  • I wanted to take a moment of my time to tell you how much me and my little boy love your teething granules. My poor little man is 4 months old and is getting his first teeth and your teething granules are really making the process easier. He gets so excited when I get a sachet out for him. Thank you for helping him get through the teething process with ease. - Jodie (Liverpool)

  • I am a mum of two little boys, a 3 year old & 12 week old. Both my boys were early teethers & to see them in such discomfort was distressing for both of us. My 3 year old started teething at 3+ months & my 12 week old started teething at 10+ weeks. But thanks to Teetha Granules, the discomfort was eased & I know how wonderfully they worked for my 3 year old, so your products were the first things I bought when my 12 week old started showing signs of teething & once again, your product is providing relief & to be a vital item for us. I just wanted to let you know what a difference your products have & our making to us. Thank you! - Laura (Somerset, UK)
