My 1year old has 2 teeth and 4 more coming out. How do I start brushing his teeth?
We started in the tub when my son only had a couple teeth. Just left a toothbrush in the tub and we’d “play” with it. Pretending to brush and me pretending as well. Once he had more teeth (probably like 8-10) I actually got tooth paste and actually sat him down to brush before bedtime. My son went through a book phase at 1, if yours is into books there’s plenty of books about brushing teeth!
Also- I got a tooth brush with a dog on it.... he loves dogs 😂
Silicone banana brush! I tried just using a cloth to clean his teeth but he hated it... so we got the banana brush which he kinda chews on and I just go in later with it to clean myself. Just with water is fine. We didn’t start using training toothpaste (without fluoride) and a bristle brush until 1.5 yrs old.
We use the baby baus finger brushes.
At Walmart they have toothbrushes for kids 0-2 and they are really tiny. We use those with toothpaste the size of rice.
We watch the Elmo toothbrushing video on YouTube while we brush. Keeps them distracted!
They have wipes for mouth and finger tooth brushes ❤
