I ran out of baby orajel and i was wondering if I could give my 11 month old regular orajel?

Orajel makes gums harder, therefore making teeth more painful to cut. I wouldn't give LO either, do you have teething tablets? They work wonders.

I did a couple of times when NOTHING else was working. That being said, my pedi advises against the use of Orajel at all.

I wouldn't, no. The amount of numbing agent is probably 3x higher in the adult kind, so getting the right amount for a baby would be impossible. You would probably end up making your kid's throat numb and then he'd probably choke on his own spit.
