Celestamine Syrup and Teething
I' ve heard that Celestamine Syrup is good for when baby is cutting teeth as it is a combination of anti-inflammatory and antihistamine and due to this it calms baby too. Is this true and how safe is it for an 8 month old?

I cannot believe that you would even consider giving your baby a powerful cortisone combined with an old antihistamine for a minor natural event [teething] in your baby's life.
