I never had a day when Brushing the toddler was easy. The Morning Routine which included Brushing was easily the most time – consuming and frustrating of all experiences. I have used tons of methods but the below have worked the best for me and I hope this helps you too. So here are 4 simple ways to make brushing fun and do read my review of the new favorite find – Mamaearth berry blast toothpaste
Make a Story
I usually have monsters attcking her front teeth anad then jumping to her back teeth and make the toothbrush into a Sword that kills them monsters, you can come up with anything as long as it keeps them fighting the monsters and not you 🙂
Give the Tot an Extra ToothBrush
Yes, so while you brush those belligerent gums, give the tot a brush and pour some handwash on it and let them clean whatever catches their fancy. I have also invited Her favorite toys for brushing. This dustracts her enough for me to get the job done.
When I was teaching her to brush on her own, I usually brushed with her. This is just once a week thing right now because I am not so sure if she is doing a fair job – but this does make her brush on her own.
Use Favorite Toothpaste – Mamaearth Berry Blast Toothpaste
I have tried a number of pastes till date, and even though she seems to be okay with them – the fact that all the tooth – pastes available in the market are laden with chemicals always bothered me! But when I found Mamaearth’s 100 percent natural Berry Blast Toothpaste – it let me use the toothpaste without fear!
Mamaearth Berry Blast Toothpaste is
- Fluoride Free
- SLS Free
- 100 percent natural
- high quality ingredients like xylitol, aloe vera and stevia
- strengthen their gums and removes plaques
- it is SAFE even if it is SWALLOED. Which is a Huge plus for Baby and Toddler Moms. My 4 year old still sometimes eats her paste
It is an instant choice in my home as the kids love the taste of this new paste! I usually recommend to all new moms – and it is not blmy n the mouth at all, and the taste isn’t overpowering too. Love this product from Mamaeath!
