I'm wondering what tips anyone can give me to help my son get into brushing his teeth more? I'm guessing for now it may be a lost cause because he's just barely under 22mos. but nothing I've tried has worked! He'll humor me for a few seconds but then he won't let me near them to do a good job! I've tried creating a little song and dance about 'Brushing Time and he'll sing and dance but won't participate lol I tried letting him do it for a bit and then saying 'Okay, now its Mommy's turn!' and he either runs away with the tooth brush or kicks and screams when I take it from him and try. I'm willing to try anything that has proven to work!
He also has decided, in the last couple weeks, that he no longer likes anything we feed him. He used to have a baffling appetite, he'd scarf down anything we'd put in front of him, almost to the point of grabbing more to eat before he'd finish eating what was in his mouth AND run to mommy and daddy's plate for more. Now, we have to beg him to eat at every meal. I know its okay, if kids are being picky, to let them go without eating once or twice...sometimes they just aren't hungry or can't be reasoned with and its not like they'll starve for missing one meal. But this has been consistent and I'm getting concerned. Any experience with this? TIA!!
