My baby loves brushing his teeth!

edited August 2016 in Health & Medicine
My wee boy now has 4 teeth and he loves brushing them in the morning and in the evening. I think his gums are itchy that’s why. Also he seems to love the taste of the toothpaste.

He starts smiling and reaching for the toothbrush once we go into the bathroom and he sees it. Obviously we cannot really brush them properly as he prefers to chew on the brush but I think that’s about as good as it gets with an 8 month old baby.

I read in a few forums that a lot of other babies don’t like having their teeth brushed.

What about yours? Any problems with this?

    There are little baby toothbrushes that you can slip your finger into. It's very gentle on the gums and might actually help with teething(I can't be sure). I didn't realize brushing for babies was a thing, but I actually saw more than one type of baby toothbrush.

    One type looks like this:

  • My son loves to brush his teeth! He’s been since he was 9 months old, he will be 3 in October this year. I have a swallow safe toothpaste for him because he also likes the taste of the toothpaste. I have him brush his teeth with me so he can see the proper way to brush them
