Toothpaste- Edited to clarify

Do you use a toothpaste with xylitol on your LO?

I just bought E new toothpaste and there is xylitol in it.

Edited to add clarity.

    No, sorry. I meant to ask does your LOs toothpaste have xylitol?

    The new toothpaste I grabbed for E is called Spry and it has xylitol. Is this a no no or is this okay?

    What I read online was that it was a sweetener and that it is good for oral hygiene but can cause diarrhea in kids (if ingested in huge amounts), but has no known toxicity in humans.

    I didn't see it listed on Gator's toothpaste

    We do, apparently. We use Tom's with flouride and it says the Xylitol comes from birch trees or corn. :

    I do know that xylitol is deadly to dogs, so be careful if you have a dog that eats non-food things!
