Teeth in Training

Did you know brushing should begin as soon as your babies first tooth comes in? I totally didn't with my firstborn. 3 months into motherhood, I was still busy trying to get into routine and back to normal. By about 5 months or so, I realized we needed another toothbrush in the mix! Luckily, with baby #2, we were well prepared when that first tooth came in.

Callan thinks brushing his teeth is so much fun, especially when big brother is brushing his right next to him. He loves stand on the stool, even though he can barely see over the sink. He also loves to brush himself. I take a turn, then he takes a turn. Making brushing a fun routine is essential to keeping your kids teeth healthy! photo 7cf1925c-845e-4d1d-a1c8-500a296952b8_zps2bc1e629.jpg
Fluoride-free and safe to swallow (when used as directed), you can feel good about your little one using Aquafresh training toothpaste. With no artificial colors or preservatives, it's a natural choice, too. It's all we've used for our little guys until they learn to spit and we have 2 little mouthfuls of healthy teeth!

  1. Kids really like imitating what older ones do. It's good to see that Callan looks prepared and excited to go to his first dental checkup. He looks so happy and adorable while brushing his teeth. It's nice that he is aware that good oral health is important this early. Kudos to you! :)

  2. This is a good practice. Taking care of your baby's teeth now would yield satisfying results in the future. Though most people don’t really brush their baby’s first teeth, one can at least scrub them gently after meals and such once you start feeding them solid foods. Anyway, it looks like Callan enjoys brushing his teeth. It’s a good thing that you’ve introduced this to him in a fun way. How are his teeth now? I bet it's very healthy and cavity-free! Thanks for sharing this with us, Molly. Have a great day!
