How to brush baby's teeth when they refuse
Sometimes we make things difficult for ourselves when we know the answer. Reuben is a determined little monkey and wants to do EVERYTHING himself or his own way! Brushing his teeth has been a nightmare for a few months. He’s 22 months now and he wants to be the one holding the brush. Problem is, he’ll just chew it in one place and not brush. There’s quite a fight if I try to brush them for him with a normal toothbrush.
I knew the answer right away. I’d used a Brush-Baby with my daughter from a baby and should have got one ages ago for Reuben too. I don’t know why I waited so long! Well I looked in Boots once and they didn’t have one, so I struggled on. I don’t know why I didn’t search online and just kind of forgot about them. I was in Asda recently and spied the Brush-Baby so grabbed it as soon as I saw it.
It works a treat! We should have got one a year ago!
Luckily Reuben always loves brushing his teeth, so getting him to brush them himself isn’t a problem at all. He couldn’t wait to try out his new Brush-Baby and used it perfectly. I added a small smear of toothpaste to each side. He instantly started chewing the brush around his whole mouth, leaving me satisfied he’s reaching so many more teeth than with his regular brush.
The Brush-Baby makes brushing teeth so much more fun for a toddler and our nightly hassle is no more. I’d recommend giving this chewable toothbrush a go if you’re struggling to brush your baby or toddler’s teeth. It’s totally worth the £5.
