Teeth Brushing

When babies are just getting teeth, give them a toothbrush to chew on. As they begin to brush their teeth with your help, here are a few ideas to make them like it more:

  • Talk to their teeth, make up a running story as you brush. Ask them to open their mouth wide so you can see the characters you are talking about.
  • Let baby brush your teeth after you have brushed theirs.
  • Give them a small flashlight and let them look at your teeth. This might generate interest in the subject.

Wit & Wisdom: If you live in a cold place and want to prevent your baby from catching a chill, take a shower yourself first, then bathe the baby when the room is warm from the steam. – Nicole T., Portland,OR
