even the little floss wands?


Unfortunately, I did not see the need to brush my youngest baby's teeth right when they came in. I'll admit that I didn't think it was a big deal because I hadn't started brushing my two other children's teeth until probably around 12 months. The end result: my 10 month old has weakened enamel on three of his front top teeth. The pediatric dentist says these areas will form into cavities at some point. I knew not to put my baby to sleep with a bottle in the crib, but I was NOT aware that you shouldn't put them to bed within an hour of a bottle without wiping the teeth off with a wet washcloth. I think that it was a combination of early tooth eruption (at about 4 months) at a point when he was still taking many bottle a day and having a baby who didn't use a pacifier or suck on his fingers, which would have caused him to swallow more and thus rinse off his teeth!


My son is very good about brushing. We always let him see us brush and even let him brush our teeth. He came to my last visit to observe and after that we had a family visit where we all got cleaned. He was only breast fed so no bottle concerns here. Our trick these days is too say - I see some cheerios in there, let's clean it off before ants come for it. My husband also does teeth counting.


Thanks for this great advice! My 22 month old likes chewing on the toothbrush, but would bite down and refuse to brush. Very first time I tried the "sugar bugs" approach and she opened wide! It continues to work like magic - yay!

Awesome, Liz - glad it helped. It may be kinda gross, but it works for us and a slightly different version works for PP Miranda, so I guess we must be on to something! : )
