How are your LO's doing in the tooth/dental department? Has anyone taken their LO to the dentist yet (and, when are you "supposed" to?)? If so, any tips or suggestions for how to make this go smoothly? Aaaand finally, when can you use "regular" toothpaste and not the baby/fluoride free kind?
Kieran has 16 teeth now (8 top, 8 bottom, just missing his back molars) and I wonder about when its ok to get him real toothpaste, and when we should take him to the dentist. DH has a history of bad teeth so we want to make sure to be on top of this! I kind of dread taking him to the dentist though, I cannot imagine that would go over well. He used to be great about brushing his teeth- he would ask to several times a day (I think he just liked the tooth paste lol). But lately he's been putting up more of a fight about it. I think it has to do with his newfound love of the word "no" and wanting to use it as much as possible :rolleyes:
