I am a convert.

When my wife brought this home and started espousing the various miraculous properties I was deeply suspicious and figured she'd been suckered in by some horrifically smug more-money-than-sense middle class 'how to be a perfect parent and be organic and carbon neutral...blah blah...look at litttle Jemimah, she's only three months and she can already conduct' type telly programme whilst on maternity leave / a case of 'what really stupid thing can we convince people to buy now...' type piece of consumerism.

And she may well have been.

But this stuff works. Within seconds. Really. Seconds. Teething child + a gob full of this = a general sense of peace, goodness and everything being right with the world descends.

There's probably instructions about how to administer it (and in case social services are reading this any implicit lack of reading them / operating a baby without due care and attention on my part is hyperbole) but we've found opening the packet and tipping some straight into her gaping maw is particularly effective. A damp dummy dipped in the dust (apologies for the alliteration) also provides sufficient and nigh on instantaneous pacification.

Admittedly our little bundle of gurning and dribbling is perfectly happy with any brand of baby crack as it has become known round here so the more costly branded one isn't necessarily needed, though appreciate some (particularly people having their first go at this 'not dropping this baby thing what's done gone appeared on its head' malarkey) might find reassuring.

Good stuff. Does the job. Tad pricey.

5 stars for loving the effect it has on small crying terrors, not for having tried it for myself...honest..

I gave these powders to my twins 10 years ago, which worked a treat. Couldn't get them in Australia, so ordered them online for my new baby. They stop him crying almost immediately. Well worth getting them imported! Many thanks for helping trying teething times.

Its a miracle powder..the moment we put that in baby's mouth the same instant he stops crying..that works like a charm.

I ordered this product as it was recommended by 2 people for teething. I was a bit sceptical at first as it's a powder and not a gel but I tried it and my son is a different person. It reduces the amount of discomfort he has and also the amount of dribbling he does. So I would highly recommended this product. The delivery was fast as well.

These are the best on the market. I used them with my own children and am now using them with my granddaughter. I was lucky enough to buy them when they were £4.98 but I refuse to pay anymore than that. The companies charging £10-20 are scamming people!! This is a homeopathic powder and no-way should you pay anymore than £4.99 MAX!!

Crying baby falls asleep after 5 minutes of being given Ashton & Parsons teething powder. I love the fact it does not contain Saccharin or any other artificial sweetener which has been proven to damage the brain. This product is natural and so it gives me a confident feeling, knowing my baby is not harmed. Thank you!
