Q.

Telament Drops

Hi Doc

I need to know why telament drops has a sticker on saying that you should not administer directly into babies mouth, and that you should pour the drops into milk or water.

I am just curious to know why.

Telament is very safe and will cause no harm if by chance it is put in a baby's mouth. However in order to have its beneficial effect it has to be mixed with the infant's formula.

Good question! Maybe it has a bit of alcohol that can take babies breath away if you give it undiluted? Both mine also grew up on Telament - excellent stuff!

My babys first 5 months or life has been with Telament, I was using a syringe mix with haelamensis and she is fine and healthy but its best to give in milk or water as they say, depends on the baby, especially if they have dyria.
