Teeth Brushing that Lasts Longer than it Takes for Me to Get Ready

You gotta love him though.  I guess brushing teeth is super cool to a three year old; putting the toothpaste on the toothbrush and doing it all by yourself.  Or at least that’s what I figure.  He gets to do that and spit…what else could a boy want right?  He’s really good at it too.  He does all his teeth, his tongue and even the top of his mouth.  The only problem I have is that he doesn’t stop.  We literally sit in the bathroom for what feels like 30 minutes, just so he can get every tooth.

Colgate sent us this fun little collection called My First Colgate Toothpaste and Toothbrush. The toothpaste is low foaming, fluoride free, and has no artificial colors or preservatives.  The toothbrush has very gentle bristles.  He seems to get along with both very well.  He has a few toothbrushes that Colgate sent us so he loves choosing a different each night.

When do you start teaching your kids how to brush their teeth?  We start young!  Gotta teach them to get into the habit early so they don’t end up with teeth like mine.

The photos are terrible.  I didn’t take them but what ya gonna do.  It’s all about the moment right? Have a good’un!

    He’s such a cutie. Have to be proud that he wants to get every cowpoke tooth.
    It’s great that Colgate has a non-fluoride toothpaste out there for the little ones.
    I heard on TV by the American Dental Association that too much fluoride on
    little ones teeth can cause permanent discoloring.
    I wonder if that is what caused it on my step-son’s teeth.
    I mean when he was little the Dentist was always doing fluoride treatments on
    his teeth, had him brushing with a fluoride toothpaste too.
    His teeth always had this discolored look. Wish I would have known then what
    I know now. Ahh well, we live and learn.

    As early as I can I’ve been trying to make brushing teeth a fun habit for my son. He’s 11 months now. ALready, we’ve scheduled his first dental visit. Also, toothbrush we use for him would be those for infants – the one where you use fit your index finger onto. But for the toothpaste, we still don’t use any. Colgate’s first set of toothbrush and toothpaste seems like a good buy.

    I don’t want my daughter’s teeth to be like mine too. LOL. I admit it’s not easy to take care of toddler teeth especially it it’s coupled with my kid running around the house and going under the table just to avoid brushing. I’d suggest maybe Colgate could add some neat little cartoon character to entice my daughter to brush her teeth.
