A question I see posted a lot on parenting forums is when to start brushing your little one's teeth. The most basic answer is, "when they get teeth" which can vary wildly from kid to kid. My two sprouted teeth fairly early meaning we have been brushing tiny teeth for quite a while now. When Charlie was small, we had a hard time finding toothpaste that he actually enjoyed. Now that he's older and knows how to spit, we can use kid toothpaste with fluoride. Before that, however, it's really important to use a non-flouride toothpaste since "getting their teeth brushed" actually means sucking the paste off the brush and swallowing it immediately. Yum.
For Ginny, we were fortunate to discover Nuby's All Natural Baby Tooth & Gum Cleaner. This fluoride free, safe, natural toothpaste has been a tremendous hit with Ginny and makes brushing her teeth so much less stressful. Bedtime is hard enough without her hating this necessary step.
And yes, the bathroom counter in the kids' bathroom is really that ridiculous shade of 1970's orange. Don't worry, I know you're jealous. So, how does she feel about the all natural sweet vanilla milk flavor? Here's a little bedtime story for you...
|Oh sweet, time to brush my teeth. This stuff goes on the brush, got it.|
|NO! I was doing it!|
|Heyyyyyy give it to me!|
My favorite thing about this product is the soft silicone gum cleaner that comes with it. We don't use it much now that Ginny has most of her teeth, but it was absolutely wonderful for sore teething gums. With three different textures, it is part cleaner, part teether, and definitely appreciated by a grumpy baby.
It makes me feel good that I know her teeth and gums are getting clean and that she's not ingesting unnecessary chemicals, colors, or flavors. The Baby Tooth and Gum Cleanser is BPA free, fluoride free, safe to swallow, and endorsed by Pediatric Dentist Dr. Grace Yum - founder of Yummy Dental and Orthodontics for Kids in Chicago, IL. And as with all Nuby things - it's made right here in the USA.
