Mummies , my baby is 1 years old and he already had almost full set of teeths which include his first and second molar . But how do i brush his teeth ? When do you introduce toothpaste ?
1 year old finger tooth brush works best. It's easier to reach the back molar. I have starts with toothpast just a tiny drop.
I'm using kodomo and so far so good. My boy doesn't do a great job but I try to let him manage. IF REALLY needed then ill help him brush. Just gently do it for him
i use those finger tooth brush for now to proper brush his teeth with just water. I will also get a baby toothbrush (from piegon) for him to learn how to brush himself. Toothpaste will only come in when he knows how to spit at arnd 2,5yoRead more
I use e pigeon toothbrush. Got 3 different brushes in a pack for different age groups. I find it very useful. Can be bought at Ntuc finess or kiddy palace. I will juz rinse e toothbrush with tap water. I will hold on to a wet hanky (sqeeze dry) in one hand. Den i juz put in e brush into his mouth n juz brush, along e gums, outer teeth & inner side, and tongue. After i clean one part, i will juz wipe e brush against e wet hanky, den i will continue brushing. So brush awhile n wipe on hanky every time, and continue tiz cycle. Tiz is wad i do.Read more
You can use stage 2 toothbrush to brush his teeth or finger brush if your child refuses to have his teeth brushed or use cloth if it scares him. No need toothpaste for now until he knows how to spit it out. Ensure mouth is well rinsed (get him to drink water) after meals or after eating sweet food. Wipe his teeth after that. Brush his teeth at least twice a day.Read more

- Hi, my LO is 10 months and he have got 8 teeth now. I just used cloth with water and wipe it, sometime I will give him a toothbrush and brush it for him. But he don't really know how to use it as he may be too young and he just keep wanting to bite the toothbrush even when I am the one holding it and brush for him. I am worried that his teeth is not well taken care of by just washing with water... or is it normal.? Is there a below 1 years old toothpaste? Or is not recommended.
Hi mummy, my hub bought the chicco brush set which has one for our gal to bite on to train herself to get used to the toothbrush, end up she now requests to brush her teeth herself..we also brush our teeth in front of her to show her. Now in order to ensure her teeth are well cleaned, my hub uses the cotton squares to remove the toothpaste...Anonymous
