My 10mo has 8 teeth already. How do I get her to brush her teeth?

My daughter eats lots of fruits and veggies and i give her some table food as well which in our household is almost always seasoned in some way. So she ends up with breath that smells like garlic or ginger or something. I typically wash her mouth with a washcloth at bath time and she has a toothbrush that she is accustomed to holding and chewing. That isnt working out so great anymore. To get her to really brush her teeth and tounge is challenging. Any advice?

    Just continue working with the toothbrush. But there’s the little rubber ones you can put on your finger as well. When they’re that little, anything you get done is something!

    Pretend to be doing it also, and make a little song out of it. Whenever my daughter saw me doing it she was eager to try, she loves brushing her teeth lol. Also make it routine, make sure to do it everyday around the same time she will start expecting it.
