he wants to say “momma, it will be ok”. I love when i find him standing in his crib, trying to pull himself up, looking at the door and hiding his smile behind the paci in his mouth :-) Im a first time mom, and im scared to death on how im doing, or the mistakes im making – cause i know i learn as he grows, so i only pray that i make as less mistakes as possible, and that when i do make them, he forgives me, cause im learning too. I love every single moment that i spend with my baby, and each and every one is precious and exceptional.
