Dental Care for Infants and Toddlers

My all-time favorite brush-your-teeth song has to be, "Brush Your Teeth" performed by Raffi!  Jude loves to watch it too, as he practices brushing his teeth. At this age brushing means sucking and chewing on the bristles until all of the flavored toothpaste is gone. I don't know about you, but I prefer rinsing and spitting!

Keeping them clean,
Bubbie and Jude
P.S. Any tricks on getting the kids to brush their teeth?

  1. My daughter is "religious" about brushing teeth. She started brushing and flossing her 2 daughters' teeth as soon as the first teeth came in. Whenever I visit we play this game: Name that "Tunth!" While I brush their teeth, I hum a song and they try to guess the song. They love it and don't mind opening wide to get their teeth brushed.

  2. What a great idea! Thanks! Can't wait to try it out on my grandson!

  3. That is a great idea. My son likes to suck off the toothpaste rather than have his teeth brushed properly. (i'm a mum not a gran by the way)
