Milestone Diary - Brush your teeth

Posted Dec 07 2011 7:43am






Toothbrush- Initially we tried Piegon toothbrush with less bristles.
Then we moved to use the regular children toothbrush.

Toothpaste- I hate those sweet flavored toothpastes.
After some trials I settled for "Miswak" toothpaste.
It is non-fluoride and it's not sweet. You have any better suggestions?

How we do it?
Initially I use to brush her teeth.
Then I started singing "AA AA AA , EE EE EE" while brushing so that she understands where the brush goes and how it moves.
Now she insists to brush on her own.
She understands that she needs to spit it but at times she gulps it too :( yucks..I think we will get there soon..

Brushing along with her helps as she tries to imitate every action you do. Right from washing your hands to wiping your face to checking your breath after brush :)

How is our teeth condition?
Only a doc can say I guess. Navya has these little shark teeth. Small and sharp.
With a small mouth, reaching every corner is a tough task.
