How to Brush My Baby's Teeth?
Do you know how to make our baby wants to brush his teeth? It is so hard to do it with my lil one. Sometimes, I just let him play with the toothbrush coz he won't open his mouth everytime I wanna brush his teeth. I did brush my teeth together with him, so that he'll follow me. Turn out he wanted to help me by giving me his toothbrush and trying to put it in my mouth.
Now gigi geraham Arsyad dh tumbuh. Lagi susah la nak bersihkan. Haaaiiyyyaa~ Sometimes I just wipe his teeth with clean cloth. Have to force him a bit tho. I dun know how to make it fun and more interesting so that he will brush his teeth without forcing him too. Btw, last time we went to Guardian to buy some stuff, and then I saw this First Teeth Baby Toothpaste. I know my baby can't use any toothpaste yet coz he doesn't know how to spill it out. But then, this toothpaste is fluoride free and safe for baby to swallow.
It has active milk enzymes and is naturally flavored with apple and banana. It is recommended for babies age 3 months and above. It is a bit pricey tho, for a small tube of 40g, it cost RM25.90. So, my hubby didn't let me buy it. He said we need to teach him to like brushing his teeth first then start using the toothpaste. But then, what if the toothpaste can make him like to brush his teeth? Coz it has flavors. And, all babies love bananas right? hahaha.. :P
Please help me mommas. Give me some ideas to make my son loves brushing his teeth instead of me forcing him too. :-(
