for those that have LO's with teeth, what are you doing with them? Are you brushing them yet?
I try but she mostly chews on the brush. I give it to her to play with. It's her favorite teether.
Yep I brush them. He likes it and opens his mouth when he sees the brush coming. It's really cute!
ahh i havn't done it yet! i'm going to start as he has two bottom teeth and i think his top two are about to come in. do you use toothpaste?
Lucas doesn't have any teeth yet, but I started brushing DD's as soon as she got the 1st one. They have baby toothpaste, so I used that to start w/. And it takes like 2 sec b/c there's not much to brush yet.
I never thought of this w/ Lily, but my bff has been giving her DS a toothbrush as a teether since he was about 6 or 7 mo. A dentist friend she has suggested it, said it's good for their gums. He loves it. I should give Lucas one I think.
No teeth here yet, but buying a baby toothbrush and toothpaste is on my list of things to get when I'm in a real city starting next week. Nobody here has any.
Does anyone have a favorite toothbrush?
You don't have to use tooth paste but you can if you want to. Just make sure it's flouride free until they are old enough not to swallow it.
Im using a flouride free one that is made for babies. Its fruit flavoured. I only use a tiny bit. It does only take a few seconds with only 2 teeth, but he loves it! Good idea to use it as a teether!
ahhh he's gnawing on one right now. i think he likes it;)
Jackie, we have one that the welcome wagon gave us it's just a g-u-m brush for babies with extra soft bristles
Yep, I brush his teeth too. With baby tooth paste. He's not keen on my brushing them but he loves to chew on the brush. I started brushing DS1's as soon as he got his too. And most of the time he's really happy so get them done still
I need to buy a toothbrush for Ronin so I haven't started brushing yet, I just need to find one small enough that doesn't cost a fortune seeing as he will mostly just chew on it.
