brushing teeth

How often do you brush your lo's teeth? I've been doing it once a day during bath time, but it is sometimes impossible to get the infant toothbrush in there. Do you brush twice a day for lo??

Re: brushing teeth

  • Once a day. It's always a battle. I usually brush in the morning after he's had breakfast and it's getting harder every day. This morning I had to lay him on the floor and hold his arms down with my feet while holding his head still with one hand and forcing the toothbrush into his mouth with the other. I do sometimes take a wet washcloth and do a quick wipe a couple times per day, as well.

  • We just do once a day, too. It's always after his bath before bed. He likes getting his brushed! He opens his mouth wide and giggles when I'm finished!

    This for us too. We do just once during our bath/bed routine. If she has another bottle around this time, we wait to brush right after.

  • Once a day. I asked the Pedi at his 1 year appt and she said once a day is fine at this point, as long as it's after he's had his last nursing session/milk for the day.

  • Once a day, at night. Pedi said to do it after his last feeding so the milk doesn't sit on his teeth while he sleeps. It is a battle. He just grabs for the brush the entire time. I'm thinking about getting two more brushes so he can have one in both hands while I brush his teeth.
