I know we still have some gummy bears, but those babies with teeth - how often do you brush their teeth? What is your baby's reaction to tooth brushing? Those without teeth, do you still do some gum cleansing?

This last weekend I got Sebastian his very firth toothbrush Before that, we used the Gerber baby-soft finger brush, but with 8 teeth, he started BITING our fingers through it really hard, so we got him a baby 0-24 month tooth brush. He LOVES it! So far, so good.

We used to use the finger brush too but same as you, when he got too many teeth and was biting we switched to a baby toothbrush. He hates it though, always fighting us (same as when we was his face, smacks us with his hands and tries to push us away)

We were using the finger brush. Gary only had the two teeth for so long now he has 4 and two coming in, so we will be buying a real brush probably the next grocery shopping trip!

I'm still using the finger brush too. He's only got 2 teeth and one fiiiiiiinally starting to poke through on the top. I brush his teeth (and gums) every night religiously He LOVES it, i think it's his favorite part of our bedtime routine.

We bought a toothbrush a long time ago but have never used it. Katelyn has 9 teeth now so I really need to get it out!

We have been brushng Lydia's with a toothbrush sinc she got her first 2 bottom teeth at 6 mo. she currently has 7 teeth. We have been bad at doing them daily though. typically every other day. Need to get better about that...She loves it though and is always willing and ready. Only thing, takes a few minuted because she likes to bite down and not let go, LOL

I keep his brush in the tub for now. That way I never forget. When his body is clean.. so are his teeth
