Toothbrush

Have you started brushing LO's teeth?  DD has just gotten some teeth and I have been wiping them off with a wet wash cloth but I'm thinking I should get her a tooth brush.  I have no idea what to buy though.  Any suggestions?

Re: Toothbrush

  • I bought DD a toddler toothbrush from the grocery. I let her "brush" her teeth when I brush and floss mine. Her toothbrush is also her favorite teether

  • I bought DS a rubber toothbrush. Just to let him chew on and get use to it. Haven't used toothpaste. Plus his vitamin has floride in it.

  • We've been brushing dd's teeth for a while now, but she got teeth a bit early. We just picked up a toddler toothbrush from walmart and she loves "brushing" her teeth. Every now and again she lets me get in there and actually brush them lol

  • We also have a rubbery one and let him chew on it. I try to brush it around on his teeth and gums a little but he only tolerates that for about 10 seconds

    Same for me and my DS.  The pediatrician just told me today at the 9 month check up to start brushing his teeth.  I have a couple rubber ones that came in my J&J set.  He loves chewing on it and will let me get in there for just a few seconds.  I figure chewing on it helps too.  The ped also told me I could used a wet washcloth.

  • I have the finger one.  She loves getting her teeth brushed. I just use it with water right now usually during bath time.

  • Do any of you use toothpaste or just water when brushing your LO's teeth?

  • We don't have enough teeth to be brushing yet, we just use a washcloth for now. But our pedi said no toothpaste. She said they make some baby toothpastes but water is good enough for now.
