Ashton & Parsons Teething Powders Information

  • What are Ashton & Parsons Teething Powders?

    Ashton & Parsons Teething Powders are a traditional herbal medicinal product used for the relief of teething pain and symptoms associated with teething such as sore and tender gums, flushed cheeks and dribbling based on traditional use only.

    How do I know if a baby is teething?

    Infants usually start teething between 4 and 6 months of age, but may begin a little before or after this time. Teething is the stage at which milk teeth begin to emerge by pushing through gums, and this can be a painful process.

    The most painful parts are when teeth are just about to break through the gums, and each instance may last a few days. The following teething symptoms are common:

    • Red or sore gums
    • More dribbling than is usual
    • A raised desire to chew on things
    • Additional fussiness or irritability
    • A mild temperature of 38C
    • Trouble falling asleep

    Alternative teething treatments

    Aside from using teething powders, there are various alternative treatments that you can try to relieve teething pain for your child. Everyone is different, so you may need to try several different remedies before you find an effective option. Consider the following for your child:

    • Giving them teething rings
    • Offering them foods such as melon pieces or breadsticks
    • Cleaning their face more often to help avoid a rash
  • How do I use Ashton & Parsons Teething Powders?
