The best baby teething gels and powders you can buy in the UK (top 4)

When your baby is teething it can cause a lot of stress - not just for your baby, who will likely be experiencing a lot of pain and discomfort, but also for you, as your baby will likely be crying from the discomfort.

Luckily, there are lots of ways to help your baby when they're teething, and one of the most popular options is to use a baby teething gel or powders. There are lots of options when it comes to products like this, so we thought it would be useful to round up the best baby teething gels and powders that you can buy in the UK, let's get into it:

Bonjela Teething Gel

This gel works by creating a protective film on your baby’s gums which helps to provide relief. Because the film needs to sit on the gums, you should only really apply this gel after meals and before sleeping.

The gel also has a pleasant taste but contains absolutely no artificial colours, flavours or sugar, so you can rest assured that your baby isn’t consuming anything rubbish. On top of this, the gel contains no parabens. Learn more and buy it here -

Ashton & Parsons Teething Gel

Don’t be fooled by the old school packaging of this teething gel - it’s a very effective product, despite being quite simple in terms of the ingredients. You won’t find anything nasty in this teething gel, as it’s free from local anaesthetic, as well as being free from lactose, sugar, and alcohol. Every tube of the Ashton & Parsons Teething Gel has a soft brush on the tip which makes applying the gel direct from the tube really comfortable for your baby. It also makes it really easy and fast to apply the gel, which is very useful if you’re out and about and need to apply the gel quickly. Learn more and buy it here -

Teething granules can often be easier to apply than a teething gel, and that’s why we really like the teething granules from Teetha, despite the fact that the company also has a teething gel. You simply empty the granules onto a small spoon and slowly give them to your baby half a sachet at a time. The granules will dissolve as soon as they go into your baby’s mouth. Often, it can be easier to give your baby teething granules on a spoon instead of gel on the end of a tube, as the spoon feels more welcoming to your baby. Chamomilla is the active ingredient in the granules and there is a bit of xylitol, which is a natural sweetener, for taste. Learn more and buy it here -

Boots Teething Pain Relief

Similar to the Teetha granules, the Boots Teething Pain Relief granules contain Chamomilla as the main active ingredient. But the difference between these teething granules and the granules from Teetha is that the Boots teething granules contain no xylitol, so aren’t quite as sweet as the Teetha granules. Interestingly however, on the Boots website these own-brand teething granules actually have a better rating than many of the branded teething granules and even some of the teething gels.
